Riverdale &Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina Showrunner Pitches Crossover Movie
Are you guys ready for the best news ever? Okay, so you know how Riverdale writer and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has said in the past that a crossover between both shows won’t happen right now? It turns out, he might have had a change of heart because he revealed that he has a few ideas – and one of them involves a movie with BOTH casts!
If you’re more than halfway through Netflix’s CAOS, then there’s a pretty good chance you caught that special cameo in episode seven. Though it may have been extremely subtle, fans couldn’t believe their eyes when a Riverdale character showed up. In the Thanksgiving ep, titled “Feast of Feasts,” Miss Wardell (better known as Madam Satan) gets a knock at the door and a pizza delivered from none other than Ben Button! You know, the guy who jumps to his death at the end of Riverdale’s second episode this season? The same guy who’s involved on season three’s Gargoyle King mystery. HIM!

[SPOILER ALERT] Unfortunately, Miss Wardell eats him for dinner. But could Ben have survived that fall out of his hospital window? Obviously, this has us questioning everything. For example, was Ben’s cameo Roberto’s way of letting us know a crossover is on its way? It might just be.
“[Ben’s appearance] suggests a very deep, deep mythology where time and space bend. I love that kid. I’m sad that he keeps turning up and horrible things keep happening to him,” RAS told Entertainment Tonight, not confirming or denying if Ben died. “It seemed like it was pretty final, but yet there he is in Greendale. But in Greendale, everyone pops up – the dead don’t stay dead long in Greendale.”
This is so much to take in! We sort of had an idea that a crossover could happen – especially because both shows are in the Archie Universe so why the heck not! Ben’s cameo and Roberto’s comments suggest it’s more possible than ever. Our minds are buzzing with ideas RN. But, hold up, there’s more! Roberto shared an idea for an episode and he even has a name for a crossover movie!
“I would hate if there was no way possible for there ever to be a crossover,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “I think there’d be a great episode where the Riverdale kids hear about a haunted house in Greendale and try to break in and it’s Sabrina’s house. There’s totally a universe where that happens. Or now that we’ve got Sabrina and Riverdale, maybe there’s a standalone Afterlife movie or something that we can do combining both casts.”
We are 100% down for this or anything that can bring these amazing casts together. We’re excited just thinking about it, so imagine if this actually happens? PLEASE LET THIS HAPPEN, ROBERTO!
