"Selena being Sabrina the teenage witch makes so much sense! It's full circle. Bless."

Casting rumours for Riverdale can't be trusted. We've learned this the hard way many times over the past year. Remember when a tweet circulated about Jake Paul supposedly being cast as Betty's brother? Then there was one about Tyler Blackburn, another one about Lucy Hale... it's never ending. And they're usually always wrong.

With news that the Sabrina The Teenage Witch is finally getting her own spin-off show, the rumours are back. The one circulating at the minute? Selena Gomez. No one quite knows why but it's probably because she just dyed her hair blonde.

People are absolutely stanning for the casting (despite having ZERO confirmation) particularly since the role that made Selena famous was that of Alex Russo on Wizards of Waverly Place. Kinda full circle if true, isn't it?

Some think Selena has already been dropping hints.

Some seem to have solid evidence.

And others are 100% against the possibility of Selena ever joining the cast of the wider Riverdale universe.

Unfortunately (or fortunately) Selena's involvement in the spin-off is literally just a rumour based on one tweet at the moment. And we ALL know how those tweets turn out.

And besides, Selena is working on her music AND her own damn TV show, 13 Reasons Why. Surely she'd be far too busy play a lead character on a show that would shoot in Vancouver? Just sayin'...

Anyway, Dove Cameron still remains the fan favourite to take the role but it looks like we're still a long way off from getting that sweet Sabrina confirmation.
