The companion series will be the vein of Rosemary's Baby & The Exorcist

The drama in Riverdale may be heating up ahead of season two, but across the river, something wicked this way comes. A companion series to our new favorite guilty pleasure show is in the works and it stars none other than Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Don't expect animatronic cats and Melissa Joan Hart, though.

The new show is taking a page from Riverdale's "Archie Comics meets Twin Peaks" vibe and reimagining Sabrina as a dark coming-of-age tale that's being compared to Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist. Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is writing the new adaption and basing it off the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina comic he wrote himself. As The CW describes it: "This adaptation finds Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature--half-witch, half-mortal--while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit."

The announcement that the show is in the works should come with a sigh of relief from Riverdale's most hardcore fans. The addition of Sabrina has been whispered about for months and she even made an appearance in the season finale--albeit in comic book form. The show won't air until the CW's 2018-19 season, but we have a whole new, sexier season of Riverdale to look forward to on October 11th.
