In his interview with Deadline, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa announced that he will author both a new comic book series entitled “The Occult World of Sabrina” and “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #9.” The former picks up right where the Netflix show left off, and even includes a scene Aguirre-Sacasa planned to include in the “Sabrina” Season 4 finale, but had to cut following a discussion with Netflix about the series’ future. “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #9,” meanwhile, will follow Sabrina in the continuity of the original comic books, which Aguirre-Sacasa described as “much darker and more f—ed up than the Netflix series.”
Both series will chronicle an event called the Witch Wars, but since the Sabrina introduced in the TV show and the version of the character that debuted in the comics exist in different timelines, story specifics will differ between the two series. Aguirre-Sacasa explained that the two “Sabrina” comics function “almost as if there’s this Sabrina multiverse.”
Due to the similarities in plot between “The Occult World of Sabrina” and “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #9,” Deadline interviewer Rosy Cordero asked if the two comics might cross over. Though Aguirre-Sacasa answered that no plans are currently in place for a crossover event, the prospect of “a big crossover in the near future” between the two Sabrinas, as well as the introduction of the cast of “Riverdale” into one of the “Sabrina” stories, are both on the table.
