While the current Sabrina the Teenage Witch mini-series wraps next week, Archie Comics is working on the next big Sabrina event for the Spring of 2020 in Sabrina: Something Wicked by Kelly Thompson, Veronica Fish, and Andy Fish.
“I knew we had a tough task ahead because the CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA comic is — rightly so — beloved!” said writer Kelly Thompson. “And we were coming in and doing something very different — but people really seemed to embrace it and fall in love. It’s been fantastic. The second volume spins directly out of the first, and a lot of the things that we began setting up there will get explored in this second volume. The tone and approach will be similar but it will be a little darker and more dangerous, the stakes even higher.”
The five-issue sequel will delve further into the characters — both new and old — that were introduced in the first mini-series, including the teens of Greendale High and Sabrina’s familiar Salem, the former warlock / current snarky black cat. And with a deeper exploration of Greendale’s witch history comes many more witches, good and wicked!
“It’s not hype to say SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH by Kelly, Veronica, Andy, and Jack was a critical and sales success,” said Archie Comics Co-President and series editor Alex Segura. “They perfectly threaded the needle — telling a tale with heart, magic, humor, action, and a dash of danger and action. It felt natural and true, and the reader response was overwhelmingly positive. I’d be a terrible editor if I didn’t ask for more!”
Sabrina: Something Wicked is set to arrive next year.
