Our review of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 3 starring Kiernan Shipka, Ross Lynch and Lucy Davis. Though she defeated her father Lucifer, the Dark Lord remains trapped within the human prison. Sabrina can’t live with herself, knowing that Nick made the ultimate sacrifice and is suffering, burning in Hell under Madam Satan’s watchful eye. So with an assist from her mortal friends, “The Fright Club” (consisting of Harvey, Rosalind, and Theo), Sabrina makes it her mission to free him from eternal damnation and bring him back into her arms. However, the Dark Lord’s unseating has sent shockwaves through the realms—and, with no on the throne, Sabrina must assume the title of “Queen” to defend it against a challenger, the handsome Prince of Hell Caliban. Meanwhile, in Greendale, a mysterious carnival rolls into town, bringing with it a threat to the Spellmans and the coven: A tribe of pagans looking to resurrect an ancient evil.

We also talk with stunt performer Zandara Kennedy! Zandara is the stunt coordinator and leader of the stunt team for the CW series Nancy Drew! She talks to us all about the work that goes into choreographing, creating and executing stunts for film and television productions. Zandara Kennedy is a force to be reckoned with. When Zandara discovered stunt work was a profession, she worked diligently to become a stunt performer, honing her skills in a multitude of disciplines that would help her achieve this goal. As a stunt performer, Zandara has worked on high profile films such as MONSTER TRUCKS, DEADPOOL 2 and DARK PHOENIX. Her t.v. credits include “Arrow”, “The Flash”, “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” and “A Series of Unfortunate Events”, amongst others. Most recently, she was brought on to head up the stunt department as coordinator on The CW’s hit new show “Nancy Drew”, which premiered October 9, 2019.
