A month ago I grabbed some apple cider to ferment on a whim. I accidentally grabbed one with Potassium Sorbate, which I didn't notice until after a week the gravity was still 1.052 using Belle saison yeast. I figured it was a lost cause but left it in the carboy. I checked the gravity today and it was 1.022 and actually tasted pretty good. Not sure if I should pitch more yeast to finish the job or wait it out and see what happens.

It will be fine. When gravity hits about 1.010 in another few days, consider adding gelatin to knock the yeast out of there and add more sorbate, unless you like a bone dry wine-like beverage.
