When the hands on the clock strike midnight on Friday, April 5 (ummm… that’s pacific time: the hands of the clock will be at 3 a.m. for you east coasters), “The Witching Hour” will once again be upon us, with Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa‘s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 2 set to work its magic for Netflix. Now with the series having already been renewed for 16 episodes (or Parts 3 and 4), Netflix is giving viewers a look at the official poster for the series’ second season return:
Let’s not forget the following preview images released earlier this month, giving us a glimpse at what life will be like for Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka) now that she’s signed the Book of the Beast. From the looks of things, it would appear Ms. Spellman is still trying to live in two different worlds… but how long can it last?
Especially when the Dark Lord himself comes a’callin…
Need a little something to calm the nerves and ease the stress from waiting for the series’ return? Here’s your opportunity to check out (for the 2,468th time) the teaser for Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Part 2:
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina imagines the origin and adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft. Tonally in the vein of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist, this adaptation finds Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature — half-witch, half-mortal — while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina stars Kiernan Shipka, 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
Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who also serves as chief creative officer of Archie Comics, penned the script for the series. Aguirre-Sacasa executive produces alongside Riverdale collaborators Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater and Lee Toland Krieger. The drama hails from Warner Bros. Television-based Berlanti Productions.
Adding to next season’s wicked fun is Alexis Denisof (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel) as Adam Masters, Ms. Wardwell’s boyfriend who returns to Greendale after a stint overseas working with Physicians Without Frontiers — unaware that his fiancée has been taken over by the demoness Madam Satan; and Jedidiah Goodacre (The Originals, The 100) as warlock Dorian Gray: owner of exclusive nightclub Dorian’s Gray Room and enigmatic gentleman of an indeterminate age who is very good at keeping secrets – especially his own.
