The CW’s Hot Archie Will Be Back for ‘Riverdale’ Season 2
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 CW confirmed as much Tuesday afternoon, adding Riverdale to the virtual truckload of series already returning for new seasons either in fall or early 2018. Still without renewals for the moment are The 100, iZombie and The Originals, while The Vampire Diaries comes to an end this Friday.
For those not yet attuned, Riverdale is described as a “surprising and subversive” take on Archie comics, featuring among its cast Lili Reinhart, Cole Sprouse, Ashleigh Murray, Luke Perry, KJ Apa, Madelaine Petsch, Camila Mendes, Marisol Nichols and Twin Peaks alum Mädchen Amick.
Josie and the band have already put in Riverdale appearances, with numerous suggestions that Sabrina might follow, but so what other Archie names might we see added to the murder pile in Season 2?
