A chilling adventure was had by all in New York City on Wednesday night.
The cast of Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina descended on The Roxy hotel in downtown Manhattan for a special screening of the premiere of season two hosted by Entertainment Weekly. Kiernan Shipka who plays Sabrina Spellman on the show, Ross Lynch (Harvey Kinkle), Michelle Gomez (Madam Satan), Jaz Sinclair (Ros Walker) and Gavin Leatherwood (Nicholas Scratch) were all in attendance, participating in a Q&A session with EW’s Ruth Kinane about what magical (and chilling) adventures are in store for their characters in the coming episodes.
All the cast members agreed that Part 2 showcases an even darker side to the series, with Shipka adding that “Sabrina pushes the boundaries pretty far.” Leatherwood chimed in to share that we would learn more about his character — warlock Nicholas Scratch — this season, his childhood and intentions towards Sabrina, while Shipka weighed in on the Sabrina-Harvey-Nick love triangle (or “a pentagon [sic] if we include Ros too”), suggesting that Sabrina and Nick are indeed better suited — this season anyway.
When it comes to episodes to watch out for, Sinclair pointed to episode 4 as her favorite, teasing that it would be somewhat “sexy,” while the penultimate episode is the one Shipka is most excited for fans to see as it’s “something very different” for her character, adding jokingly, “it’s the one when everyone dies.” Also, look out for Sabrina and Nick spending lots of time in the high priest’s office and not much studying going on at the academy. “Sounds like my high school experience,” quipped Leatherwood.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina part 2 drops on Netflix on Friday, April 5.
