As announced during a panel at Argentina Comic-Con at the Centro Costa Salguero in Buenos Aires on Saturday (December 7), season three of the beloved Netflix series is set to debut on the streaming-service platform on January 24. The announcement was made in tandem with a spooky, ominous visual teaser that depicts Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka) appearing from the fog in her iconic red hooded coat.
With the reveal also came the description for the upcoming season, which has been described as follows:
“Part Three finds Sabrina reeling from the harrowing events of Part Two. Though she defeated her father Lucifer, the Dark Lord remains trapped within the human prison of her beloved boyfriend, Nicholas Scratch. Sabrina can’t live with herself, knowing that Nick made the ultimate sacrifice and is suffering, burning in Hell under Madam Satan’s watchful eye. So with an assist from her mortal friends, “The Fright Club” (consisting of Harvey, Rosalind, and Theo), Sabrina makes it her mission to free him from eternal damnation and bring him back into her arms. However, the Dark Lord’s unseating has sent shockwaves through the realms—and, with no one on the throne, Sabrina must assume the title of “Queen” to defend it against a challenger, the handsome Prince of Hell Caliban. Meanwhile, in Greendale, a mysterious carnival rolls into town, bringing with it a threat to the Spellmans and the coven: A tribe of pagans looking to resurrect an ancient evil…”
Although the second season, which premiered on April 5, concluded with Sabrina and her gang successfully capturing Lucifer in Nick’s body before banishing him to Hell, it’s clear Part 3 proves it’s only just the beginning of another season of perils for the teenage witch.
