Oh, what a tangled web Chilling Adventures of Sabrina showrunner/EP Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa weaves. With the Netflix series getting ready to wrap up its series run with the upcoming Part 4, Aguirre-Sacasa has been offering a number of teases for something happening after the final eight episodes- but what? He mentioned that comics might be the route to go with the series (including a Riverdale crossover), so it might be that. Then he posted birthday wishes for Chance Perdomo that included a ten-ton teaser for (once again) something: "P.S. Is Chance's birthday a good enough reason to tease that some extremely wicked #SabrinaNetflix news is coming very, very soon??".
Well, the teasers continued on Friday with Aguirre-Sacasa posting artwork of Kiernan Shipka's Sabrina throwing out Halloween candy while standing inside of a pumpkin. Accompanying the image was a reminder that we're deep into the Halloween season which means we're also close to Sabrina's big 17th birthday- but it sounds like viewers might be getting a present: "But will #CAOS fans get a trick or a treat beforehand…?". First thought? A date-release teaser/trailer, with the season dropping over the Halloween weekend. Then again, could it be a new season? A series of mini-movie episodes like Sherlock? An animated series? For now, it's more "Stay Tuned!":
Aguirre-Sacasa offered fans some reassurances to fans 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?
