Get ready for Riverdale, the new CW series that has officially been picked up for its first season. Riverdale will be a live-action adaptation of the comic Archie. The show will have all of your favorite Archie crew including Betty, Veronica, Jughead, and of course Archie himself.
The show will be a “bold, subversive take” on the iconic characters, and will show a darker side of the seemingly wholesome town of Riverdale. We will still see a lot of the familiar plots of Archie though, like the timeless love triangle between Archie, Betty and Veronica.
Jon Goldwater, the CEO and Publisher of Archie Comics said this about the show:
This is a historic moment for Archie Comics and I couldn’t be more proud. It’s a culmination of my time here, and I’m eager to see Greg Berlanti, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, The CW, Warner Brothers Studios, and the cast bring Riverdale to viewers every week. My promise to fans? You ain’t seen nothing yet.
KJ Apa is set to play the leading role of Archie Andrews, Lili Reinhart will play Betty Cooper, and Camila Mendes will play Veronica Lodge. The show will be an hour long weekly drama. We will report more news on the series as it comes to us. Let me know below if you’re an Archie fan!
