Netflix Reveals All Crossovers The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina Had With Riverdale
As Netflix moves forward with its plan for a Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 2, it has released startling footage on its official Twitter account where it dawns upon the number of times Riverdale has unofficially met Sabrina. The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina which comes from the stables of Riverdale creators was initially helmed for the CW network. However, point to a few programming restrictions, the makers shifted the series completely to Netflix for original airing. When there were plans to revive Sabrina initially for CW the show runners also planned an amazing Riverdale Sabrina crossover. Unfortunately, with Sabrina finding her new home at Netflix the plans for an official crossover had to go down the drains.
Although Sabrina and Riverdale have not met officially yet, there have been brief moments on the new horror show which emit the signature Riverdale vibes. In The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 1, a recurring Riverdale character, Ben the pizza delivery boy, appeared on the Netflix show. Fans were quick to take notice of this unofficial, uncanny crossover and the flooded their Twitter feeds with references to the same.

The Title Sequence Of The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina
Firstly the video demonstrates that Sabrina hints references to Riverdale in the very Inception of all its episodes. In its animated title track, viewers can see Sabrina sitting in front of her television screen watching a show starring cartooned versions of Archie and Betty. The wall just beside the television screen reads “Based on the comics by Archie comics.”
The video then teases yet another amusing Easter Egg. In the second episode of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, there is a particular track where the teenage witch talks with high high school buddies over a Cafeteria table. Sabrina’s thermos, placed on the table features the Archies. The Archies are banned from the Archie comics that include Archie, Betty, Jughead and Veronica as its prime band members.
Someone Asked The Weird Witches If They Were From Riverdale
In episode 2, the references become less obscure. A group of boys directly ask the Weird Witches if they were from Riverdale. The witches; however, deny all assumptions and leave subtle hints about hailing from a ‘special school’.
The Bowling Match
Episode 4 also leaves a quick glimpse of an unofficial crossover. The Easter Egg does not occupy enough screen time but remains fairly noticeable. There is a poster on the high school’s notice board that provides information about an impending bowling competition between Greendale Ravens and Riverdale Bulldogs.
The Dead Pizza Delivery Boy- Ben Button
The video also confirms the deliberate appearance of Ben Button in The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Ben appears on the Netflix show to deliver pizza at Mrs Wardwell’s house. The main perplexity around his appearance on Sabrina is that while Ben delivers us pizza on the Netflix show around November, he had died much earlier on Riverdale. While this may appear to some people as a timeline mishap, the show runners have confirmed this as an intended eerie, spooky crossover.
Okay, We All Missed This One
Finally the video reveals a highly avoidable Easter Egg from episode 3. In a scene where Sabrina is searching for a book in the library, the camera moves as in to show the top of the library shelf. While this camera activity provides a transition between scenes, viewers miss to see Jughead’s Crown carved onto the top of the library shelf.
Will There Be An Official Riverdale Sabina Crossover In The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina Season 2?
With the teaser for the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 2 already being out, the creatives and networks are teasing potential plot lines for the upcoming series. The show runners have repeatedly mentioned that they are always looking forward to Sabrina and Riverdale crossover. And with this video officially creating spooky links between the two shows, it is extremely inevitable that the The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 2 will meet Riverdale in an official crossover.
