Since it was announced, we've been keeping a close eye on Riverdale, the CW's updated take on Archie comics. Different from the modernization of the characters over in the main series from creators like Mark Waid, Fiona Staples, Chip Zdarsky, Veronica Fish and Derek Charm, Riverdale is going for high drama with lots of stakes under the guidance of Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. The characters you know and love from the books are all still there, but this Riverdale has a somber undercurrent, as the first season will play host to a murder mystery, secret romances, and tense friendships. The intrigue doesn't stop there though, as the cast of the show can attest.
We caught up with KJ Apa (Archie), Cole Sprouse (Jughead), Lili Reinhart (Betty), Camila Mendes (Veronia), Madelaine Petsch (Cheryl) and Ashleigh Murray (Josie) at San Diego Comic-Con to talk about Riverdale's first season, and what makes this version of America's icon so fascinating.
As news of the 2016-2017 television season begins to take shape like an ever growing eldritch horror, The CW today announced its plans plans for the upcoming year, including when we can expect Greg Berlanti and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa's Twin Peaks inspired Archie Comics adaptation Riverdale.
As The CW’s Archie adaptation Riverdale begins to take shape, we’ve been keeping a keen eye on the development of the series, from the initial plot synopsis and its bonkers descriptions of classic Archie character, through to the ongoing casting process. Now, we have the most important news yet to share with you… Archie actor KJ Apa has dyed his hair ginger!
The upcoming Archie adaptation Riverdale is one of our most anticipated shows of 2016, and we’ve already seen, from the original casting notices, that it seeks to shake things up from what we traditionally know about Archie and the gang. Over the past week, casting news has been trickling out, and now we have our Archie and several members of his supporting cast, we can start to see what the show is going to look like.
