Riverdale’s Cast Spills the Details on the Show’s Friendships, Rivalries and Dark Secrets [SDCC 2016]

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.

I'm not sure how they're doing it --- heck, I'm not sure how it's even possible --- but somehow, the CW's upcoming Riverdale TV show just keeps getting weirder. As we've already seen, the show's based on Archie Comics (with a pilot written by Archie's chief creative officer, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa) but with a twist that finds Riverdale's favorite teens harboring dark secrets, like a mysterious "arrangement" that's keeping an Adderall'd up Betty Cooper on the RHS cheerleading squad, and whatever it was that caused Archie and Jugehad to stop being best friends.

This week, though, the @ArchieComics Twitter account is posting some new pictures from the set, and we've gotten our first glimpse at a version of Pop's Chock'lit Shoppe that looks like it was imported straight from the set of Twin Peaks.
