The success of Riverdale on the CW has spawned a spinoff on Netflix?
That seems to be the case as Netflix has signed a two season deal bringing The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina to the online TV network. The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was a horror comics series that re-examined the character of Sabrina the Teenage Witch known to many from kids TV series with a far more mature tone.
There was much speculation that Sabrina would appear first on Riverdale and then that her spinoff would be picked up by CW but Netflix snatched up the project probably as a direct result of the Riverdale’s international success on Netflix.
The show also has a two season commitment which means that the show will be able to build out its world without the constant threat of cancellation that another new show might have to be concerned about.
It is unclear what this will mean about the crossover potential between Riverdale and The Chilling of Adventures but both shows come from Berlanti productions so we can hope that any issues can be ironed out.
