“WITCH WAR” Part 3: “The Sacrificial Lamb”–Sabrina has brought Harvey's body back to life (along with her father's soul). But there is a cost to everything. Unless she wants the Gates of Hell to open, Sabrina must find a person to sacrifice in Harvey's place. But wait...Sabrina would never kill someone, would she?

On top of that, Aguirre-Sacasa is also teaming with artist Audrey Mok (Archie, Josie and the Pussycats) for The Occult World of Sabrina, a brand-new comic series that continues the story of Netflix's television adaptation of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina following its cancellation. Occult World is set to kick off later this year with its first story arc, "A World Without Sabrina."

"Bringing Sabrina and her family and friends to life on the screen for Netflix was a dark dream come true, and I couldn't be prouder of our four seasons, but it all started with a comic book series that was truly a labor of love for everyone who worked on it," said Aguirre-Sacasa. "Reuniting with Robert Hack and the entire Archie Comics team and getting to pick up where we left off has been the best homecoming I could have ever asked for."

"Roberto coming back to the comics fold is such a special thing to experience," added Archie Comics CEO/Publisher Jon Goldwater. "He's done a remarkable job of creating fresh, new and captivating stories across Riverdale, Sabrina and Katy Keene. He steps right back into his comics sweet spot, and the world he has created is truly amazing."

Aguirre-Sacasa and Hack's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina comic book series originally launched in October 2014, with the eighth and most recent mainline issue releasing in August 2017. A spiritual successor to Aguirre-Sacasa and Francesco Francavilla's horror title Afterlife with Archie, Chilling Adventures puts a dark, satanic twist on fan-favorite Archie Comics character Sabrina the Teenage Witch against the backdrop of 1960s small-town America.

Netflix's present day-set TV adaptation of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina premiered in 2018, with Aguirre-Sacasa serving as creator and showrunner. As Goldwater alludes to, Aguirre-Sacasa has filled a similar role on Archie Comics' other recent TV projects, Riverdale and Katy Keene. Netflix's Sabrina show concluded in late 2020 after 36 episodes across four parts. Aguirre-Sacasa previously hinted that the show's story would be continued in comics.

Written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and illustrated by Robert Hack and Jack Morelli, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #9 goes on sale Oct. 12 from Archie Comics.

Written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and illustrated by Audrey Mok, The Occult World of Sabrina launches later this year.
