Netflix confirms Sabrina spin-off from Riverdale

It’s been as good as a done deal for a while, but now we have absolute confirmation that Netflix will air an updated Riverdale-esque Sabrina the Teenage Witch spin-off.

The story will be based on Archie Comics’ The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina which, like Riverdale, has a decidedly more YA feel than you might be expecting. The two shows will share many of the same creative team, also.

One thing to note, however, is that despite Riverdale airing on the streaming platform internationally, it calls The CW home in the US. This prevents the two series from crossing over in the same manner of Arrow, The Flash and it’s varius companion series. As such, the character of Sabrina probably won’t be popping up on Riverdale.

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, or whatever it ends up being called, has a 20-episode, straight to series order and will likely air in late 2018.
