Riverdale casts Kiernan Shipka’s Sabrina for season 6 crossover episode

Sabrina Spellman is back from the dead (once more). On Thursday, Warner Bros. Television announced that Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’s Kiernan Shipka will reprise the function of the teenage witch in the upcoming Riverdale season 6.

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina sequence was originally designed for The CW by Riverdale creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who also writes the CAOS comics. However, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was eventually moved to Netflix, and fans in no way received to see any crossovers in between the two Archie Comics series. Aguirre-Sacasa threw in a amount of Easter eggs and references in CAOS for Riverdale enthusiasts to appreciate, but it just wasn’t the identical as looking at the Fright Club fulfill up with the Vixens, Pink Circle, Gargoyle Gang, or no matter what name our most loved Riverdale young children ended up going by at the time.

In accordance to Aguirre-Sacasa, there was finally intended to be a crossover concerning the two sequence in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’s fifth year. The storyline, which will be comprehensive in the new CAOS comics, would have adopted a witch war that seemingly pits people from the two reveals versus just one a further. Nonetheless, right after Netflix opted to conclusion Chilling Adventures of Sabrina right after the fourth time, the expected crossover fell as a result of.

And while it is unlikely that Shipka’s appearance in Riverdale’s sixth season will be the complete-scale witch war Aguirre-Sacasa at first imagined — except if a great deal far more casting information is to appear — it is continue to an extremely fascinating enhancement for admirers of the Incredibly hot Archie Cinematic Universe. At the identical time, it is also a a little bit confusing one, viewing as Chilling Advntures of Sabrina ended with both of those Sabrina Spellman and her doppelgänger Sabrina Morningstar deceased after sacrificing by themselves to conserve the universe. But loss of life has often been rather meaningless in equally Riverdale and Sabrina, so we’re generally just curious to see what wild clarification they come up with to convey ‘Brina back from heaven.
