Archie Comics series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has been cancelled by American streaming platform Netflix.
Speaking about the decision, showrunner Roberto Aguirre Sacasa said: “Working on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has been an incredible honor from Day One.
“The cast, beginning with Kiernan as everyone’s favorite 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.”
The executive, who is also the showrunner on sister Archie Comics series Riverdale, continued: “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.”
He added to Deadline: “We can’t wait for everyone to see Part Four.”
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will be concluding with its final outing, known as Part Four.
Sadly, the cancellation comes not long after fellow Riverdale spin-off series Kate Keene was axed by The CW after one season.
The news of this cancellation comes after Netflix’s popular series Ozark was also revealed to be ending with season four – albeit a super-sized one split into two parts with 14 episodes rather than just the regular 14 instalments.
For now, it’s not clear whether any of the characters from Chilling Adventures of Sabrina could move into Riverdale given they exist within the same universe.
In the world of Archie Comics, there are neighbouring towns with Riverdale mentioned in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
There were even plans previously for the teenage witch to turn up in Riverdale but these plans were later shelved.
