Riverdale is an updated, edgy, live-action adaptation of the iconic Archie Comics series. Spoilers characterize it as “Betty and Veronica Mars.”
The Riverdale pilot began at FOX. The CW started developing it, once FOX decided not to move forward. Archie Chief Creative Officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is writing the pilot. Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash) is executive producing.
Back in November, we published Riverdale character descriptions. Archie is reportedly buff. Betty has self-esteem problems and abuses Adderall. Find out more, here.
