Sabrina Will Likely Return To Riverdale In The Future, Teases Star

Kiernan Shipka is teasing the return of Sabrina Spellman in future Riverdale episodes, following the character’s appearance in the Riverdale season 6 crossover with her series. Shipka originally portrayed the iconic teenage witch in Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, developed by Riverdale showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. While the series featured an episode in which Sabrina travels to her neighboring town, Aguirre-Sacasa and fans alike have been anticipating a proper Riverdale/Sabrina crossover for some time now. Its cancellation in 2020 left fans of both shows with little hope, but the most recent season of the CW hit has found a way to introduce Sabrina into its story, and the initial news surrounding her arrival caused much excitement.

Riverdale season 6 premiered in November with a five-episode event that brought fans to Rivervale, a much darker version of the small town they have come to know. The show began to explore the possibility of supernatural elements early on, but never made them real until Cheryl Blossom learned about her family’s history with magic at the end of last season. Riverdale‘s sudden shift in genre, particularly amidst this five-episode event, allowed Kiernan Shipka to reprise her role in a crossover that finally came to fruition; and fans are already eager for more.

Shipka recently spoke to CBR about her future in Riverdale, saying that she would love to return. The actress also discussed Sabrina’s connection with Cheryl and how her presence moving forward would most likely be linked to their practice of witchcraft. However, Shipka added that she would like to see her character develop relationships with more Riverdale characters. Read Shipka’s quote when asked about Sabrina coming back to Riverdale below:

Yeah, I think it’s open. I think the odds are good. I would love to! I love Sabrina. I loved playing her and I think that, you know, up next is probably Riverdale for her.

Sabrina Spellman’s official entrance into Riverdale has been long-awaited, though given how the Netflix series ended, fans have been wondering what it means for the character. Its finale concluded with her death, but Shipka revealed that she never saw it as final. What’s more, showrunner Aguirre-Sacasa alluded to Riverdale seeing more of Sabrina as well. With her family and friends still very much alive, fans are hoping for more crossovers to answer questions surrounding Sabrina’s resurrection, and to see her reunite with characters from the original Chilling Adventures of Sabrina series.

Fans of Sabrina have been vocal in expressing their disappointment towards the show’s cancellation, with many calling upon other networks or streaming services to bring it back. With the overwhelming amount of interest her Riverdale debut generated, now might be the ideal time to bring the cast of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina together again for one big crossover event. Since the events taking place in the show’s alternate reality will have an impact on Riverdale overall, it remains uncertain when and how Sabrina Spellman will return again. Viewers can expect to find out soon enough though, as Riverdale season 6 is still airing.
