Two New Promo Spots for The CW's Dark Archie Series RIVERDALE
This new Riverdale series from The CW offers us a version of the classic Archie comic character that we've never seen before. This is a very dark and twisted reimagining of the classic characters, and today we have two new promos for the series that give us our best look yet at what's in store for us. The series comes from The Flash and Arrow producer Greg Berlanti, and I'm curious to see how it turns out.
Riverdale follows the main crew of Archie, Betty, Veronica and their friends, as they explore the surrealistic twists of small-town life, in addition to the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale's wholesome facade. Set in fictional town of Riverdale, N.Y., the drama will focus on the love triangle of Archie Andrews, girl-next-door Betty Cooper and rich socialite Veronica Lodge.
The entire cast of supporting characters, including Reggie Mantle, Archie's rival; Jughead Jones, Archie's best friend; Kevin Keller, a popular gay character; and Josie and the Pussycats; will also be featured and introduced.
It was recently announced that Molly Ringwald will be playing Archie's mom in the series. Riverdale premieres Thursday, January 26, 2017. Check out the new TV spots below and let us know if this looks like a series you'll want to tune into.
