Netflix has announced it's cancelling Chilling Adventures of Sabrina after season four, and fans have started a petition in response.
If you're a huge fan of Kiernan Shipka in the Sabrina The Teenage Witch spin-off, you'll be sad to hear the streaming service will not be renewing the TV show after series four. According to Netflix, the last episodes will see "The Eldritch Terrors descend upon Greendale", adding:
"The coven must fight each terrifying threat one-by-one (The Weird, The Returned, The Darkness to name a few), all leading up to… The Void, which is the End of All Things. As the witches wage war, with the help of The Fright Club, Nick begins to slowly earn his way back into Sabrina's heart, but will it be too late?"
Discussing the popular show's cancellation, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa said:
"Working on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has been an incredible honour from day one. The cast, beginning with Kiernan as everyone's favourite teen witch, has been an absolute joy. I am beyond thankful to the crew, writers, editors, assistants, and everyone for pouring so much love into this dark dream of a show.
"I'm also grateful to our partners at Netflix, Warner Bros., Berlanti Television and Archie Comics for letting us tell the story we wanted to tell, the way we wanted to tell it. We can't wait for everyone to see part four."
Fans have since set up a petition to stop the cancellation going ahead, set up by a fan named Dominic Barrett, who explained: "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is an extremely popular show on the streaming service, Netflix. On July 8th, 2020 it was announced that the show would be ending after it's 4th season. We are petitioning to bring this back after it's unfair cancellation and ask that it be renewed for a 5th season.
"The show is extremely loved by fans and we hope this petition can bring the show back from the dead." Currently, Netflix hasn't responded to the petition, but here's to hoping for fans' sakes that their pleas are heard.
