Netflix’s dark take on Sabrina the Teenage Witch turned out to be one of the surprise hits of 2018, with the streaming service locking creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and the cast down to at least a four season run.
Production on season 3 (it shot back to back with season 4) began in Vancouver at the end of April, and ran through the summer. We were hoping to get the third block of episodes in time for Halloween (CAOS was Netflix’s big show at the same time in 2018), but that would have only given the production team six months to turn around eight episodes. Still, not long to wait now, though…

And what would Sabrina be without, you know, Sabrina. Kiernan Shipka will be back, along with Ross Lynch (Harvey), Michelle Gomez (Madame Satan), Miranda Otto (Zelda), Lucy Davis (Hilda) and Chance Perdomo (Ambrose).
What is going to happen?
At the end of season 2, Sabrina was making plans to head to Hell to save her boyfriend Nick, who had imprisoned the Dark Lord in his body there.
Elsewhere, Ambrose and Prudence are intent on hunting down Father Blackwood, and Zelda is the interim leader of the Church of Night.
Judging by the trailer, it looks like Sabrina will still have to juggle living between two worlds, adding frequent trips to Hell to the mix. And of course, we know Sabrina is not one to let any misogynistic practices go unchallenged, no matter how old or traditional, so she’s likely to give, well, hell to whoever is in charge down there.
It also looks like Sabrina and Roz will join Baxter High’s cheer squad, with romance on the cards for Theo.
Is there a trailer?
Netflix also released a spooky music video ahead of the launch of season 3 which hints at how things might play out for Sabrina and Nick.
Are there any set photos from the new season?
Yes, Netflix has given fans a first look at the new episodes, releasing these images of what awaits Sabrina and friends this season…
