Watch the extended trailer for The CW’s Riverdale TV Series!
The CW gave us a look at what is obviously a darker, more modern version of Riverdale in this 90 second extended trailer. A big fan of both classic, new Archie, and the Archie Horror comics, I for one am excited about the show. If the series can find a sort of halfway point between what the creators are doing in Afterlife and new Archie, the show could have tremendous potential. Can’t wait to see this young cast take on these classic roles, but especially looking forward to seeing Madchen Amick as Alice Cooper, really hope she gets enough screen time!
Welcome to Riverdale: A great place to get away with it all.
We’ve proud to debut an extended look at ‘Riverdale’, the new one-hour live-action drama based on the classic Archie Comics characters premiering January 26th, 2017 at 9/8c on The CW.
‘Riverdale’ is written by Archie Comics Chief Creative Officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and produced by Warner Brothers Studios and Berlanti Productions and has been described as a subversive take on the classic Archie mythos. Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schecter, Jon Goldwater, and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa serve as executive producers.
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 best friend, Jughead Jones.
‘Riverdale’ stars KJ Apa as Archie Andrews, Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper, Camila Mendes as Veronica Lodge, Ashleigh Murray as Josie McCoy, Luke Perry as Fred Andrews, Cole Sprouse as Jughead Jones, Madelaine Petsch as Cheryl Blossom, Ross Butler as Reggie Mantle, Casey Cott as Kevin Keller, Mädchen Amick as Alice Cooper, and Marisol Nichols as Hermione Lodge.
