Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Continues in Comic Series

Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina saga will continue in an upcoming comic series, The Occult World of Sabrina, that will pick up from the show’s cliffhanger ending. After the cancellation of the show, the teenage witch Sabrina Spellman will return to the medium she was originally created for in a series written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.

There has been a lot of uncertainty surrounding the future of Netflix’s adaptation of Archie Comics’ Sabrina. The show’s most recent season, which premiered in December 2020, introduced exciting new concepts such as the multiverse, hinting at the untold potential for numerous seasons to come. However, the streaming series that brought many viewers into Riverdale’s interconnected television universe won’t be able to watch the next chapter on Netflix. Instead, fans will have to return to the format that first introduced Sabrina to the world.

In an interview with Deadline, show runner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa revealed that a comic continuation of the popular Netflix show is coming in the form of The Occult World of Sabrina. Published under the banner label “Archie Horror,” the first issue further develops Sabrina Spellman in a story by Aguirre-Sacasa with art from Audrey Mok. In the interview with Deadline, Aguirre-Sacasa promised it would be directly tied to the final moments of the fourth season, saying, “The scene that we shot and had to take out of the Netflix series with Zelda is the exact scene verbatim that’s in the first issue of The Occult World of Sabrina. When we start that series, it’s exactly as it ended in the Netflix series with Sabrina and Nick in the sweet hereafter and her family and friends in Greendale are trying to live in a world without Sabrina.”

The writer and showrunner went onto detail the first major arc of the series, which will be called “A World Without Sabrina.” The haunting name seems to hint that it will be paying just as much attention to Sabrina’s friends and family as its titular teenage witch. Aguirre-Sacasa spoke on the series premise, saying, “We’ll see how her loved ones have been doing since Sabrina sacrificed herself. The first thing Zelda does is recruit a team of their family and friends to go into the underworld to bring Sabrina back to life.”

While Roberto is writing two horror-inspired comic series involving Sabrina Spellman, the differences between them will be interesting to see unfold. Fans of his initial run on Sabrina know that the Netflix series was strongly influenced by his writing. Now that Aguirre-Sacasa has been handed the reins again, there is a good chance the new title will diverge in tone, especially given the fact that he has taken time away from comics to focus on television. The Occult World of Sabrina is set to release later this year.
