Now that Chlling Adventures of Sabrina is a very important thing (mark October 26th on your calendars!), we have all been told multiple times not to expect any crossovers between the new series and its sister show Riverdale. Although, long before Netflix stepped in to develop Sabrina as its own entity, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa had plans to bring everyone’s favorite teenage witch the dramatic town of Riverdale…as a villain!
Thankfully, the popular CW noir-drama chose to stay true to its roots and keep the supernatural elements of Greendale separate.
Of course, once the news of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina broke, fans began speculating that some sort of crossover between the two series would be inevitable and while it’s not completely out of the realm of possibility, the chances are slim to none. At the Television Critics Association summer press tour, CW President Mark Pedowitz said that “there will be no cross connection” between the two series mainly due to them being on separate networks.
Jon Goldwater, CEO of Archie Comics and an executive producer on Riverdale and Sabrina, echoed Pedowitz’s comments earlier this year as well.
We, for one, are so glad that things worked out the way they did because after seeing the full trailer for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina we can’t wait to see Sabrina Spellman as the badass heroine of her own story. You can check out the full trailer below!
