The show will feature Archie, played by KJ Apa, Betty, played by Lili Reinhart, Veronica, played by Camila Mendes, and their friends. They will explore the surrealism of small town life, as well as the darkness and weirdness beneath Riverdale’s facade.
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa will write and executive-produce alongside Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Jon Goldwater. Cole Sprouse, Ashleigh Murray, Luke Perry, Madelaine Petsch, Marisol Nichols, and Mädchen Amick will also star.
