Here’s everything known about Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 5 and the show’s future after its Netflix cancelation. The latest season of the Archie Comics-based horror series was a game-changer for the latest iteration of Sabrina the Teenage Witch. After the events of season 3, in which Sabrina caused a time-travel paradox, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 4 had a lot of fallout to deal with. With two Sabrinas existing in the same timeline, it was only a matter of time before the universe would start to feel the ripple effects of Sabrina’s time travel.
While the Fright Club and the rest of Sabrina’s loved ones came together to resolve her actions, it came with a price. As they all tried to stop the Void that was inside of Sabrina, the show’s heroine had to pay the ultimate price, and Kiernan Shipka’s character was killed off in the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina series finale. In order to save the world, the show’s titular character gave up her own life and, unfortunately, there was no magical post-credit scene to undo her death. Despite it being one of the most popular shows on the platform, Netflix announced Chilling Adventures of Sabrina would be coming to an end with season 4. But despite a devastating series finale, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 5 might happen after all.
The Latest Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 5 News
While ever seeing Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 5 seemed unlikely, fans haven’t stopped wishing for more. Now, the creative mind behind Sabrina and Riverdale, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, has teased fans with more and has the excitement levels rising. In an interview with Deadline, he said, “I reached out to [Archie Comics CEO/publisher] Jon Goldwater and told him that Sabrina is going to eventually come back. We’re going to find a way to continue with Kiernan, but in the meantime, what if we bring back the comic book?“
The big news isn’t that there would be another Sabrina comic book, which wouldn’t be a wildly unexpected move from Archie Comics. The reason the comments are noteworthy is that Augiree-Sacasa said that Savrina will “eventually come back“, and that he was finding a way to work with Kiernan Shipka. What this means is unclear. Netflix announced that season 4 would be the end of the series, and that pretty much let people know that Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 5 was not coming. However, with him saying Kiernan Shipka was returning as Sabrina, it makes one wonder if another streaming service or television network is stepping up.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 5 Is Not Confirmed
There is no word on whether any network would bring Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 5 to fans. Luckily, Keirnan Shipka officially reprised the role of Sabrina as part of Riverdale season 6, finally giving fans of both shows the live-action crossover producers have been teasing for years. Sabrina appeared in one episode of Riverdale season 6. This episode jumped through time with different versions of Abigail Blossom from 1892, Poppy Blossom from 1957, and Cherry Blossom in the present day. In the episode, Sabrina revealed that witches never really die, which explained her return and gave fans more hope for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 5
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 5 Cast
While there is no news of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 5, but as Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa said, if it does come back, expect Keirnan Shipka to be back in the title role as Sabrina, the teenage witch. However, who else returns is anyone’s guess. Since most television show casts are locked into deals, most of the cast members have likely already moved on to other projects. It would be hard to get everyone back. One would hope that Ross Lynch would return as Harvey Kinkle, as well as Miranda Otto and Lucy Davis as her aunts, Zelda and Hilda.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 5 Story Details
Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa said Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 5 would have finally seen Sabrina and Riverdale crossover fans have wanted to see since Sabrina was developed for The CW. It happened as a comic book titled “Witch War.” This wasn’t the first time that a genre series has continued in comic form, with shows like Smallville and Buffy the Vampire Slayer having done that with great success. In the story, Sabrina was back and ended up in a battle with evil forces that resulted in the death of one of her closest companions. So, as sad as it is to see Chilling Adventures of Sabrina end its TV run, at least a fifth season n a comic format gave fans more of the story to sink their teeth into.
