Riverdale Is Bringing Back A Fan Favorite Character
Riverdale began with a simple question: what if the CW made a teen-drama-comedy-horror that was part Gossip Girl, part Twin Peaks, but all characters from Archie Comics, and now Archie is super-jacked? The answer was a critical and audience sensation that has now lasted six seasons (and has already been renewed for a seventh season. And while Riverdale has had no shortage of fan-favorite moments and characters (many of them instantly becoming memes), a particular beloved character has recently been announced to return: Sabrina Spellman, also known as Sabrina the Teenage Witch. And since Riverdale is not quite at the Multiverse stage of development yet (give it a year), that means Kiernan Shipka is returning to help the Archie gang with any and all of their dark sorcery needs.
You wouldn’t think there would be a lot of call for that, but Riverdale is a show where Betty (Lili Reinhart) has a serial killer brother, Veronica (Camila Mendes) is sometimes a ruthless crime boss, and Archie (KJ Apa) once formed a masked vigilante group that bordered on some fascist rhetoric. A storyline in a recent season of Riverdale crossed over with Netflix’s The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, as Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch) needed Sabrina’s assistance in casting a spell that had to due with a splinter universe called “Rivervale” so, it’s kind of complicated. While it is currently known exactly why Kiernan Shipka’s version of Sabrina will be returning to Riverdale, it probably will involve some dark magic and possibly resurrecting some people from beyond the grave. Really, it’s an interesting show.
