Now that the second-season’s “Witching Hour” has been unleashed upon Netflix subscribers, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa‘s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has found a very interesting way to “convert” the masses – and this is one demo that might be a little hard to get to flip through the Book of the Beast: a group of priests. Let’s be clear: whatever your view might be on the show or organized religion, props to both the series and the priests for giving this a try.
Credit to Netflix for going this direction to promote the new season: some reactions didn’t surprise us, but quite a few did. And the tally at the end of it? Not exactly what I expected…
It’s a wicked world out there, and Sabrina is brewing up trouble. After signing her name in the Book of the Beast, Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka) struggles to find the balance between her place in the mortal world and her new darker side. New challenges await Sabrina in Part 2, including having to choose between the familiar mortal Harvey Kinkle, and the sexy warlock Nicholas Scratch. She may have signed her name to the Dark Lord, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t willing to raise a little hell.
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.
Here’s a look at the nine chapter titles for Part 2: “The Epiphany,” “The Passion of Sabrina Spellman,” “Lupercalia,” “Doctor Cerberus’s House of Horror,” “Blackwood,” “The Missionaries,” “The Miracles of Sabrina Spellman,” “The Mandrake,” and “The Mephisto Waltz.”
Joining the cast during one of those episodes 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.
