As we prepare for Riverdale season 6, we have to prepare ourselves accordingly for an appearance from Sabrina Spellman!
This week, the news was finally confirmed that Kiernan Shipka will reprise her Chilling Adventures from Sabrina for the flagship CW show. This is a move that has been in the works for a long time now and absolutely, it is a joyous occasion to know that it’s going to be happening. Initial reports about the crossover came out in an interview on The Dipp Wednesday night featuring writer Evan Kyle. Meanwhile, show boss Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa had the following to say on the matter to Entertainment Weekly today:
“We’ve been talking about having Sabrina visit Riverdale since season 1, so it’s thrilling that this is finally happening, as part of our ‘Rivervale’ special event … It’s also perfect that she shows up to help Cheryl Blossom during her hour of greatest need. Everyone on set lost their minds — I think fans will, too. It’s really fun and special.”
It goes without saying that this appearance is going to be enormous, since it brings more magic into the Riverdale world and also connects the two shows in a way that they were always meant to. Remember that originally, there were plans for Sabrina the series to be on The CW — that is, prior to Netflix showing up with a two-season order straight out of the gate. Eventually there was another spin-off to Riverdale at the network home in Katy Keene, and those two shows were able to mix together at least to some extent. Unfortunately, Katy Keene did not get the attention of either the flagship show or Sabrina and ended up being canceled.
