Check out this brand new poster for the upcoming series Riverdale!
Based on the Archie Comics, the CW adaptation follows Archie Andrews (KJ Apa), who is still the all-American teen, but the summerâ€™s events made him realize that he wants to pursue a career in music â€” not follow in his dadâ€™s footstepsâ€”despite the sudden end of his forbidden relationship with Riverdaleâ€™s young music teacher, Ms. Grundy (Sarah Habel).
Which means Archie doesnâ€™t have anyone who will mentor him â€” certainly not singer Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray), who is only focused on her band, the soon-to-be-world-famous Pussycats. Itâ€™s all weighing heavily on Archieâ€™s mind â€” as is his fractured friendship with budding writer and fellow classmate Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse).
Meanwhile, girl-next-door Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) is anxious to see her crush Archie after being away all summer, but sheâ€™s not quite ready to reveal her true feelings to him. And Bettyâ€™s nerves â€“ which are hardly soothed by her overbearing mother Alice (Madchen Amick) arenâ€™t the only thing holding her back.
When a new student, Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes), arrives in town from New York with her mother Hermione (Marisol Nichols), thereâ€™s an undeniable spark between her and Archie, even though Veronica doesnâ€™t want to risk her new friendship with Betty by making a play for Archie.
And then thereâ€™s Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch)… Riverdaleâ€™s Queen Bee is happy to stir up trouble amongst Archie, Betty, and Veronica, but Cheryl is keeping secrets of her own. What, exactly, is she hiding about the mysterious death of her twin brother, Jason?
Riverdale may look like a quiet, sleepy town, but there are dangers in the shadows.
Riverdale will air in 2017.
