All the Riverdale References You Missed on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 3

After season 3 of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, it’s hard to believe that the Netflix series exists in the world as The CW’s Riverdale.

Sabrina Spellman’s town of Greendale borders the “murder capital of the world,” Riverdale and is split by Sweetwater River.

But it’s easy to forget that the shows are “cut from the same cloth” amidst all the magic, satanic rituals, and time loops that have defined the third season, which is why the series made several attempts to remind you, with the lead character even stepping for into Riverdale all-too-briefly.

In fact, Riverdale is much closer in proximity than previously imagined, which almost lends itself to that rumored crossover episode.

Fans of the shows have either pushed for the crossover or voiced their distaste with the idea, but if crafted tastefully, I think Betty Cooper and Sabrina Spellman might make a very dynamic duo. Or maybe a cheer-off between Brina’s Ravenette’s and Cheryl’s Vixens? We’re just throwing out a few ideas, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.

Season 3 finds Sabrina on a few quests, but most of them are fueled by her desire to smash the patriarchy, which we can also see the Riverdale ladies getting behind. It’s what Veronica works against nearly every day of her life!

Here are all the Riverdale Easter-eggs found in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina:

  • As Sabrina embarks on a quest to find the Unholy Regalia in an effort to defeat her title as Queen of Hell and beat Prince Caliban (made of clay), she and Ambrose cross over to Riverdale for the first time to visit a maple tree at the Blossom Maple Farms said to be hiding Herod’s crown. Yes, the same farm owned by Cheryl Blossom and her unhinged fam! find Herod’s crown in Riverdale. When they cut down the tree to remove said crown, it’s drenched in Riverdale’s gooey specialty — maple syrup.

  • On their way into town, a “Welcome to Riverdale” sign greeted them, and the back of the sign included graffiti phrases “murder capital of the world,” “SSS (for Southside Serpents), and “Jughead Wuz Here,”  with a small crown.

  • After being cursed by the Pagan witches, Hilda begins her transformation into a spider. (Spider fans, look away!) She tells Mr. Cee, her fiancee, that she’s starving and would love a juicy burger and a milkshake from the best burger joint in town, which is conveniently located in Riverdale. Fans of The CW series know she’s referring to Pop’s Chock’lit Shoppe and have no objections about it being the best. If it’s good enough for Archie, Jughead, Betty and Veronica, it’s good enough for the Spellman’s.

  • While Mr. Cee is out on his burger run, a Southside Serpent (one we’ve never seen before, but it’s fine) wanders into Cerberus Books looking for a bite to eat. Little does he know he’s about to become the meal instead. Hilda’s spidery-persona swoops him up and all we see is blood gushing down. Serpent down.


  • The best was an appearance from Penelope Blossom herself, though, guest star Nathalie Boltt didn’t appear as the Riverdale character. Instead, she portrayed a New Orleans woman named Miss Dubois, who was Prudence’s disguise, known as a glamour, while on her hunt to kill her father Faustus Blackwood. However, Faustus was playing the same game and was hiding under a glamour as a member of the Judas Society. It’s unclear why Riverdale chose to feature Boltt in this scene and not a different actress that doesn’t have a connection with this town, but maybe it means Prudence and Ambrose spent some time in Riverdale prior to their trip to New Orleans?

  •  A few of the faces making their mark on season 3 of CAOS have come from Riverdale. You may recognize newcomer Jonathan Whitesell who plays Robin Goodfellow, a Pagan witch and Theodore’s new BF, as Kurtz from Riverdale’s third season. Matty Finochio, who plays the creepy ice cream truck owner that Sabrina drags to Hell, will appear on an upcoming episode of Riverdale as a quiz show host.

  • CAOS isn’t the only one boasting crossovers. On the Riverdale Midseason Premiere, Betty was interviewing football players from neighboring towns to expose Stonewall Prep dangerous approach to the sport. One of the football players included Billy Marlin from Greendale who was also turned into a pig by the Pagan’s on CAOS.

‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ Cancelled at Netflix, Final Episodes to Air Later This Year



Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Cancelled by Netflix

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina needs a magical spell to undo this one.

In a surprising move, the Kiernan Shipka-led series was cancelled by Netflix.

The streaming giant announced Wednesday that the series would return for its fourth and final installment later this year. The third and fourth seasons were renewed in 2018 for a total of 16-episodes split up into two parts. The final season will consist of 8 episodes.

“Working on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has been an incredible honor from day one. The cast, beginning with Kiernan as everyone’s favorite teen witch, has been an absolute joy. I am beyond thankful to the crew, writers, editors, assistants, and everyone for pouring so much love into this dark dream of a show,” said showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. “I’m also grateful to our partners at Netflix, Warner Bros., Berlanti Television and Archie Comics for letting us tell the story we wanted to tell, the way we wanted to tell it. We can’t wait for everyone to see part four.”  

“Our final chilling adventure begins this fall on @netflix. Hold on tight. So proud of this show, so grateful to everyone who worked on it…#sabrinanetflix! 🖤📺🎭🏆🌈💋👠,” Aguirre-Sacasa shared on Instagram with a photo of Kiernan in the titular role juxtaposed with a drawing from the Archie Comics. 

It’s been a hard week for Aguirre-Sacasa’s who saw his other Riverdale spinoff, Katy Keene, led by Lucy Hale, cancelled by The CW earlier this week. His pilot for The Brides was also passed over at ABC.  

Riverdale has been renewed for a fifth season at The CW and set for a January 2021 premiere. Given the show’s massive success in Europe and other parts of the country, it doesn’t seem like there is much to worry about. (See all the Riverdale references on Chilling Adventures here!)

Scariest Horror TV Shows to Watch for Friday the 13th



Chilling TV Shows to Watch on Friday the 13th

Happy Friday the 13th. 

If you’re in the mood to get your mind off of reality (we can’t blame you, coronavirus coverage is dominating the Internet right now) and watch some scary TV shows, we have just the thing. 

While horror used to be a big-screen format, it has found a home on small-screens with shows eager to push forward complex and psychological mysteries, apocalyptic themed-themes, classic slasher tropes, and, for good measure, old fashioned jump scares. 

Check out our list of Friday the 13 TV shows to watch!


Riverdale – The CW 

Forget Freddie, Jason, and Michael, Riverdale has the Black Hood, the Gargoyle King, and Edgar Evernever. Riverdale, a town best known by its nickname “murder capital of the world,” is filled with murder mysteries and serial killers, and you never know if what you’re watching is what’s really happening. 


Haunting of House Hill – Netflix

There’s nothing scarier than moving into a creaky, old house with your five children. Add in that the house begins to have paranormal experiences that haunt the family simply looking to make a quick buck from a house-flip and you have one of the scariest shows on Netflix. Keep the lights on, you’ll need ‘em. 


Scream – MTV/ BET

We hope you remember Ghostface because he’s back this time in a TV series adaptation of the horror film franchise. The MTV series centered around a brutal murder in Lakewood that stirs up memories of a crime spree from the past. The masked killer is out for blood and revenge and leads you on a fun and twisted game of whodunnit.


Nancy Drew – The CW

Your favorite sleuthing book detective has made her way to the small screen. Horseshoe Bay is a town plagued by unsettled and ghostly spirits, but one reigns supreme: Lucy Sable. The Seaqueen was murdered in 2000 and has become somewhat of an urban legend until Nancy and her friends, the Drew Crew, decided to solve her mysterious death when it intertwined with another, connected murder.


Chilling Adventures of Sabrina – Netflix 

The series will leave you praising Satan! Sabrina Spellman lives on the other side of the Sweetwater River in Greendale, the neighboring town of Riverdale. Sabrina is a half-watch, half-mortal who finds herself fighting against dark forces from the occult that threatens her human world.


The Exorcist – FOX 

If the film scared you, the series will give you nightmares. Angela Rance turns to Father Tomas Ortego, a church leader in Chicago, for help battling the evil emitting from inside their house and causing nightmares and psychotic breaks.

American Horror Story – FOX 

The anthology series from Ryan Murphy finds each season diving into a new disturbing and gruesome storyline though the actors appear in multiple episodes as new characters. Many elements of the plot are pulled loosely from real events, which makes it even more terrifying. To help you get a general idea, “Murder House,” “Asylum,” “Coven,” “Freakshow,” and “Hotel” are all different seasons to indulge in… if you dare.


Black Mirror – Netflix 

When I was a little girl, the Twilight Zone series terrified me, but Black Mirror amplifies the genre by “tapping into the collective unease about the modern world.” In short, it examines modern society through the lens of technology, and there’s nothing scarier than being hit with a dose of realism. Each episode is a stand-alone drama, so you don’t have to watch it all at once.


Tell Me A Story – CBS All Access

These aren’t the fairy tales you’re used to. The anthology series, hailing from The Vampire Diaries’ Kevin Williamson, is a dark and twisted take on your favorite fairy tales as they emphasize qualities like greed, lust, murder, and revenge. Season 1 digs into “Little Red Riding Hood,” “Three Little Pigs,” and “Hansel and Gretel,” while season 2 taps into “Beauty and the Beast,” “Sleeping Beauty” and “Cinderella.”


The Purge – FX

Based off a film of the same name, the TV series explores what happens to a society when murder and all crime becomes legal for a 12-hour period. Seemingly unconnected characters cross paths, but can they be trusted on Purge Night or are they all just playing the game?


Les Revenants (The Returned) – A&E Network

When a group of men, women, and children return home to their village, they’re met with confusion as they’ve been dead for several years. A series of murder coincide with their return that seem connected to a serial killer from the past.
