We all remember the classic Sabrina the Teenage Witch series, featuring a lighthearted atmosphere, charismatic characters, and a sarcastic black cat – Robert Aguirre-Sacasa’s rendition of the classic in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is a much more serious, modernistic retelling and continuation of the old comic book. Robert transforms the original story from sitcom, quick witted humor into a narrative following Sabrina as she challenges the traditions of her family and undergoes major changes to her life as she heads inevitably closer and closer to her fate. What fate, exactly?
We must watch to find out – but until then, we have our first look at Part 2 (Season 2) below:
Coming just a few days after April Fool’s day, it’s no joke that the second season of the Netflix show is going to be packed with what creator Robert says is “a lot sexier, and a lot scarier,” – and I’m here for it. We can expect Part 2 to be a lot different than season 1, with huge changes within the characters and the issues they must face.
The finale of season one had many important details that you won’t want to miss before indulging in the next ten episodes – and running at about just an hour per episode, this season could be an easy-binge for the even the inexperienced TV and movie fanatics.
Kiernan Shapka recently said that the decisions Sabrina made in the first season have a large impact on the outcome of Season 2 – don’t we sometimes wish that all series had a choose your own adventure option?
I just hope that the directors can keep the show classy while engaging in more personal themes such as what is rumored to be a love triangle. We all saw what happened to American Horror Story: Hotel which attempted to mix sex and horror – what came from that was in my opinion a sort of horror erotica that based solely around the sex appeal of Lady Gaga.
I’d love to see the producers of the series merge aspects of a love triangle and sex appeal without taking over the storyline.
Overall, whether you’re coming for the sex, or the horror, Part 2 of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is one that you will not want to miss – when it arrives on Netflix on April 5th.
