After a teenager was murdered within the town of Riverdale, a group of teenagers, the jock Archie, the girl next door Betty, the new girl Veronica and the outcast Jughead try to unravel the evils lurking within this seemingly innocent town. An American teen drama television programme called Riverdale is based on the Archie Comics characters. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the chief creative officer of Archie Comics, adapted the series for The CW. The show is made by Warner Bros. Television and CBS Studios in collaboration with Berlanti Productions and Archie Comics.

The community of Riverdale is still in shock over the sad death of high school valedictorian Jason Blossom as the new academic year gets underway, and nothing feels the same. Despite the abrupt end of his prohibited connection with Riverdale’s young music teacher, Ms. Grundy, Archie Andrews is still the all-American teenager who has come to the realisation that he wants to pursue a career in music rather than follow in his father’s footsteps. As a result, Archie lacks a mentor.
Particularly, singer Josie McCoy, whose band, the soon-to-be famous Pussycats, is her entire priority. All of this, along with his strained connection with aspiring writer and classmate Jughead Jones, are weighing heavily on Archie’s mind. Betty Cooper, the girl next door, is eager to see Archie after spending the summer away, but she isn’t quite ready to tell him she loves him. In addition, there are other factors preventing Betty from moving on, including her frazzled mother Alice.
There is an evident chemistry between Veronica Lodge and Archie when she returns in town from New York with her mother Hermione, despite the fact that Veronica doesn’t want to jeopardise her new friendship with Betty by going for Archie. Finally, there is Cheryl Blossom. The Queen Bee of Riverdale is content to cause conflict between Archie, Betty, and Veronica, but Cheryl has her own dark secrets.
After receiving a pitch from Jason Moore and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa that included Archie’s group in a John Hughes-style teen comedy feature picture, Warner Bros. started work on an Archie feature film in 2013. The two brought the film to Warner Bros., where a VP suggested casting Louis C. K. to play an older Archie and suggested a higher-concept direction involving time travel or interdimensional portals. The project was later put on hold as the studio’s focus switched to making bigger tentpole movies and was redesigned as a television series with Dan Lin and Roy Lee serving as producers.
