So, I've obtained second season (some call it second part of season 1) of `Chilling Adventures of Sabrina`. When I am trying to download metadata for it (actors, ep descriptions and so on) it fails to do so because Emby thinks its season 3 despite me clearly stating it is season 2.
You might ask how do I know it? I know it because I manually set it to season 2, however it is automatically fetches wrong release date. Second season came out in 2019 but it insists it came 24 January 2020. I tried correcting `release date` and `year` fields manually both for season as the whole and specific episode, it is still fails to download metadata (such as episode description, name, actors). This is what I see when I replace metadata of the season: correctly deduced season number and incorrectly deduced release date; and this is what I get when looking at metadata of an episode: correctly deduced season/episode number and episode name from the future, episode also has same release date as the season so I didn't include it.
Although IMDB identifies the second batch of episodes as Season 2, Netflix released them as Part 2 of Season 1. Accordingly, TVDB considers them to be a continuation of Season 1. If you number the episodes of Part 2 as S01E12 to S01E20, Emby will scrape the correct metadata from TVDB for the episodes.Go to the full post
