Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is premiering on Netflix this weekend, but the streaming service is already at work on a second season! Netflix’s interest in greenlighting two seasons right off the bat was the reason the show moved from The CW to the streaming network, in fact. Kiernan Shipka was already at work on season two when we spoke by phone this week.
“We’re filming [Season 2] right now,” Shipka revealed to us.
“We went straight into the second season from the first and it’s been really so exceptionally fun to film, especially given the fact that I feel like we’re already in such a rhythm from coming out of the first season that to jump right into the second one was really, really fun and just a great opportunity to keep the momentum going. We definitely… Sabrina definitely changes and shifts a lot. Her growth is very evident and the second season definitely has a different spin on it than the first season. They’re very different from each other.”
Many of those differences will be apparent when you finish binge-watching season one.
“I would just say that, without giving too much away, because it would be a bit of a spoiler, the way that Sabrina’s life takes certain turns and certain decisions she makes inform the second season,” Shipka said. “The finale of the first season sets up a lot. It goes in a different direction. We see more different characters. It deals with a different side of things.”
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina premieres Friday, October 26 on Netflix.
