In an interview with TV Guide, via Comicbook, the 22-year-old revealed she would be happy to return in Riverdale Season 7 and felt her character must make a comeback.

"Yeah, she has to come back. I think they're gonna need her help again," she said. "I would say [they should] lean into the chaos—no pun intended—as much as they can and work hard and have faith that it's all gonna work out, but at the end of the day, just truly probably call Sabrina again.”

The Swimming with Sharks star also wants to keep her character alive despite the cancellation of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina in 2020 after four seasons. Hence, she’s always game to reprise her role.

"And besides that, I think that both Roberto and I—and I don't want to put words in his mouth—but I really do think that we're both so passionate about this character and keeping her alive and well in the zeitgeist, in the universe.”

Kiernan Shipka added that Sabrina meant a lot to people, and she found it fun to share her with everyone.

“It's really fun to not only be her, but to get people excited about her. One of the joys of doing this is sharing the work, and when people love it, you want to keep doing it,” she stated. “I, certainly, and I think Roberto too want to continuously see where she could go.”
