[ # ] 5 Things You Should Know About The CW’s Riverdale
January 26th, 2017 under The CW

Tonight at 9p on The CW, Archie Comics is getting a modern retell in Riverdale and there are some things you should know about the teenage murder mystery before it airs. Here’s what the producers and cast told about the show at The CW’s TCA Winter Press Day!

1 – According to Producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa they originally wanted him to travel through time. When that idea didn’t seem to work, they thought about having him travel through portals. They laughed off that idea until they suggested to make Archie Louis CK and the episode should be like Entourage. As we know, all of those ideas did not happen. Thankfully, they met with Producer extraordinaire Greg Berlanti who suggested it be a coming of age story with a “dead body.”

2 – Beverly Hills, 90210’s Luke Perry describes it as, “A little bit of a Peach Pit vibe, but kind of a freaky Peach Pit, you know, scary, textured, intricate Peach Pit.”

3 – Josie and the Pussycats Dolls are on the show too and next week the rework The Archies’ classic song Sugar, Sugar.

4 – Next season, if the show gets picked up, we will see another character from Arhcie Comics, Sabrina the Teen Witch. She will be nothing like the character Melissa Joan Hart played, instead she will be more like Rosemary’s Baby. Whatever that means.

5 – Cole Sprouse, who plays Jughead, had come off of a three week binge of The Twilight Zone when he auditioned for the role, so he channeled his inner Rod Sterling when he read for the part. As you can guess the Producers liked it!

Just like you will like the show that debuts tonight.
