Well, it looks like Sabrina the Teenage Witch is finally coming to Riverdale!

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina star Kiernan Shipka has officially confirmed today that she will reprise her role as Sabrina Spellman in the upcoming sixth season of The CW's teen drama She will appear in episode four, appropriately titled "The Witching Hour(s)," which is tentatively scheduled to air on December 7. 

The synopsis reads, "Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) is performing a dangerous spell, one that may mean the difference between life and death for a beloved member of the Blossom family, according to a logline description of the episode. Luckily, she's getting a much-needed assist from everybody's favorite 20-something witch, the iconic Sabrina Spellman (Shipka), visiting from Greendale in this years-in-the-making crossover."

Following the big announcement, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa expressed his excitement in the following statement to Entertainment Weekly, "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. It's also perfect that she shows up to help Cheryl Blossom during her hour of greatest need. Everyone on set lost their minds — I think fans will, too. It's really fun and special."

However, as for how Sabrina returns after she (spoiler alert) died at the end of her three-season run on Netflix, that remains to be seen, but it sounds like the two shows may not be set in the same timeline.
