You’re probably familiar with Sabrina the Teenage Witch. She was cute, and bubbly, and had that super sarcastic cat. Forget all of that. This show will be based on the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina comic from Riverdale show-runner and Archie Comics Chief Creative Officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.

Will There be a Season 2?

When it was announced that the series had moved from Network The CW to Netflix 2 seasons had been confirmed, the first airing this year on October 26th with the Second being released sometime in 2019.  There are currently 2 volumes of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and with the first season looking to cover the very first volume.


Will there ever be a crossover with Riverdale?

Eagle eye fans will know that Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and Afterlife with Archie are under the same publication of comics Archie Horror. There is currently an Archie TV series called Riverdale which aires on The CW but the current iteration of Riverdale doesn’t have the same premise as Afterlife with Archie (Premise is basically Riverdale with Zombies), not to mention Sabrina takes place almost 50 years prior to the events of Riverdale so we can rule out talks of a crossover for the time being.
