It was a hellish evening in Vancouver on January 18, with the cast and crew of Netflix’s popular series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina convening with the local film industry, government, and media to celebrate the show’s third season, which hit the streaming service on Friday, January 24.

Co-hosted by Tourism Vancouver and Netflix, and held at Parq Vancouver, the spooky soirée featured Chilling Adventures of Sabrina themed food, cocktails, and décor, with the show’s spunky soundtrack setting the mood. Guests mixed and mingled with cast members, including Gavin Leatherwood (Nicholas Scratch), Miranda Otto (Aunt Zelda), Lucy Davis (Aunt Hilda), Lachlan Watson (Theo) and others. The event celebrated not only the show’s third season premiere but also its connection to Vancouver with all three seasons – as well as the fourth, currently in production – filmed in and around the city.

During the first two seasons, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina created 372 full-time cast and crew jobs, and 3,000 background positions – collectively amounting to $90 million in wages for BC residents. The show utilized 1,800 vendors across BC, with a total spend of $49 million per season.

The premiere party audience was treated to an advance screening of Part 3, episode 1, after which the cast took the stage for a moderated panel about the show’s success, secrets of Part 3, and their positive experiences filming in Vancouver (spoiler alert: they adore eating at Vancouver’s hottest restaurants, including Acorn, MeeT, and Guilt & Co.!).
