Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina ended with Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka) opting to take a break from her mortal-witch-life struggle and decide to lean into her dark side. It appears she's going to be spending a lot more time at the Academy for Unseen Arts in the future while sporting the signature white locks from the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina comic series.
The cliffhanger that ended Season 1 left us with a lot of questions, but luckily we already know Season 2 is currently in production in Vancouver, so we can skip right over the part where we worry about whether our favorite show will be renewed or canceled and skip right to asking questions about what's next. Although we don't know much else about Season 2 yet, here's everything we know so far.
There will be 10 episodes in Season 2. When Netflix picked up Sabrina for an initial two-season run, it ordered 20 episodes. Simple subtraction tells us that since there were 10 episodes in Season 1, there will be 10 episodes in Season 2.
Season 2 could be even darker than Season 1. Shipka told Bloody Disgusting in October that the finale of Season 1 sets up quite a lot for Sabrina and her friends. "It goes in a different direction. We see more different characters. It deals with a different side of things," she said of Season 2. Considering that Sabrina spent most of Season 1 trying to hold on to her mortal life, we can reasonably assume that the "different side" will be a deeper exploration of her witch-half.
There could be a Riverdale crossover. Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa said during both the Riverdale and Sabrina panels at New York Comic Con that he was hopeful for a crossover between the CW and Netflix series. There was already a mini crossover in Season 1 when Ben Button (Moses Thiessen) delivered a pizza to Madame Satan (Michelle Gomez), but Aguirre-Sacasa and Netflix wanted to see Sabrina stand on its own before actually integrating the two universes, which are linked in the comics. Considering the great reception Season 1 has had so far, it wouldn't be impossible to see more characters come face to face.
Salem might actually talk! Aguirre-Sacasa confided to IndieWire that Sabrina's cat Salem didn't speak in Season 1 as he did in the '90s sitcom and in the comic books because Aguirre-Sacasa didn't want to take away from the horror element of the show. "When we did the show, [he doesn't speak] partly to project the horror tone," he said. "That isn't to say that Salem won't talk in the future."
It could be during his backstory episode. The executive producer also teased that the writers have discussed doing a Salem-centric episode in Season 2 that would explain the familiar's backstory. Yes, all of the Salem, please!
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 1 is now streaming on Netflix.
