“Suzie, Do You Copy?”
“The Mall Rats”
“The Case of the Missing Lifeguard”

Netflix Unleashes Premiere Date & Teaser Trailer for ‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 2’

Between its October premiere, its upcoming holiday special, and the breaking announcement of a second season premiere just months away, Netflix must be out to prove there can’t be too much of a good thing when it comes to Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. The streaming giant just released a rockin’ new trailer for Season Two of the hit series starring Kiernan Shipka, and it’s hitting the web earlier than you may think!

Season Two of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will premiere on April 5th, 2019. Similar to the clever titling of Stranger Things 2, the word “season” isn’t anywhere to be found in the new trailer. This time around, it’s called Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 2. In addition to borrowing this edgy title format (and “borrowing” The Satanic Temple’s copyrighted statue of Baphomet), the trailer also rocks The Runaways’ “Cherry Bomb”… a song previously featured in famous scenes from Dazed and Confused, Lollipop Chainsaw, Warehouse 13, and Guardians of the Galaxy. Like I said, Netflix must be out to prove there can’t be too much of a good thing! Either this, or that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery… read more read more
