Oh, for the love of Archiekins, please let this happen.
Since Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is a dark, twisted companion series to The CW's mega-hit Riverdale, the possibility of a crossover is totally possible. Despite being developed at The CW originally, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina eventually moved to Netflix last December and was given a straight-to-series order for two seasons.
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the creator and an executive producer on both shows, is very hopeful for a possible crossover. Quite frankly, it's a brilliant idea since Archie Andrews and Sabrina Spellman are both owned by Archie Comics. In fact, the characters helm from similarly spooky hometowns: Riverdale and Greendale, respectively.
During the "Netflix & Chills" panel at New York Comic-Con, Aguirre-Sacasa dished on the whether Archie and Sabrina's worlds would collide in the future. "I'm first and foremost a fan of these two towns, Riverdale and Greendale," Aguirre-Sacasa revealed. "I love when comic book characters cross over, so itss a dream. Right now, we're focused on getting Sabrina out there and making sure Riverdale is as good as it can be. So, I’m hopeful!"
Kiernan Shipka, who plays the titular half-mortal, half-witch, explained how excited she is to be starring on the forthcoming Netflix series. "Knowing that Roberto created Riverdale and Riverdale had such intense fans, I knew that people were gonna love it," stated Shipka. "But it's easy when you're working to completely forget about that aspect of it. The amount of fan accounts that are popping up and cool cosplayers that are already doing outfits, it’s mind-blowing. It makes those night shoots, where you’re wrapping at 7 a.m. on Saturday morning, pretty easy to get through, because we have the most awesome fans already and we haven't even aired yet."
What do you think about a possible Riverdale and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina crossover? Can it be pulled off seamlessly or should the two shows remain separate? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
Season 3 of Riverdale premieres on Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 8/7c on The CW. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina drops on Friday, Oct. 26 on Netflix.
