The brand new holiday episode of “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,“ titled “A Midwinter’s Tale” and streaming on Netflix as of this past Friday, may have seemed like a one-off Christmas special, but it was actually a bridge between Season 1 and next year’s Season 2, series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa makes it clear in a chat with The Wrap this week.
“A Midwinter’s Tale” ended with three wise demon-men making their presence known…
“They’re definitely a threat and, you know, this episode is set at Christmastime and the Winter Solstice,” Aguirre-Sacasa explains. “There is a great tradition, obviously, of the Three Wise Men and the Epiphany. So that might be what’s coming down the pike for Sabrina and the Spellmans.”
He continued, teasing what we’re referring to as Season 2, “I loved the first half of the first season. I think the second half is even more ambitious. It’s a little sexier, it’s a little scarier. I’m just really excited for people to see it. Lots of romance, lots of horror. It’s really good. I’m really excited about it.”
Season 2 will arrive on April 5, 2019.
