Will We Ever See Kiernan Shipka's Sabrina Spellman Again?
“Riverdale” set the foundation for a more horror-centric theme for the sixth and penultimate season of the series and introduced Sabrina Spellman into the story. This long-awaited crossover with the spin-off "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" sees actress Kiernan Shipka reprising her role as the titular character in the series.
Fans may have been confused by Sabrina’s inclusion as she died at the end of her series, but her presence is explained in Season 6, Episode 19. Sabrina’s resurrection leaves the possibility of the character returning in the future with Shipka saying, “For the final season of 'Riverdale,' I told [the show’s creator] whenever you need me, I'm there. I'm your girl."
Though series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa hasn’t confirmed Sabrina’s return, Shipka believes there’s a possibility as she says they’re both “passionate about this character and keeping her alive and well in the zeitgeist, in the universe." The high enthusiasm when the character is on-screen leaves fans hoping for more chances to see the witch in Season 7.
