Netflix teases Christmas specials with 'Sabrina,' Kurt Russell in new trailer

Netflix teases Christmas specials with 'Sabrina,' Kurt Russell in new trailer

The streaming service debuted "Chilling Adventures" last month, just in time for Halloween, with Kiernan Shipka in the titular role of Sabrina Spellman. It'll centre on the Church Of Night's Winter Solstice celebrations, which surely will be a bloody, dramatic feast. But I'm excited to add another bewitching holiday special to my annual advent calendar. Presumably, it's not more cannibalism - the Feast of Feasts has that covered - but it could be some other ritual such as staying up through the night, using the long night to work powerful spells, or even using it as the gift-giving time instead of Christmas, since the Church of Night nearly certainly has some issues with the religious connotations of such a holiday. On the longest night of the year, families gather around the Yule fire to sing pagan carols and tell ghost stories. It is also a time for guests to drop by, sometimes uninvited.

Considering what we know about Sabrina's mother in the comics, it'll be interesting to see whether the series decides to continue that line or make more deviations from the source material.

On Monday morning, Aguirre-Sacasa confirmed news of the Sabrina Christmas special (although he didn't address any potential Riverdale crossovers).

A third yelled: 'I STILL CAN'T BELIEVE WE'RE GETTING A SABRINA CHRISTMAS SPECIAL! "I love this episode of #CAOS!" In the meanwhile, Netflix has announced a winter holiday special episode. That's a shame considering how well the first season (or Part as Netflix calls it) has gone over, especially with that cliffhanger ending. Now that's a holiday miracle.

Netflix will release the special along with a slew of other holiday content, bundled under the campaign "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Netflix".
