Michelle Gomez has opened up about her sadness following the cancelation of Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, as the final season drops on the streaming service.
The actress has thrilled fans over the past few years as they watched her character Madam Satan battle it out with Kiernan Shipka’s Sabrina.
Michelle revealed she had been hoping to keep going in the role for much longer before the pandemic led Netflix to pull the plug on the popular reboot series.
Speaking exclusively to Metro.co.uk, the 54-year-old explained: ‘It’s sad to see it end. I’m excited for the fans to see season four but it’s a sad time. We had a really good run and considering Netflix’s business model typically sees shows run for two seasons so we did really well. We had a good run.’
The Flight Attendant star continued: ‘I think if the pandemic hadn’t come along and shut the world down, you know, we probably would have gone on again. But it’s it takes 10 months to make Sabrina, 10 months in Vancouver.
‘It’s a big machine to crank back up again so I think they probably just cut their losses at that point.’
The Doctor Who star explained she was sad not to say a proper goodbye to her cast mates when season four wrapped up production in early 2020.
She explained: ‘When we were leaving Canada and we were saying goodbye to one another in February, we had no idea that we were saying goodbye for good. We had no idea.
‘I think all of us feel like if you know something’s coming to an end then you can mentally prepare for that. You can say your goodbyes and you can go through that process. Right. But this was just like they ripped off the band-aid.’
The Mary Wardwell actress continued: ‘We literally left all our stuff there. We had apartments there and everything. Yeah, getting the news about it being canceled was sad.’
However the star insisted the cast and crew would find a way to say goodbye to fans and celebrate the show’s run properly when the pandemic is over.
Michelle stated: ‘We got on well as a cast and we made some great friendships so I’m sure we’ll keep in touch. When the time is right I’m sure we’ll end up doing some conventions with fans or something like that.’
The show’s fourth season takes viewers back to the fictional town of Greendale after the last season revealed there were two Sabrina’s out and about in the realms.
A plot point that unsurprisingly has huge repercussions for the final few episodes as there is now a Sabrina that’s taken up the mantle of Queen of Hell, while the other leading an adolescent life in the human world.
All the while, neither her aunts nor her father Lucifer Morningstar (Luke Cook), aka the Dark Lord, are any the wiser. What could possibly go wrong?
The finale season of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is out on Netflix.
