Sabrina is back. Since January 24th you can find her on Netflix in streaming. Finally, we take our time to watch the new series. And it’s amazing!
I always had great expectations for Sabrina. I still remember the ’90’s series, I watched when I was young. But the new one is darker and creepy. I really love it more and more.
What happened in the previews season.
If you didn’t watch the season 2 please skip this intro. It could be full of spoiler.
Sabrina is half-witch and half-human. She lives with her aunties, Hilda and Zelda Spellman, next to the small family graveyard in Greendale. The day of her 16th birthday she needs to keep a decision about her life. Be a witch of the Church of Night or be a common teenager. Even though Sabrina won’t choose. She wants to be both. and at the and of the first season she reaches her task to be as a witch as a human.
But invisible wires are moved by mysterious hands. Father Blackwood is not happy Sabrina is studying in the Academy and Mary Wardwell, her human teacher that we’ll found out be Lilith in disguise, really want Sabrina to be a witch.
Plus another hand is looking for Sabrina’s soul. The Dark Lord ones, Satan himself. The reason why is the Dark Lord is Sabrina’s father and he wants to make her his wife and his queen. Thanks to Lilith, Sabrina defeat the Devil sacrificing her love: Nicholas Scratch. Satan’s soul is trapped in the boy’s body and dragged to hell by Lilith.
Season 3: Plot
Sabrina’s nights are full of nightmares. She always thinks about Nick, trapped in hell with Satan in his body. She knows he is in danger and he is suffering a lot. So, she is ready to descend to hell to save him. Her friends Roz, Harvey and Theo won’t let her alone on this trip.
Even so, they need to defeat the new queen Lilith. But Lilith herself has some problems to avoids. Her dominion is not approved by hell’s princes.
So, Lilith and Sabrina need to join their forces and work together once again.
In the meantime, in Greendale, Old Goods are coming back to claim their dominion and Ancient Ones lies in darkness. After all, that is not dead which can eternal lie.
Sabrina is a dark and horror TV show even if is a teen show. Sabrina is a real witch, ones of those dark and evil. The kind of witches Christians had been afraid of in the Middle Age. These witches are Satan’s devote. These elements are very important to let this TV show as it has.
As time goes by, it’s more har to Sabrina lives a double life. Been a teen and a witch is very hard right now because of this ways are two different paths. Sabrina’s character shows a grown-up in this season, she has more responsibilities. Plus, she knows she is very powerful and she is not afraid of that.
Kiernan Shipka plays greatly her role. Miranda Otto is an amazing aunt Zelda. She is fierce and harsh. As the new Academy principal, she has to afford a lot of trouble. She is the first woman in this charge, so her role is very important.
Michelle Gomez has the hardest part, she had to play two opposite character at the same time. Miss Wardwell is a conscientious and shy woman, on the other hand, Lilith is the powerful and sensual queen of hell.
In this season ambient is darker and more apocalyptic. We can see a trip to hell. You can see the great work of direction, scenography and photography. As I’m a horror lover, I really appreciate the infernal circles and the place of demons and devils.
They are amazing!
The arrival of the Old Gods and their follower make everything darker and creepier. When we talk about the Old Gods we are talking about every deity from the ancient cult, like Greek one, Celtic ones and so on… As this is a horror show we can see the most horrific part of their cult and tradition, like blood ritual and similar. By the way, this comparison from pagan and satanic witches is very interesting. We have a comparison of their powers. The first ones come from nature and the second ones by a fallen angel.
Then, we can’t forget to remember we can hear again about Eldritch’s Horror, but still, we can’t really see in this season. Even so, it seems they will be the focus of the 4th season. Well, we hope so.
As I said, I love horrors, so I really loved this season. And of course, the entire TV show. If you don’t love this kind of show or easy get frightened you should pass. If you like horror, mysticism, magic, demons and devil and, of course, you love Lovecraft we strictly recommend this show.
