Something fans of Netflix series The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina would not want to hear: The series has been cancelled.
The streaming giant has decided that the supernatural Riverdale spinoff series will be coming to an end with “part four,” which will be streaming on the service later this year. The good news, at least, is that it appears the Kiernan Shipka-starring show will have an ending.
“Working on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has been an incredible honour from day one,” said the show’s creator and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
“The cast, beginning with Kiernan as everyone’s favourite teen witch, has been an absolute joy. I am beyond thankful to the crew, writers, editors, assistants, and everyone for pouring so much love into this dark dream of a show. I’m also grateful to our partners at Netflix, Warner Bros., Berlanti Television and Archie Comics for letting us tell the story we wanted to tell, the way we wanted to tell it. We can’t wait for everyone to see part four.”
It’s not a particularly good time for fans of the Riverdale universe. Earlier this month, The CW cancelled Lucy Hale-led spinoff Katy Keene after just one season.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was developed for broadcast on The CW before Netflix, confident with how The CW’s Riverdale was performing on their service, acquired it with a two-season order.
Netflix is on a bit of a roll when it comes to wrapping up shows. Apart from Sabrina, final seasons for Ozark, The Kominsky Method and Dead to Me were also announced by Netflix this month.
