Okay, if there's a positive we can take away from Chilling Adventures of Sabrina showrunner/EP Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa's recent tease? At least it's not creepy like the last one. Aguirre-Sacasa's been throwing out teaser over the last several days- but is it for the release of the final eight episodes (Part 4) or something else? First, there was the birthday post for Chance Perdomo that included this: "P.S. Is Chance's birthday a good enough reason to tease that some extremely wicked #SabrinaNetflix news is coming very, very soon??". Then he posted artwork of Kiernan Shipka's Sabrina throwing out Halloween candy while standing inside of a pumpkin- with a reminder of the Halloween season and Sabrina's 17th birthday ("But will #CAOS fans get a trick or a treat beforehand…?"). Then we had a post with a creepy old-school Sabrina Halloween mask ("Tis the spooky season. A retro Sabrina Halloween mask from the 1960's. Not too much longer now, #CAOS fans…") that didn't exactly help us sleep at night.
On Sunday, it was another look at the illustrated Sabrina, sitting atop the large pumpkin with a broomstick- seemingly waiting for something just like the rest of us. For his part, Aguirre-Sacasa included the following caption with it: "KNOCK, KNOCK, KNOCK, on the devil's door… Not much longer now for a #Sabrina treat for #CAOS fans…". Are we looking at Part 4 dropping this Friday, or could a little hope be springing eternal for the series?

Aguirre-Sacasa offered fans some reassurances in a statement that was released when the cancellation news first broke. "Working on 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' has been an incredible honor from Day One. The cast, beginning with Kiernan as everyone's favorite 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," wrote Aguirre-Sacasa. "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."

Prepare yourselves, Coven. This one is brutal. A lot of love and magic went into this witch-house. A lot of memories were made within its walls. A lot of late nights were spent here. With a lot of mosquitoes and a lot of frogs. And a lot of wonderful people all dreaming the same dark dream. (I always picture @kiernanshipka in her special chair, sleeping soundly, with her familiar Frankie guarding her.) Before shooting started, we spent many, many weeks looking for the Spellman house. In the end, our incredible production designer @lieselottesoper said: "I think we need to build it. This has to be as iconic as the Psycho house." And that's what Lisa and her team made. She was there today when they knocked it down. And she saved certain things, including the house's weathervane. (And maybe the odd wooden frog or two.) We haven't seen the last of that weathervane. As Zelda says in Part Four: "There is no death for witches. Only transformation." The story of the witches of Greendale isn't over. We still have Part Four, waiting for you, with the Eldritch terrors. And after that… Well, come closer and I'll tell you a secret…🔮🖤📺🔥🌑🕷👠👩👩👧🧟♂️👸🏼👨🏻💻💋
According to the official description from the streaming service, the final eight episodes find The Eldritch Terrors descending upon Greendale. The coven will be forced to fight each terrifying threat one-by-one (The Weird, The Returned, The Darkness to name a few), all leading up to…The Void, which is the End of All Things. As the witches wage war, with the help of The Fright Club, Nick begins to slowly earn his way back into Sabrina's heart, but will it be too late?
