CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Fans of both The CW’s “Riverdale” and Netflix’s “Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina” can rejoice as the two shows are finally coming together for a big crossover episode.
Kiernan Shipka’s Sabrina confirmed the news that she will be on Season 6 of Riverdale with an Instagram post.
Officials with the show Riverdale say there have been talks of having Sabrina visit the show since Season 1, so this crossover episode is long overdue.
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who created “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” after launching “Riverdale” on The CW, says he originally planned to air “Sabrina” on The CW, but given its dark material, it was decided to move the show to Netflix.
Aguirre-Sacasa says since both shows take place in the same universe, the original plan was to have Season 3 of “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” bring in characters from “Riverdale” and make the crossover explicit.
Unfortunately, Aguirre-Sacasa says Netflix cancelled “Sabrina” before they ever got the chance.
The CW has not yet set a date for the crossover episode, but fans can expect a bit of a wait considering Season 5 finale of “Riverdale” aired just on October 6th.
