Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will reportedly begin its production in 2018. Netflix has asked for a two-season order. Several reports suggest that the upcoming series will follow a dark drama in the horror genre. It will be nothing like its 1996-2003 comedy series version, “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch.” The new version will tap into the dark side of Sabrina’s life as she learns witchcraft and sorcery.
It looks like the spinoff series would be darker than Riverdale. It is currently unknown if the Archie comics character-based TV series will have any sort of crossover or reveal a connection with the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
