“Here’s to Sabrina Spellman! Cheerleader by day, Queen of Hell by Night!”
Hell looks good on our girl Sabrina Spellman, played brilliantly again by Kiernan Shipka.
In the midst of all of the dark and twisted spell-casting, there is still room for some fun bubble gum pop moments featuring cheerleading, Riverdale Easter Eggs, and romance.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 3 premiered on Netflix on January 24th 2020 with 8 new episodes (55-60 minutes in length). It stars Kiernan Shipka, Miranda Otto, Lucy Davis, Chance Perdomo, Ross Lynch, and Michelle Gomez.
Part 3 starts off with a bang, as Sabrina is desperate to find a way into Hell to free her boyfriend, Nick. With the help of her mortal friends, Sabrina crosses paths with some new foes along the way. Sabrina is destined for the crown, but is quickly challenged again and again.
Her loyalties are tested, but where does her heart truly lie?
Parts 1 and 2 were absolutely fantastic, but can Part 3 measure up? Let’s find out…
We dive deeper into a magical world filled with history, wickedness, and mystery.
The show seamlessly submerges us into a world with dark magic wedged into every nook and cranny of history. We learn about Dante’s Inferno, vampires, banshees, voodoo, Pagan gods, and more. While it may initially seem like this is quite a lot to cram into 8 episodes, each adventure worked so well with the plot, luring us in that much more.
New and interesting characters.
The show already has a large cast with amazing characters, but some of the new additions really added to the charm of the show. But let’s not forget about Lilith aka Mary Wardwell, who continues to be a phenomenal scene stealer.
I also really appreciated the time spent toward developing some of the other characters, specifically Theo and Prudence.
Some of the new villains prove to be quite formidable, constantly putting our girl Sabrina Spellman to the test, which provides us with a lot of edge-of-your-seat moments and exciting twists. More please!
Lots of fun.
Even though Sabrina is now the Queen of Hell, she still decides to try out for the cheerleading squad with Ros. We get some fantastic musical numbers that gave me a 90’s nostalgia along with some crafty Riverdale Easter Eggs, which is known as the murder capital of the world. Where’s vigilante Archie when you need him?
I thought that this poppy fun feel really balanced out the darker elements of the show, giving me a Buffy the Vampire Slayer vibe while still casting its way toward its own magical identity.
None. Well, I guess if I need to pick something, it would be that I wanted more episodes.
Parts 1 and 2 featured 16 episodes split up into 8 at a time. Parts 3 and 4 will follow the same format. We will get the next 8 episodes on July 3rd 2020, which is a long time to wait to catch up with our favorite witches!
So am I in or out?
Of course I’m in…100 percent and more! This show gets better and better. Countdown until the next witching hour!
If you aren’t watching this show yet, I absolutely recommend it. It is so much fun and the characters are bewitching…even without the magic. Enjoy witches!
