Riverdale is a new TV drama based on the characters from the Archie Comics. The show follows its teen characters, Archie, Betty, Veronica and Jughead, as they begin to discover dangers and darkness present within the town.

Archie is the all-American teen in pursuit of a music career; girl-next-door Betty is anxious to see her crush Archie after him being away for the summer; new girl Veronica creates some sparks with Archie. Then there’s Riverdale’s Queen Bee and golden boy’s twin, Cheryl, who loves to stir up trouble between the trio and seems to be hiding something about her brother.
The series is written and executive produced by Greg Berlanti (Flash and Arrow) and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Supergirl and Glee).
