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.

Now set to premiere Thursday, January 26, Riverdale is described as a “surprising and subversive” take on Archie comics, including the title character, Betty, Veronica and the whole gang. Among the cast, there’s Lili Reinhart Cole Sprouse, Ashleigh Murray, Luke Perry, KJ Apa, Madelaine Petsch, Camila Mendes, Marisol Nichols and Twin Peaks alum Mädchen Amick.

Watch the first trailer (via Entertainment Weekly) above, while so reads the synopsis:

The live-action series offers a bold, compelling take on Archie, Betty, Veronica, and their friends, exploring small-town life and the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome facade. The show will focus on the eternal love triangle of Archie Andrews, girl-next-door Betty Cooper, and rich socialite Veronica Lodge, and will include the entire cast of characters from the comic books—including Archie’s rival, Reggie Mantle, and his slacker best friend, Jughead Jones.

The Twin Peaks vibe is certainly front and center, but is Riverdale primed for a fresh take on the Archie world?
