This season of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina ended in 2020, but that doesn’t rule out the possibility that it will continue to exist in the odd universe that it shares with Riverdale.
Kiernan Shipka has already repeated her role as Sabrina in Riverdale season 6, and she will do so once more in the upcoming season.
According to TVLine, the adolescent witch will make a comeback later in the season, with the bombshell formally revealed during the show’s PaleyFest panel discussion on Saturday (April 9).
Sabrina landed in Riverdale as part of the five-episode ‘Rivervale’ event to assist her friend Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch) with a spell during her previous stint on the show, but there has been no word on what exactly brought Sabrina back to Riverdale this time.
Although the publication didn’t have any information on any upcoming episodes, they did have information on this season’s musical episode, which will be an adaptation of the American Psycho musical — a show that showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa created as well. To be honest, a musical about an evil serial killer is definitely one of the most Riverdale things you could imagine, don’t you think?
There has also been a lot of speculation that Riverdale may be ending after its (already confirmed) seventh season, with Lili Reinhart suggesting that the show will finish after this season “”It’ll most likely be the last one,” Camila Mendes says, adding, “I’ll give it another season.” I believe we will make it through season 7. Let’s hope for the best. We’ll see what happens.”
That sentiment was shared by Cole Sprouse, who stated that the cast is eager to “put a bow on it” while also implying that they may not be privy to discussions concerning the show’s future.
In the words of the actor, “I’m not a creative force behind [Riverdale].” The scripts are often sent to us the day before the shoot, and we are then asked to shoot.
Riverdale airs on Sunday nights on The CW in the United States. In the United Kingdom, you can watch the show on Netflix, with new episodes being added on a weekly basis.
Riverdale Season 6 Spoiler
Having returned from a terrifying parallel reality, Riverdale has witnessed the reemergence of supernatural beings who had previously been absent from the show’s universe.
Archie, Betty, and Jughead have all gained supernatural abilities, while Cheryl has been possessed by her ancestor Abigail Blossom, who is hell-bent on seeing Archie, Betty, and Jughead dead for their roles in Abigail’s execution by burning at the stake.
The other member of the “core four” on which the series has traditionally prided itself, Veronica Lodge, is receiving the short end of the stick in almost every aspect.
Veronica has become even more alienated as a result of the previous events. Not only is she isolated from the core four, but she is also secluded from the rest of the town, which is completely unacceptable for one of the series’ central characters.
However, the programme has never done a good job of depicting the core four as equals, and Veronica has always been the one on the outside looking in, the only one who does not have a shared childhood experience with the other members to fall back on.
Veronica is left alone as the other three members of the core four are, for the first time, on the same page, utilising their powers to try to prevent Percival Pickens from destroying the town.
I’m sure it wouldn’t have been difficult to incorporate her into this supernatural storyline as well. She only needed to be in the vicinity of Archie’s house when the bomb went off. This would have introduced Veronica into the tale while also strengthening the camaraderie amongst the core four, which has nearly always been, shall we say, non-existent between them.
With the exception of Reggie, Veronica has had little contact with anyone else since her return from “Rivervale.” On the sixth episode of season six, Veronica’s moment of reconnection with Betty (which was seen in the episode’s trailer) is deleted from the episode. The two of them still have a scene together, but all semblance of a friendship between them has been destroyed.
A similar scene occurs later on, after Veronica breaks the news of Hiram’s death at a town council meeting. Her interaction with Archie, who is attempting to be there for her, is just utilised to have Archie unwittingly make Veronica feel terrible for her role in Hiram’s death. In spite of their long history together and Archie’s insider knowledge of Veronica’s complicated feelings for her father, their relationship is superficial and superficiality can not be tolerated.
Despite the fact that recent storylines have provided the perfect opportunity to do so, no effort has been taken to even pretend that the core four are buddies at this point.
Veronica has had to deal with two huge emotional setbacks while the rest of the group is dealing with their abilities. First and foremost, there was her father’s death, which was almost as convoluted as their relationship itself. Veronica was left to deal with her father’s death on her own, with no one to guide her through the process.
After her father’s death, Veronica was almost shunned by the community.
In public, blaming Veronica for Hiram’s actions in Riverdale on her is completely unacceptable. Even though both her ex-husband and oldest kid were serial killers who terrorised the town for months, no one ever blamed Alice for their crimes. It’s like the proverbial pot calling the kettle black.”
Nobody, not even Reggie, has come to Veronica’s defence during this whole ordeal. Alice’s evaluation has been accepted by the community. Because of their preoccupation and tunnel vision, the other members of the core four fail to see how important Veronica could be given the information she supplied regarding Percival not existing prior to his arrival in town.
After all she’s done to try to stop her father’s rampage, Veronica is being torn apart because of her last name. It’s completely perplexing.
Veronica’s treatment in Riverdale season six is upsetting and wrong. She hasn’t interacted with anyone in Riverdale since her relationship with Archie ended.
