Before Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Riverdale Showrunner Had Other Options
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa dives into what could have been for the teenage witch.

Sabrina the Teenage Witch is making a big comeback. That much is evident after the reveal of the full trailer for Netflix's upcoming Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Before this all came to fruition, however, Riverdale showrunner and Archie Comics chief creative officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa had a number of options for bringing the titular witch back.
The Sabrina showrunner recently spoke to EW and revealed what other possibilities were on the table, including a potential movie under Blumhouse Productions. Read on for his comments.[blockquote-0]
Aguirre-Sacasa also revealed that initial ideas were in place for a Sabrina movie and talks were apparently ongoing with Jason Blum, who ultimately decided not to pursue the idea.[blockquote-1]
That is a particularly interesting revelation considering what we are getting now - an adaptation of a much darker kind of teenage witch story. A Riverdale crossover might have been interesting but it appears that there are no regrets in how this all turned out. We certainly can't argue there.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina stars Kiernan Shipka, Ross Lynch, Michelle Gomez, Chance Perdomo, Lucy Davis, Miranda Otto, Richard Coyle, Tati Gabrielle, Jaz Sinclair, and Bronson Pinchot. Its first season will hit Netflix on October 26th.[relatedArticle-0]
