Riverdale and Sabrina To Crossover…But Not How You Think

Okay we all know CW’s Riverdale and Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina take place within the same Archie-Verse and it’s only a matter of time before the two crossover! That time is now!! Just not how you might have expected it though:

According to Vulture, the upcoming Archie No. 700 comic book “finds Sabrina leaving Greendale and causing trouble in the next town over.” Said comic book writer Nick Spencer, “We were looking to do something that had never been done before, and we wanted to make it so every character that falls under the Archie banner felt like they had a place in the core title. When a character as classic and iconic as Sabrina comes to town, you know it has to have a big impact.”

Fans may remember that Netflix’s The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was originally planned as a spin-off of the CW’s Riverdale, and the two shows have the same creator/executive producer in Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. However, other than that mysterious cameo, there hasn’t really been a crossover on the TV side. But if you’re a comics fan, this won’t be the first link between the two worlds. In The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (the comics, that is, also written by Aguirre-Sacasa), Betty and Veronica actually pop up a couple of times, just two wayward Riverdale cheerleaders wondering what all that spooky commotion in the woods is about.

But if comics aren’t your thing and you’re just dying for live-action Sabrina/Archie crossover content, well, there’s a chance we could still get that live-action crossover.
