'Riverdale' Cast Starts Production in Vancouver; First Image Released!

'Riverdale' Cast Starts Production in Vancouver; First Image Released!

Check out the first image from The CW’s 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 summer’s events made him realize that he wants to pursue a career in music — not follow in his dad’s footsteps—despite the sudden end of his forbidden relationship with Riverdale’s young music teacher, Ms. Grundy (Sarah Habel).

Which means Archie doesn’t have anyone who will mentor him — certainly not singer Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray), who is only focused on her band, the soon-to-be-world-famous Pussycats. It’s all weighing heavily on Archie’s mind — 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 she’s not quite ready to reveal her true feelings to him. And Betty’s nerves – which are hardly soothed by her overbearing mother Alice (Madchen Amick) aren’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), there’s an undeniable spark between her and Archie, even though Veronica doesn’t want to risk her new friendship with Betty by making a play for Archie.

And then there’s Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch)… Riverdale’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 will air in 2017.

And so it begins. #Riverdale

Madelaine Petsch & Cole Sprouse Bring 'Riverdale' To Comic-Con

Cole Sprouse whips out his best red carpet pose while arriving for Entertainment Weekly’s Comic-Con Bash held at Float, Hard Rock Hotel on Saturday night (July 23) in San Diego, Calif.

The 23-year-old actor joined his Riverdale co-stars Madelaine Petsch, Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes, Luke Perry and KJ Apa at the party after stopping by SiriusXM’s Entertainment Weekly Radio Channel earlier in the day.

During 2016 San Diego Comic-Con, the cast opened up about the series, which debuts on The CW in October. Here are the highlights:

– The story is going to be a more serialized neo-noir format that revolves around murder in Riverdale that kicks off a lot of the action for the series.
– There’s no Betty vs. Veronica conflict. A friendship will be built between the characters, played by Lili and Camila, after Veronica transfers schools.
– Josie and the Pussycats will indeed be performing within the show

Madelaine also took over JJJ‘s Snapchat during the day and you can see all her Snaps below!
