The CW’s Riverdale has been performing strongly enough in its inaugural episodes that The CW is considering a whole mess of Archie-related shows, so it shouldn’t surprise you that Riverdale itself will earn another round. Yes, the weird Twin Peaks-meets-malt shoppe vibe of Riverdale is happening again.
The success of Arrow has now preceded no less than four CW DC dramas, so might Archie follow suit after the rave reception of Riverdale? A new development deal with Archie Comics could see additional characters landing shows to complement the malt shop murder-mystery, if not additional superhero series.
We like to have our fun with The CW’s sexy re-imagining of any property they can get their hands on, but boy, if Archie reboot Riverdale isn’t quickly becoming the poster-child. Archie appears romantically involved with most everyone in town by the extended Riverdale trailer, with a side-helping of murderous teen angst and a little Barb.
The CW’s sexed-up Archie reboot Riverdale might bring in viewers just to find out what this show actually is, given the vague and haunting teasers to date. The newest trailer for the 2017 premiere throws a good deal more murder into the mix as well, including some student-teacher relations for dear-old Archibald.
We all have our fun with The CW’s outrageously attractive casts pushing the limits of teen drama, but can a dash of Archie balance the scales? We’ll find out, as Riverdale and its inhabitants get a dramatic (and sexy, don’t forget sexy) makeover in the first 2017 trailer.
Just because The CW made one Super addition for the fall, that hasn’t put the kibosh on its plans for upfront season. The modernized Archie series Riverdale has officially been granted a series order, along with a Frequency reboot and more.
The CW has had itself a banner year between superheroes and Golden Globes, but there’s always a new class on the horizon. To wit, some of the network’s newest pilot offerings include CW-ized Archie drama Riverdale, a Frequency reboot, and more.
Mileage may vary, but in spite of some out-there crossovers, twists and modern updates, Archie comics will always represent a certain goofy teen dynamic. That is, until the gang gets a CW re-imagining for Riverdale, in which a buff Archie has a dark secret, a tense rivalry with “emo hearthtrob” Jughead, and an Adderall-addicted Betty. Come, join our descent into madness.
The past year has seen an exponential rise in comic book TV shows, already on air with the likes of 'The Flash,' 'Gotham' and 'Constantine,' with 'Supergirl,' 'Daredevil' and many more to follow, but the latest comic series from producer Greg Berlanti is decidedly less super. Prepare for Archie, Jughead, Betty, Veronica and more to get their own live-action series, as FOX begins prepping its new 'Riverdale' drama!
Comic book movies are all the rage, but we never thought we'd see the day when those wholesome 'Archie' comics became a live-action movie -- much less with zombies.
