The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Companion Series for Riverdale in the Works at The CW



We’ve taken a bit of flak for covering “Riverdale” on The CW, but the powers-that-be behind the series have teased that we might see some of the supernatural characters from the Archie comics pop up now and then.  And it turns out they were right – just not quite how we were expecting…

Read on for the first details on the upcoming “Riverdale” companion series “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.”

From the Press Release:
Get ready for an intense look into the world of magic and witchcraft with “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” a new one-hour dark drama/horror project based on the classic Archie Comics character. The new project is eyed to debut in The CW’s 2018-19 television season as a companion to “Riverdale.”

The new show will be written by Archie Comics Chief Creative Officer and “Riverdale” showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, directed by Lee Toland Krieger, and produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Brothers Studios. Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schecter, Jon Goldwater, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, and Lee Toland Krieger serve as executive producers.

“The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” will draw from the critically acclaimed CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA comic book series from Archie Comics written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and artist Robert Hack, detailing the compelling and shocking re-imagining of Sabrina the Teenage Witch’s occult origins. This dark coming-of-age story deals with horror, the occult, and witchcraft and will see Sabrina struggle to reconcile her dual nature of being half-witch and half-mortal while protecting her family and the world from the forces of evil.

Casting and additional news on the new series will be revealed in the months to come.
