Why Prudence and Ambrose deserve a Spin-Off

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina may be coming to an end, but the adventure shouldn't end for two of its characters.

The final season of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (also called CAOS) is here, which means we're seeing Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka), her mortal friends, her magical family, and some of the other witches and warlocks we've met along the way for the last time.

However, while this may be the end of Sabrina's story, it shouldn't be the end for two characters who still have so much to show. Prudence Blackwood (Tati Gabriele) and Ambrose Spellman (Chance Perdomo) became two of the most stand-out characters in the series from season one and have been fan favorites from the start. Either one (or both) would do well for a spin-off.

As the Weird Sisters' de facto leader, Prudence is a nuanced character who goes from antagonist to anti-heroine over the course of the series. Ambrose is Sabrina's 'cousin' who has been under house arrest for 75 years and is finally getting a taste of freedom. Their growth and understanding for one another, mostly because they both hate Prudence's dad, Father Blackwood, leads to a relationship that unfortunately comes to an end in part 3. Not only do I hope both of these characters rekindle that romance, but I think their relationship could lead to a series of its own. Both characters have grown immensely throughout the four parts of CAOS and deserve to step into the spotlight.

Even solo, I think a series on Ambrose's life before his house arrest or Prudence's life with her siblings could make an interesting series with a Black warlock or witch as a protagonist, something we don't get to see often.

The final eight episodes of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will arrive on Netflix later this year.
