20 Shows That Paved The Way For Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina
This is the big one. Riverdale is a teen sensation in its own right, and Chilling Adventures would literally not exist without The CW series’ dedicated fan base and critical acclaim. Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa had dabbled in television before developing Riverdale, notably on teen supernova Glee and Arrowverse series Supergirl, but Riverdale was the first series RAS could fully sink his teeth into. RAS is Archie Comics’ chief creative officer, and his singular vision for Riverdale has carried into its sister series despite their different networks in tone, aesthetic, and source material. We love Riverdale for Riverdale, but we also love it for bringing Chilling Adventures into our lives.
