Get excited, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina fans: Season two of the series is coming to Netflix in just a few weeks. The streaming platform dropped a trailer for the next chapter on March 18, but there's still so much mystery surrounding what's to come. In fact, the only thing that's certain at this point is Sabrina's bleach-blonde hair.
OK, I'm kidding: Netflix and the cast have released a few bits and bytes about the new season, and they're only making fans more excited. Below, here's everything we know (so far) about Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season two.
The release date. April 5.
Episode count. There will be 10 new episodes total, and they'll serve as a part two of sorts to the first batch of episodes from last October. A part 3 and part 4 of Sabrina have also been ordered, consisting of eight episodes each.
The trailer. Netflix released the first official trailer for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season two on Monday, March 18, and it looks way darker than the first. Sabrina is embracing her powers more than ever before—which is yielding some graphic, terrifying new storylines. Check it out for yourself, below.
Netflix dropped a teaser for the new season back in December:
And a poster on March 13:
Sabrina has some big changes. That platinum hair, for starters, but the updates go even deeper. "Sabrina definitely changes and shifts a lot," Kiernan Shipka (a.k.a Sabrina) told Bloody Disgusting in October 2018. "Her growth is very evident and the second season definitely has a different spin on it than the first season. They are very different from each other.”
Her choices will guide what happens in season two. You're probably thinking, "Well, duh," but remember: Sabrina made a crucial choice in the season-one finale by signing the Book of the Beast. That, obviously, is going to have some repercussion beyond her new hair color. "I would just say that, without giving too much away, because it would be a bit of a spoiler, the way that Sabrina’s life takes certain turns and certain decisions she makes inform the second season," Shipka also told Bloody Disgusting. "The finale of the first season sets up a lot. It goes in a different direction. We see more different characters. It deals with a different side of things.”
There might be a Salem-centric episode. The talking cat you loved in Melissa Joan Hart's Sabrina the Teenage Witch is much different this time around. For one, he doesn't talk, but CAS creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa told IndieWire that might change. “When we did the show, [he doesn’t speak] partly to project the horror tone,” Aguirre-Sacasa said. “That isn’t to say that Salem won’t talk in the future.” He also revealed to IndieWire there have been discussions about an episode just about Salem, though nothing's confirmed.
New characters are coming. Alexis Denisof is stepping in to play Mary Wardwell’s boyfriend, but here's the catch: He doesn't know Madam Satan has taken over her body. Actor Jedidiah Goodacre will play a warlock named named Dorian Gray who owns a nightclub, so does this mean we'll get to see the witches turn up?
And new relationships will form. Are Harvey (Ross Lynch) and Sabrina not getting back together? Maybe. "There's gonna be some new exciting relationships that blossom in season two, which I think the fans aren't gonna be initially excited about, but I think they're gonna grow to love these new relationships," Lynch told Entertainment Tonight*. "I don't even know what I'm officially allowed to talk about… Every character meets new people."
We'll update this post with more information as it comes in.
