The CW is taking the Archie comics and bringing them to life. However, the network is twisting it from the normal comic relief to a suspenseful teen thriller that’s borderline supernatural. The show will still focus on the love triangle with Archie, Betty and Veronica like in the comic. The three of them plus Jughead go around Riverdale to uncover secrets that are hidden underneath the town. This dark twist for the show may discourage some of the fans of the comic, but the chief creator for the Archie comics will be helping write the show. A one-shot comic will release a week later after the show that ties into the show. The creator of the show is Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the chief creative officer of the Archie Comic. It’s produced by Warner Brother Studios and Berlanti Productions.
The show will air on January 26 at 9 pm on the CW.
They already have the cast set, KJ Apa is Archie Andrews, Lili Reinhart is Betty Cooper, Camila Mendes is Veronica Lodge, Cole Sprouse is back to acting with this show playing Jughead Jones, Madelaine Petsch is Cheryl, and Luke Perry Is Fred Andrews. The CW has released the promo trailer for the show and there will be updates for the show here at the BlueXpress.
