At the very tail-end of 2020, Netflix unveiled the final eight episodes of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, a supernatural horror series based on the Archie comic book series of the same name. For TV viewers who grew up watching ABC/The WB's Sabrina the Teenage Witch, this show was quite a tonal departure. But, it found its own audience, notably based on its moody take on the material. Alas, it wasn't meant to last.
Starring Kiernan Shipka as the titular half-witch, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was met with positive reviews and a bewitched fanbase, but the series only lasted two seasons (each broken into two parts) before the streaming service called it quits. Now that the show has prematurely ended, what is the cast working on next? Let's find out!
Kiernan Shipka (Sabrina Spellman)
As the titular character, a half-human, half-witch teenager who's beginning her dark education, Kiernan Shipka found her star-making role in The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
