Riverdale: Sabrina was supposed to be the antagonist of Season 2
Riverdale, starring K. J. Apa, Lii Reinhart, Camila Mendes and Cole Sprouse and is based on the comics of Archie, presented for the first time in 1941 and is still in progress. Sabrina was introduced as a character in Archie Comics for the first time in Archie's Madhouse #22 in October 1962. The character has had a recurring role in the series Archie and has also got its own comic book from 1971.
In addition to the world of comics, Sabrina was also the star of several TV shows, both animated and live-action. His first TV appearance came in animated form in the ’70s, but it lasted only for a season. The character has had a few other animated series over the years, but the most popular version came out in 1996, Melissa Joan Hart. Now, a new live action version of the character will arrive on Netflix starring Kiernan Shipka in the role of Sabrina, but the character seemed to almost be able to get also in Riverdale.
Speaking with EW, the writer and showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa revealed that Sabrina is almost appeared at the end of season 1 of Riverdale, and would have been the antagonist of season 2. Aguirre-Sacasa is the showrunner of Riverdale, and The terrifying adventures of Sabrina (the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina). The showrunner explained that the season 2 of Riverdale had a theme of horror and could be compared to the comics, Afterlife With Archie. Aguirre-Sacasa has also explained that the decision not to include Sabrina in Riverdale was taken because Riverdale had “found its ground as a show devoted to the crime” and that “the magic had to exist at Greendale, but not in Riverdale”.
Even if Sabrina does not appear in Riverdale, The terrifying adventures of Sabrina will be a show to accompany in Riverdale. Aguirre-Sacasa was in fact originally developing Sabrina for The CW, but in the end it is transferred on Netflix for 2 seasons. The show has found its star in Shipka and Ross Lynch who plays the love interest of Sabrina, Harvey Kinkle. In addition, the two aunts of Sabrina will be performed by Miranda Otto (Aunt Zelda), and Lucy Davis (Aunt Hilda).
Therefore, Riverdale, and The terrifying adventures of Sabrina may potentially have a crossover at some point, since, as said, Aguirre-Sacasa is the showrunner of both shows. Even if this could not be foreseen at this time, the fans do not see the hour that Sabrina the face of his return, with the debut at the end of October.
