Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is headed back for part 3 and has set a January 2020 release date. Here’s everything we know about part 3 of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina including cast, plot and more.

The Netflix Original supernatural-teen drama, based on the Archie Comic of the same name has been one of Netflix’s best teen series. The tone of the Netflix adaptation is darker and has more gothic elements than its light-hearted Nickelodeon predecessor. Netflix marketed the series perfectly by releasing Sabrina on Halloween 2018, overnight the Original became a sensation.

On her 16th birthday, the half-witch and half-mortal Sabrina Spellman must make a choice, does she choose the path of light? Or the path of night?

Finale Recap for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 2

Spoiler warnings for part 2 of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Praise Lillith

Sabrina, alongside her friends, family, Nick and Lillith were finally able to defeat Satan, but at a cost. With the Acheron Configuration failing to contain the Dark Lord, Nick was left with no choice but to absorb Satan and use his own body as a prison.

To keep Satan within Nick’s body, Lillith was then left without a choice but to take Nick with her back to hell so Satan could not escape. Upon Lillith’s departure, she declared herself as the ‘Queen of Hell,’ and granted Sabrina two gifts. The first gift bestowed was her powers and the second would be revealed later.

The Academy

Father Faustus has poisoned the enclave from the Church of Night and fled with his twin son and daughter. Killing most of the members of the Church, very few warlocks and witches are left with the majority still attending the academy. Prudence and Ambrose have pledged to find Father Faustus and kill him to save the twins from the former high priests’ incestuous plans. Once Faustus has been dealt with the pair will return to seek out there ‘true destiny as a witch.’

The Church of Lillith and the Fright Club

With so few members of the church left and essentially a broken religion, Zelda has declared herself as the High Priestess of the Church of Night. Though the siblings do not know what the plan is, they will endeavor to help those that remain. Meanwhile, Sabrina and her friends reconcile over milkshakes at the local diner. Proud of their achievements they self proclaim their group as the ‘Fright Club’ with Sabrina declaring her intention of walking into Hell to take back her boyfriend.

Who is in the cast for Part 3 of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina?

All the core cast will likely make a return to series for Part 3.

Matty Finochio has been added to the credits for season 3. It’s also expected that Bronson Pinchot will return for season 3 too.

We do have some news on the status of two actors within the show. Some will be delighted with the news.

What to expect from Part 3 of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Sabrina and the ‘Fright Club’ have stated their intent to find a way into Hell so they can save Nicholas. This shouldn’t be an easy task but with a doorway to hell located within the Greendale mines, this will make Sabrina’s task easier. They will have to find a spell or ritual to open the door, but even with Sabrina’s new powers, she is greatly putting herself and her friends at risk.

One doesn’t just walk into Hell and now that Lillith is the Queen of Hell, she won’t just easily give up the imprisoned body of Nicholas. Sabrina will have to learn her actions have consequences and sadly she may just have to learn that the hard way.

As for the other members of the Spellman clan, Zelda has declared herself as the High Priestess of the Church of Night. With very few members of the church left thanks to Father Faustus’ poison, it will be up to Zelda and Hilda to lead the young generation of Witches and Warlocks that are left. Ambrose has joined Prudence on her hunt for her father so she can save her baby brother and sister from the incestuous marriage Faustus has in mind.

In an interview with The Wrap back in August 2019, the creator of the show Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa only teased that “I think it’s safe to say that we are going to Hell, yes. We’re going to Hell. It’s very fun. It’s very fun. It’s dangerous, but it’s really fun.”

What is the production status of Part 3 of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina?

Official Production Status: Completed (Last Updated: 07/12/2019)

The timeline of part three’s production has been easy to follow thanks to the cast posting photos behind the scenes:

  • CAOS cast was gathered for the first script reading of the latest season on May 18th.
  • Filming for part 3 began in May 2019 and wrapped up in September.
  • The cast and crew received a two-week break before filming began for the fourth part of CAOS.
  • Filming for the second season (parts three and four) is scheduled to end on February 20th, 2020.

Are there any photos for Part 3 of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina?

If you’re looking for photos, the cast has been very relaxed taking photos on set. Through the various social media accounts of the cast, you’ll get a rough idea of the ongoings of Part 3.

How many episodes will there be for Part 3 of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina?

Unfortunately, there will be fewer episodes in Part 3 of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. The second season will have its episode count reduced from 20 to 16. This means that part 3 will air 8 episodes instead of 10.

Hopefully, this means the budget has been allocated towards special effects and making CAOS even better than ever.

Is there a trailer for Part 3 of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina?

Sadly, there are no teasers or trailers available for Part 3. So instead here is the cast spilling all the delicious secrets behind the scenes.

When is the Netflix release date for Part 3 of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina?

We were very disappointed that part 3 didn’t arrive during Netflix’s Halloween line-up for 2019. In an interview with the creator earlier in the year, he did warn we wouldn’t be getting new episodes before Halloween.


Production for the fourth part is now ongoing, so it’s only natural to think that part 3 would be arriving soon. Unfortunately, the chances of Sabrina returning to Netflix in 2019 are worryingly slim as Netflix already has a large line up of Originals for December, and sadly Sabrina hasn’t listed as one of them.

On December 7th, 2019, it was confirmed at Argentina’s Comic-Con that part 3 of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina would be coming to Netflix on January 24th, 2020.
