Riverdale – Dark Teen Drama – You On Board?


Many new promos have come out for CW’s new Riverdale series. It’s been described as Twin Peaks meets teen drama. Archie himself is being played by KJ Apa. Most people have said that the show sounds edgy and dark and are excited. Others are saying it sounds interesting but want a balance between fun and mystery. Still even others want a much more light and funny series similar to the comic book.


We will have Josie and the Pussycats in the series, which is awesome! Maybe a spin off series could take place for a couple of the characters that have gotten their own comic book series. The cast seems great and of course they all very much a CW teen show. Which means all the teen actors are in the 20s and 30s and are very sexual. Sex sells, so it makes sense.


Also, Casey Cott has been cast as the gay character Kevin Keller. The actor is very excited about the show himself from his Tweets. Follow him at: Twitter.com/CaseyCott. I am excited to see how his story unfolds. Hopefully Kevin will not be ignored and will be a big part of the story. Honestly, I think Casey Cott is hotter than the actor playing Archie.

What do you think so far? You liking it or is this going to be ignored on your radar? I’m going it a shot myself and I hope it’ll play out great!

    Looks like it’s trying too hard.

    Okay, first the Negative Nancy bitching to get out of the way: in that promo picture, Archie’s hair looks like a bad dye job, and he’s making the sort of face you’d expect to see on a surly goth kid.

    That being said, I will watch this, at least to get a feel for the series. I am actually excited, even though this COULD go horribly, horribly wrong. Nevertheless, it can work as a CW series.

    And Josie as a black woman? Hellz to the yes!

    I love the Kevin keller solo comics. Read all of the characters Archie collections too. So I’ve been following that this show was coming for a while. I’m excited for it even if I’d want something lighter. if ot captures the essense of the characters then I’m sold. I love mysteries too. Plus so happy to see Josie and The Pussycats will be in it. Hoping for some original songs that way. I’d be very about it.

    I’ll give it a shot. I seems like it could be interesting. I hope they give Kevin Keller a substantial story. He’s the reason I started reading Archie comics after a very, very long absence.

What are your thoughts?
