After premiering on the streamer in October of 2018 and returning for a second season, Netflix had quickly picked up the series, a dark reimagining of the Archie Comics of the same name that also acts as a sort of prequel to Sabrina the Teenage Witch, for an additional two seasons, each consisting of eight episodes. That means that fans can expect a fourth season sometime in the future.0comments
