“Riverdale” To Be Joined By “Sabrina” On CW

In the wake of their success with “Riverdale,” The CW will expand its small screen Archie universe with “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” in the works.

The one-hour drama from Berlanti Productions, and Warner Bros. Television reimagines “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” as a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and witchcraft.

Sabrina herself is a half-witch, half-mortal standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit.

“Riverdale” showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is writing the adaptation which could debut in the 2018-19 season. Lee Toland Krieger will direct and executive produce with Aguirre-Sacasa, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Jon Goldwater.
