Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 2 has headed to Netflix and is releasing on Friday, April 5, 2019, and fans can watch the new episodes starting at 12:01 a.m. PT!
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 2 has come to Netflix very soon. The new episodes of the hit Netflix original series have been released at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time on Friday, April 5.
There are nine new episodes of the series coming to the streaming service, and we know there will be plenty of Netflix staying up to watch those new episodes.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 2 picks up after the events of the Christmas special, “A Midwinter’s Tale,” with Sabrina trying to find her place in two different worlds. She’s signed her name in the Book of the Beast, but there’s something unsettled within her, or so it seems from the trailer. Will she continue to walk the Path of Night? Will she choose the Path of Light? Or, will she try to find a balance of both worlds?
We’ll see that and more in Part 2!
What all we have in stock for the new season?
There’s some campy fun to be had in Part 2, which finally dives into the fanciful occult realm Sabrina only dipped her toes into last season. Now that our young half-witch, half-mortal has signed her name in the Book of the Beast, she’s ready to embrace her studies at the Academy of Unseen Arts, a magical boarding school with rich traditions, secret societies, and an open affinity for Red Riding Hood cosplay. The show is better when it’s playing in this peculiar sandbox. Part 1 made a messy attempt to straddle the human world and the witch world without ever successfully defining right and wrong in either plane. By sending Sabrina down a darker path, the show has ironically found a degree of moral clarity, ditching those abstract ideas of good and evil in favor of the power dynamics between men and women in the magical realm. (Shocker: The dark side is hellishly sexist.) The new episodes find Sabrina pushing back against the Academy’s regressive gender politics and defying Father Blackwood (Richard Coyle), the misogynistic dean. Blackwood, who spent the first part of the season leering ominously, is bumped up to flat-out villain this year, and he’s got the full back tattoo to prove it.
Unfortunately, Sabrina remains as self-righteous as ever, and her feminism often gets boiled down to a kind of “hashtag resist” rallying cry. She’ll bend over backwards to convince herself that what she most wants to do is also what’s morally right; when she says “equal rights for students of all genders,” she often just means “more rights for me, Sabrina Spellman.” The show doesn’t seem aware of the distinction. For a series that wants to be about fighting the patriarchy — and it does, at times, successfully manage to replicate the crushing feeling of going up against a game that’s been rigged in men’s favor for centuries — Sabrina is far too light on healthy relationships between women, especially adult women. Too much magic in Part 2 is rooted in women’s jealousy, insecurity, and distrust for one another. It’s as if the show started with the premise that Real Housewives spats would be funnier if the ladies had voodoo dolls and worked backward from there.
There is a way to pit female characters against each other in order to expose women who support the patriarchy for their own gain, but Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is not telling that story. It comes closest with Madame Satan, who begins to question what she’s really getting out of her relationship with the devil right as she meets the bumbling mortal fiancé (Alexis Denisof, in his element) of the mousy teacher whose body she now inhabits. But Madame Satan’s growing discontent is spurred by men; the show uses men, not other women, to inspire feminism. Sabrina’s greatest ally in her fight is her warlock crush, Nick Scratch (Gavin Leatherwood), whose bad-boy edge has now been sanded down to the point of blandness. His suspiciously dreamy “woke boy” rebranding is enough to make Harvey (Ross Lynch) seem like the wild card in this love triangle, which becomes a love quadrangle early in Part 2 because why not?
