Netflix may be in the process of scrapping its comic book based series from Marvel (more on that at this link), but the streaming service seems quite happy with its Archie entry The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina as it has renewed that through a fourth season. That series debuted on October 26th with its ten-episode first season and it already had an order for a second season of ten eps in place (plus it received a special holiday episode this month). Apparently Netflix is pleased with the performance of the series so far because it has ordered sixteen additional episodes that will comprise a third and fourth season for the show. The network has not released viewing numbers for the show, but we do know that Riverdale (which takes place ostensibly in the same universe and appeals to the same audience) has performed quite well for the streamer in its encore runs (The CW makes the completed seasons available to Netflix eight days after they have ended). The second season of the show is already scheduled to debut on April 5th, and the early renewal could mean that the third season may be available for Fall 2019.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina follows the title character who is half-witch and half-mortal and must use her powers to fight against evil forces while also trying to live a normal, human life. It stars Kiernan Shipka, Ross Lynch, Lucy Davis, Chance Perdomo, and Michelle Gomez and comes from the same producers working on Riverdale for The CW.
We are still waiting to hear word on two other Netflix shows which debuted since August: The Haunting of Hill House and The Innocents. And with the Fall wrapping up, we may hear word on more shows that have aired the past few months.
