Riverdale showrunner Robert Aguirre-Sacaa has announced a spin-off based on the show is in the works with CW
“We’re still early on in the process and it will be very different from Riverdale,” said Aguirre-Sacasa during a TCA event (via Deadline). The producer told reporters the spin-off would happen “in this development cycle.”
Aguirre-Sacasa and CW president Mark Pedowitz said that Riverdale’s first spin-off, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, will not crossover with Riverdale, but they did not rule out the possibility of it happening in the future.
“I think right now we’re just making sure that the shows have their own identities and own set-of-rules,” Aguirre-Sacasa explained.
Sabrina was initially planned to air on the CW, but will now instead debut on Netflix, which has a streaming agreement with CW.
