“The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” Review

There is no rest for the wicked: the Netflix original series The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is back again! The third season is out, and it is insane. Discretion is advised. 

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is a remake of the classic sitcom Sabrina: The Teenage Witch. Instead of a light-hearted family friendly show, CAOS is a dark, satanic, bloodbath of a show. It’s good, I promise. 

The third season kicks off with a mission to Hell, like, actual Hell. Sabrina and her (mortal) friends, such as Ross Lynch, venture to the underworld to save her boyfriend. Once she gets there, she signs herself up for a job that she may not be able to finish. This job leaves her questioning her choices of whether to work for her own interest or for the interests of those around her. It is an amazingly horrific journey that takes eight long episodes to finish. 

In my opinion, the third season has been the best season. It was insanely well-written, except for some cheesy romantic high school gibberish, and the plot was well-thought through. Usually by the third season with shows like this (Riverdale), the plot starts to become trash. Fortunately, this wasn’t the case with Sabrina. 

The student body agrees with my claim that the third season has been the best season. Senior Ellieblue Gurkin said, “I liked the third season more than the first because of its focus on Hell and Caliban (The Prince of Hell), of course.” 

There are some things that I still cannot comprehend about the show. I still have no idea why half of the coven has a British accent. That has never been explained, and this coven has been in America for centuries. I don’t understand how Sabrina is still going to mortal high school and Satan high school, she just does. Lastly, and most importantly, I don’t understand why they won’t allow Salem the cat the right to speak. He just meows and Sabrina somehow understands him. 

All in all, I think the third season is a great way to spend your Saturday afternoon, night, and early morning. I haven’t slept in so long because of this show. It may be helpful to watch the second season before the third, but it is always daring to just jump right in. I strongly recommend it, especially if you like being disgusted, scared, or are a Ross Lynch fan.
