Riverdale fans, and inevitable fans of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, have been gunning for a crossover since they got wind of the new spooky Netflix show.
Fortunately, Sabrina star Kiernan Shipka is also keen, telling Digital Spy that she’s “excited” about a potential mash-up of witchcraft, drug dealers and serial killers.
She said: “As far as the universes being shared, Riverdale is technically the town over and it’s not something that’s touched on a ton in the show – but it is referenced a few times in little comments.
“As a Riverdale fan myself, I always get excited about the possibility of something more,” Kiernan added. “But who knows?”
Not only is Kiernan a fan of Riverdale, it turns out she was originally eyed for Lili Reinhart’s character Betty Cooper.
Riverdale and Sabrina showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa explained: “Kiernan was iconic in Mad Men, and I had even thought about her, I was like, ‘Oh I wonder if she’d ever do Betty’.

“When [Sabrina] moved from CW to Netflix, our casting director David Rapaport said, ‘By the way this is something Kiernan might be interested in’.
“There was no script at the time, but from the second he said that, for me it was sort of like, ‘OK she’s Sabrina, I’m writing this for Kiernan’.”
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will stream exclusively on Netflix from October 26.
