Take a look: ‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ season 4 brings back Hilda
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina may be coming to an end, but they are bringing back the scariest witches in Greendale, Aunt Hilda & Zelda. Or rather, the original version from the 1990s sitcom. These witches may come from the original Sabrina the Teenage Witch series but they’re back for the final season of the Chilling adaptation.
Beth Broderick & Caroline Rhea are featured as Hilda & Zelda, Lucy Davis & Miranda Otto’s characters in The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Luckily the trailer’s Hilda (Broderick) and Zelda (Rhea) are most likely from another dimension and are not here to stay.
The teenage drama has entered a strange reality after season 3 with Sabrina torn between two worlds and her aunts from an alternate dimension appearing. We have the full rundown of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina below.
In The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) struggles throughout the series about her identity as an evil witch or a regular teenager with boy problems.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 3 shows Sabrina trying her best to balance the demon world with her high school reality. Sabrina is a cheerleader and has a possible “endgame” relationship with Nick (Gavin Leatherwood) so she definitely doesn’t want to blow it.
In the season 3 finale, Sabrina makes a picture-perfect doppelganger so she can live in both worlds. Sabrina becomes Queen of Hell and top cheerleader for Baxter High School, but with every spell comes great consequences. At the last minute of season 3 Ambrose Spellman (Chance Perdomo) warns Sabrina that this brilliant idea of hers won’t end well.
Netflix has just released their final trailer for The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 4 and everything is different. The series has brought back two characters from the 1996 ABC series Sabrina the Teenage Witch. The original sitcom was less dark & more whimsical than Chilling Adventures, with Screenrant comparing the sitcom to the 1960s classic show Bewitched.
The Netflix trailer shows Beth Broderick as Zelda and Caroline Rhea as Hilda in their roles as Sabrina Spellman’s aunts. Actresses Broderick & Rhea were Sabrina’s aunts in the 1990s show Sabrina the Teenage Witch and not in The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, leading us to ask, where did they come from in-universe?
The teaser trailer shows Sabrina standing in front of two women claiming to be her aunts Hilda & Zelda. Sabrina also sees Father Blackwood (Richard Coyle) as the director of a TV set they are standing in. Sabrina realizes that Beth Broderick and Caroline Rhea are not her actual aunts but they are all actors in Blackwood’s TV show and that Greendale is definitely far away.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina began with eight episodes featuring a “dark baptism” and a birthday celebration, the central plot of season 1. Season 4 will also present the Eldritch Terrors, ancient monsters who sow death and total destruction. Unfortunately for the Eldritch Terrors, Sabrina has other plans in mind.
A final goodbye
Riverdale and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’s playwright Roberto Aguiree-Sacasa told The Hollywood Reporter: “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 show”.
“I’m also so 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” stated Roberto Aguiree-Sacasa.
Netflix will release the final season of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina on New Year’s Eve, December 31st. Let us know in the comments if you’ll be watching.
