‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ came to an end on Netflix, but the character exists in the ‘Archie’ comics and seeing her on the CW series was always a wish on the part of fans.
Although Sabrina Spellman and the protagonists of Riverdale coexist in the Archie Comic universes, the fact that the famous witch Kiernan Shipka played in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was a character in a Netflix series and that the story of Archie and company was a CW title complicated the more than justified ‘crossover’. As much as both had been developed by the same ‘showrunner’: Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
However, the wishes of many have now come true, since the participation of Shipka has been confirmed, again in the skin of Sabrina, in season 6 of Riverdale that the American chain CW will premiere next November and that in Spain we will see from the hand of Movistar +.
It is true that being Chilling Adventures of Sabrina already finalized on Netflix cannot be considered a ‘crossover’ with all the letters, but the truth is that it is also a key fact so that the incorporation of Shipka to the CW series can take place.
As has been advanced, Sabrina will arrive in Riverdale in the fourth episode of the sixth season, which is titled ‘The Witching Hour(s)’ (6×04), so that it will be one of the five chapters that are part of the super special event with which the new installment of the series will debut on November 16 and the next day on Movistar +.
