When asked by Entertainment Weekly if she would consider appearing in the show, she said, “Never say never, but it would depend on the character they wrote. I just don’t know where I would fit in. I would definitely take a look at the material if they sent it along.”
She adds that the reboot is unsurprising given the enthusiasm for the show.
People kept asking for it, and they were already doing Riverdale, so I guess it made sense. I think they’re doing it in a smart way, change it up, don’t make it the same. If you’re going to do the same show, it probably would fall on its face, but I think what they’re doing is probably the smartest way to reboot something.
Currently titled The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, the reboot is based on the Archie comics, and will be set in the same universe as the immensely popular Riverdale. The two shows may even see some cross over. It has also been confirmed that the character of Harvey Kinkle will be returning, however I’m not sure anyone has reached out to original actor Nate Richert about whether or not he’ll be returning…
