A showrunner on the programme, which has two seasons split into four parts, has opened up to TVLine about the fourth part being the final instalment in the franchise. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa told the publication: "Working on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has been an incredible honour 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 dream of a show."

He continued: "I'm also 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."
