Entertainment Weekly recently revealed that Sabrina will appear in “Riverdale” Season 6, Episode 4 “The Witching Hour(s).” The Season 5 finale reveals that Cheryl Blossom’s (Madelaine Petsch) ancestor was burned at the stake for being a witch, setting the stage for Cheryl’s own witchy abilities to come forward. As per EW, the logline for the episode explains “Cheryl is performing a dangerous spell, one that may mean the difference between life and death for a beloved member of the Blossom family.” So it seems like Sabrina might step in to give Cheryl a helping hand with her spell.
Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa told the outlet that the crossover has been in the works for quite some time, saying, “We’ve been talking about having Sabrina visit ‘Riverdale’ since season 1, so it’s thrilling that this is finally happening, as part of our ‘Rivervale’ special event.” He also went on to say, “It’s also perfect that she shows up to help Cheryl Blossom during her hour of greatest need.”
Sabrina Spellman herself, Kiernan Shipka, also got fans excited with a post on Instagram of herself dressed in black on the Riverdale set. The episode will be a part of the “Rivervale” five-episode event, which starts on November 26, and has a darker tone. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa recently told TVLine, ”Things are a little bit darker, a little bit weirder, a little more twisted in Rivervale.”
So at least there isn’t long to wait after the surprising Season 5 finale.
