Netflix has released the trailer for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 2 and announced the premiere date. The show's first season, which made its debut in October, has become a big hit for the streaming service and it has been in the news quite a bit since then. Aside from some negative press for their use of the Baphomet statue, the series has been praised by critics and fans, who are enjoying a new take on the Sabrina story from the comic books.
Shooting on Sabrina Season 2 has been underway for weeks, and we are treated to new footage in the trailer. Sabrina starts to wear black and there are teases of some dark arts. However, there is no sign of the aforementioned Baphomet statue, though it will remain on the show. Ambrose Spellman (Chance Perdomo), Hilda Spellman (Lucy Davis), Zelda Spellman (Miranda Otto), Mary Wardwell (Michelle Gomez) and Nicolas Scratch (Gavin Leatherwood) are also spotted in the Season 2 trailer, which Netflix reveals will premiere on April 5th, 2019.
The fact that Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is coming to Netflix in April should be good news for fans who have been waiting for a premiere date. With that being said, it's still kind of a long wait for new episodes. Thankfully, Netflix has fans covered with the upcoming Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Holiday Special, which premieres on December 14th. The title of the episode is "A Midwinter's Tale," and it takes place on the longest night of the year, which happens to be the Church of Night's annual winter solstice celebration. Things are looking up until some uninvited guests appear.
In other Chilling Adventures of Sabrina news, casting additions have been announced for Season 2 and the holiday special. Mckenna Grace, Alexis Denisof, and Jedidiah Goodacre have been added, with 12-year old Grace playing the younger version of Kiernan Shipka's Sabrina in the holiday special. The two actresses look remarkably similar and it's imagined that the young actress will make an appearance in Season 2 as well, though that has not been confirmed. Denisof and Goodacre will make their first appearances on the hit show when Season 2 premieres on April 5th.
Alexis Denisof will recur as Mary Wardwell's (Michelle Gomez) boyfriend, Adam Masters. Adam is described as handsome and charming, and returns home to find that things have changed a lot since he has been gone. Jedidiah Goodacre is playing warlock Dorian Gray. He is the owner of Dorian's Gray Room, which is an exclusive nightclub. Gray is an enigmatic gentleman and is very good at keeping secrets, especially his own. From the looks of things, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 2 will be even darker than Season 1, which should make some fans pretty excited.
