With shows like “Arrow”, “ The Flash”, and freshman series “Legends of Tomorrow”, all based on or inspired by comic books doing so well on The CW the network has decided to give another classic comic hero a shot on the small screen. Unlike the other shows this hero doesn’t spend his free time trying to save the world he’s just trying to make it out of high school and survive a decades old love triangle. That’s right Archie Andrews and the whole gang has just received a pilot order to film “Riverdale”.
“The live-action series offers a bold, subversive 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 sounds promising and since it will be a hour long drama instead of a comedy we can only guess how far the CW will take us into the mind of the modern teenager. Its been a while since we’ve seen a “normal” teen drama on the CW and I for one will welcome everyone in Riverdale into my home.
What do you think about Archie and the gang coming to the CW?
