'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina': Newly announced holiday special to show how witches celebrate Christmas
Series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa took to Twitter Monday, revealing the holiday installment titled 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter's Tale,' will drop December 14
If you thought Halloween was long over and the spirit of Christmas has nothing spooky in store, then you might have to think again. 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' is back with a chilling holiday special titled 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale.' There's a lot of "chilling" there. Series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa took to Twitter Monday, revealing Sabrina’s holiday installment will drop on Friday, December 14.
"Praise Satan! I mean, Praise Santa!" he wittily captioned his tweet and went on to announce the special and how much he loves the new upcoming episode. The special will feature the entire cast. Sabrina Spellman (played by Kiernan Shipka) boasted her new platinum blonde look while wearing her white Dark Baptism dress.
The official synopsis of the upcoming episode gives an insight into how witches celebrate Christmas, in fact, it's just a Winter Solstice celebration for Sabrina and her coven.
"The Church of Night, like all covens, celebrates the Winter Solstice — the longest night of the year — when families gather together around the Yule Fire to sing pagan carols, tell ghost stories and huddle against the supernatural creatures that come out to cause mischief. Since the Winter Solstice is when the veil between this world and the next is at its thinnest, it’s the perfect time to conduct a séance — which Sabrina convenes, to try and contact her mother. But the holidays are also a time for guests and visitors — both welcome and unwelcome — and you never know what might come down the chimney."
Sabrina's first season premiered on Netflix October 26 and the second season does not yet have a release date. But this holiday special comes after season 1. Other Netflix originals coming this season include a sequel to last year’s 'A Christmas Prince', 'Nailed It!', and the 'Christmas Chronicles' starring Kurt Russell as Santa. 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale' premieres December 14 and we can't wait to feel the chills again.
