Netflix Orders 16 Additional Episodes of 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina'

Netflix has today ordered a new season of 16 episodes for the original drama series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina - which will be split into two halves and be billed as Parts 3 and 4. Production on the new episodes will begin in 2019 for a debut later in the year. 

The renewal comes just days after the December 14 launch of the first season holiday special. The streaming service previously revealed that the remaining nine episodes of Part 2 will debut on Friday, April 5.

The drama stars Kiernan Shipka, Ross Lynch, Lucy Davis, Chance Perdomo, Michelle Gomez, Jaz Sinclair, Tati Gabrielle, Adeline Rudolph, Richard Coyle and Miranda Otto.

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa developed the drama based on the Archie Comics characters. He executive produces with Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Jon Goldwater and Lee Toland Krieger. Warner Bros. Television and Berlanti Productions produce.

"Praise Satan! I'm so grateful to my partners at Warner Bros., Netflix, Berlanti Television and Archie Productions for supporting this darker vision of the world's most famous teen witch," said Aguirre-Sacasa. "And I'm thrilled to be continuing to tell Sabrina's chilling adventures with our incredible cast and crew, led by the unstoppable Kiernan Shipka."
