(ViacomCBS) – Kiernan Shipka guest star in a gripping crossover episode of The CW’s Riverdale December 7, playing the iconic Sabrina Spellman from The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
“Chapter Ninety-Nine: Witching Hour” revisits the tragic past of the woman Blossom. Desperate for help, Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) summons Greendale’s Spellman to perform a small spell. The season 6 crossover event was confirmed earlier this year. By CBS Katie Johnston was made aware of the upcoming special appearance this week in an interview with Shipka.
KJ- Sabrina Spellman from The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was summoned to Riverdale, and today we’re getting our first look at the season 6 episode, “Chapter 99: Witch Hour.” Join me today to talk about her appearance as her guest Kiernan Shipka. Thank you so much for hanging out with me today.
KS- Thank you for inviting me. I’m happy to hang.
KJ- Riverdale, based on the Archie Comics characters, first came out in 2017. It quickly gained a massive following of devoted followers. There have been discussions about implementing this crossover for a while. I have to ask you, have you always been a fan of the show before you were approached about starring, and how did this finally come to be?
KS- Yes, I’m a fan of Riverdale, and I have seen Riverdale before i do Sabrina. In the end, you know, it’s really fun. I think we did four parts of Sabrina. And there was so much going on in Greendale that she, like, never even made it to Riverdale, because she just didn’t have time, I guess. Now that she has more time and she’s back, it’s good to visit.
KJ- Last winter, we passed the fourth and final season of Netflix The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. At least to say a tragic ending to that story.
KS- A real parasite.
KJ- A real fool on the end of that. Shall we talk about what’s going on there in the upcoming episode of Riverdale?
KS- Well, I think the fans will understand better. We hint at some things, not everything is said. More will be revealed over time. But yeah, I think people will at least know a little bit about what happened, that everyone deserves to know such things.
KJ- Will this appearance be the first and only, or is there more to it, for Sabrina Spellman?
KS- It will definitely be the first, but I don’t think it will be the only one. I hope not. I really don’t. I really [hope] where we see more Sabrina.
KJ- Before I let you go. Kiernan, if you had special powers, witch powers, superhero powers, whatever they are, what would you want and why?
KS- I do not know. I think it’s pretty close to reality, but I would love to be a psychic. I mean, I think I have a pretty good intuition, but I would love to have those powers enhanced.
KJ- Oh, I like that too. I think that will help me a lot in daily life.
KS- I already know that!
