Riverdale already has one spinoff in the works. The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is on its way to your eyeballs via Netflix. What are the chances of seeing more spinoffs from the world of CW’s Riverdale?
“I’m waiting to hear what [Riverdale showrunner] Roberto [Aguirre-Sacasa] has in mind,” CW president Mark Pedowitz said during the TCA summer press tour regarding other Riverdale spinoffs. “He is thinking about something.”

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was originally in development at The CW before making the jump to Netflix because of a sweet, two-season deal that, presumably, The CW was unable to offer.
“The studio came to us — Peter came to me actually — and said, ‘We have a two-year commitment from Netflix,'” recounted Pedowitz regarding the development of the Sabrina show. “And I said, ‘Go with [Netflix], it’s the right thing to do for your business.'”
Sabrina‘s Netflix home no doubt makes crossover storylines more difficult. Pedowitz confirmed that “there will be no cross connection right now with Sabrina at all.”
“I wish them all well,” added Pedowitz. “I wish Greg [Berlanti] and Roberto well with Sabrina. I think they’ll do fine.”
