New Series 'Riverdale' is a Far-Cry from Archie Comics
We're all in on this darker take on Betty, Veronica, and co.
Comments

In Riverdale, the CW's dark adaptation of the "Archie" comics, the gang's all here, but they're hardly how you remember them.

Archie, Jughead, Betty, and Veronica are still the key players (Josie, of Pussycats fame also makes an appearance), but in this "Archie meets Twin Peaks" reboot, the show centers around mystery and murder, and previews hint at promiscuous teens, Adderall abuse, a student-teacher relationship, and secrets in a small town.

And while the perfect casting of Archie's mom (she's played by quintessential ginger Molly Ringwald) was enough to pique our interest, what we're really excited to see is what the show does with the original rich bitch, Veronica, who quips in the trailer below, "I'm Breakfast at Tiffany's, but this place is strictly In Cold Blood."

"We've been saying it's not the same as the comics that you've been reading. It's a lot darker," KJ Apa, who plays an extremely toned Archie told Vulture. "We can't really compare it to anything on TV."

We can't wait.
