So just when you thought things couldn't get spookier & supernatural during the sixth season of The CW's Riverdale (though, is there really such a thing as "too much" with this series), Kiernan Shipka's Sabrina Spellman will be returning to bring a little "CAOS" (and hopefully help Madelaine Petsch's Cheryl deal with that whole "possessed-by-an-old-family-member" thing). Though the news is expected to be announced at the show's PaleyFest panel in Los Angeles later today, TVLine had the exclusive. And that's not all, because it looks like there will be a musical episode this season tackling the musical adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis' novel American Psycho (which series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa wrote the book for, with Duncan Sheik penning the music & lyrics).
Now here's a look at the preview images & the episode overview for S06E09 "Chapter One Hundred and Four: The Serpent Queen's Gambit"; and an overview for S06E10 "Chapter One Hundred and Five: Folk Heroes":

Riverdale stars KJ Apa as Archie Andrews, Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper, Camila Mendes as Veronica Lodge, Cole Sprouse as Jughead Jones, Madelaine Petsch as Cheryl Blossom, Mächen Amick as Alice Cooper, Casey Cott as Kevin Keller, Charles Melton as Reggie Mantle, Vanessa Morgan as Toni Topaz, Erinn Westbrook as Tabitha Tate, and Drew Ray Tanner as Fangs Fogarty. Chris O'Shea (Netflix's You) joins the cast as Percival Pickens, the town's newest resident. Although he presents as charming (and is), Percival's also manipulative, powerful, and increasingly dangerous as he comes into conflict with our characters- most especially Archie. A descendent of one of Riverdale's founding fathers, General Pickens, Percival wants to turn Riverdale into a "utopia" -and it's a dark agenda he'll pursue quietly but ruthlessly. Based on the characters from Archie Comics, Riverdale is from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios, with executive producers Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Supergirl, Glee), Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl), Sarah Schechter (Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl) and Jon Goldwater (Archie Comics Publisher & CEO).
