I'll be the first to admit that Season 2 of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina left me with way more questions than answers. Is Sabrina still the Herald of Hell? How will the team rescue Nick Scratch from the netherworld? What’s with all the incest?!
Unfortunately, we’ll probably have to wait until part three is released on Netflix to get most of those answers, but here’s everything you could possibly want to know about the next season of CAOS while we wait.
Is there a premiere date yet?
Yes! On December 7, Netflix announced the show would be coming back on January 24. They announced it via this very scary-looking YouTube video.
Great. Is there a trailer?
Not exactly. In lieu of a traditional trailer, the show released a music video, with Sabrina singing, featuring scenes from the new season. An interesting approach!
There might still be a traditional trailer to come, so we’ll throw that in here if and when it happens.
Where did we leave off?
Sabrina and the gang foiled the Herald of Hell prophesy by locking the Dark Lord in Nicholas Scratch’s body and sending him to the seven circles. As a parting gift, Lilith restored Sabrina’s powers. That leaves Sabrina, Harvey, Rosalind, and Theo able to start planning a rescue mission.
Aside from the Fright Club, Prudence and Ambrose are on the hunt for Father Blackwood, the Church of Night is in disarray, and Aunt Zelda has appointed herself High Priestess and head of The Academy of Unseen Arts.
So, what’s this season going to be about?
Great question! Here’s an official plot summary from Netflix:
“Part Three finds Sabrina reeling from the harrowing events of Part Two. Though she defeated her father Lucifer, the Dark Lord remains trapped within the human prison of her beloved boyfriend, Nicholas Scratch. Sabrina can’t live with herself knowing that Nick made the ultimate sacrifice and is suffering, burning in Hell under Madam Satan’s watchful eye. So with an assist from her mortal friends, the Fright Club (consisting of Harvey, Rosalind, and Theo), Sabrina makes it her mission to free him from eternal damnation and bring him back into her arms. However, the Dark Lord’s unseating has sent shock waves through the realms—and with no one on the throne, Sabrina must assume the title of Queen to defend it against a challenger, the handsome Prince of Hell Caliban. Meanwhile, in Greendale, a mysterious carnival rolls into town, bringing with it a threat to the Spellmans and the coven: A tribe of pagans looking to resurrect an ancient evil.”
Are we going to visit Hell?
YES. Finally, something I can really answer. Series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa confirmed the Fright Club’s rescue mission will take us straight to Hell.
“I think it’s safe to say that we are going to Hell, yes,” he told TheWrap at the Television Critics Association press tour. “We’re going to Hell. It’s very fun. It’s very fun. It’s dangerous, but it’s really fun.”
Okay, any other news I need to know?
We already know part four is happening! In December 2018, the streaming giant announced 16 more episodes to be divided over Seasons 3 and 4.
Here’s Salem’s announcement:
