Well guys, we have the best news ever — Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is officially coming back for more! That’s right, the Netflix original series we all know and love is getting a second season, and we couldn’t be more excited. Get ready, witches. Here’s everything we know so far…
When does Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 2 premiere?
Mark your calendars, you guys, because Season 2 will premiere on April 5, 2019! On December 1, 2018, we got our first official look at Part 2. Netflix finally dropped a teaser, and we’re not going to lie, it looks spooky AF.

And on Monday, March 18, 2019, they finally dropped a trailer.
The new trailer shows Sabrina looking like she’s about to light her school on fire. OK, we’re wondering what the heck is going on too. Guess we’ll have to wait and see! It also shows her cozying up to Nick, doing a ton of magic and pretty much kicking butt. We can’t wait!
They filmed the first and second seasons back-to-back.
Get this — the cast is already done filming the second batch of episodes. Production for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina kicked off back in March of 2018, and they filmed the two seasons back-to-back. They clearly wasted no time at all — and we’re feeling blessed, tbh. Seeing as the original Netflix deal was 20 episodes (and Season 1 consists of half), the second season will also consist of ten episodes.
Will there be any new characters?
Yep, a few new characters are coming to Greendale! Not only will McKenna Grace play a young Kiernan Shipka, but Alexis Denisof and Jedidiah Goodacre will also be reoccurring characters. Alexis is starring as Adam Masters, Mary Wardwell’s “handsome and charming” boyfriend. As for Jedidiah he plays Dorian Gray, the owner of a nightclub called Dorian’s Gray Room.
Season 2 is heavy on the magic.
Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who also created Riverdale, spilled that the series will be focusing on the witch life.
“A lot of Season 1 was Sabrina trying to stay in the mortal world, even as she kind of got deeper, further along the path [of Night]. She was always trying to keep one foot in the mortal world and that was sort of where her center of gravity was,” Roberto told E! News. “At the end of Season 1, what the ending seems to promise is that her base of operations has shifted. It’s now not that she goes to Baxter High and after school goes to the Academy, it’s now she goes to the Academy, and will she have any time [for the mortal world], and how much or how little will she relate to her previous mortal life is, I think, the question that we end on.”
Sabrina and Harvey’s relationship is up in the air, apparently.
“I am really torn because I love Sabrina and Harvey together but I’m really intrigued by Nick and Sabrina being together,” the showrunner spilled. “I really like that they’re so different. I hope that Harvey and Sabrina have a chance. I mean they’re definitely endgame in the comics. Yeah, their story is not quite done, I wouldn’t say.”
And based off the new poster and trailer, it definitely seems like there may be a total love triangle going down this season.
Things get steamier.
“In Season 1, as adorable as they are, there’s a real refreshing innocence to Harvey and Sabrina. I think in Season 2, when Sabrina’s spending a lot more time with the witch academy, we do start learning that witches have a very different point of view about sexuality and monogamy and being polyamorous and not being defined by labels,” he said. “That’s not just going to be backdrop. That’s going to be story that we tell.”
Season 2 is going to be way more twisted than Season 1.
Kiernan Shipka dished all about Season 2 to Girlfriend, saying, “I would say that it’s fiercer, the stakes are higher, the relationships are more charged and overall it’s this bigger, better, scarier season! The first season was the introduction to everything but this second season is really twisted and a lot more lives are in danger.”
The best part? The actress says we’ll pretty much be freaking TF out from start to finish.
“You’ll be on the edge of your seat the whole time,” she said. “There were scenes we were filming where people would say, ‘Do you think I’m going to make it out alive this season!?’ and they were big characters we’re talking about! So it’s really intense but its a really fun watch.”
OK, now brb – watching all of Season 1 on repeat until we get new episodes.
