We have our first look at Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2. Netflix has released the first photos from the upcoming sophomore season of this revamped take on Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Anyone who watched the season 1 will surely attest that this is not the Sabrina of the late 90s/early 2000s. While there is still plenty of teenage drama to be found, this is a much darker take on the material and all of that is present in these first photos.
The photos, first and foremost, reveal a love triangle forming that Sabrina has got herself into between Harvey Kinkle, her ex, and Nicholas Scratch, her new Warlock squeeze. That's the main focus of this first batch of photos and will clearly be a huge focus in season 2. There is, however, one photo that hints at the darkness around the corner, with our titular character wandering the halls of her school with Balphomet, the hideous and terrifying goat-headed demon beast of ancient lor standing right behind her.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2, which is being billed as "part 2," sees Sabrina exploring her darker side and struggling to find a balance between her social life in the mortal world while exploring her heritage more deeply. Meanwhile, she's caught in an unholy love triangle between Nicholas Scratch and Harvey Kinkle. To complicate matters, The Dark Lord, Madame Satan and Father Blackwood continue to conjure chaos and, as it turns out, there are others who are also trying to raise hell. Star Kiernan Shipka, in a recent interview with Girlfriend, had this to say about the upcoming season.
"I did a little bit of voice recording for it today so I just got the first peek at it and it's sooooo good! I would say that it's fiercer, the stakes are higher, the relationships are more charged and overall it's this bigger, better, scarier season! The first season was the introduction to everything but this second season is really twisted and a lot more lives are in danger. You'll be on the edge of your seat the whole time. There were scenes we were filming where people would say, "Do you think I'm going to make it out alive this season!?" and they were big characters we're talking about! So it's really intense but it's a really fun watch."
The cast includes Miranda Otto, Lucy Davis, Ross Lynch, Michelle Gomez, Chance Perdomo, Jaz Sinclair, Richard Coyle, Tati Gabrielle, Adeline Rudolph, Abigail Cowen, Lachlan Watson, Bronson Pinchot, and Gavin Leatherwood. Netflix has already renewed the series through season 4, so we've got a lot more witchy goodness on the way over the next couple of years. The CW may have missed out by not giving this show the green light when they had the chance.
With the next season just around the corner, we should be expecting a trailer in the very near future. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina arrives on April 5. Be sure to check out the new photos from Netflix below.
