RiverdaleThe second season of Riverdale will introduce a new mystery as the identity of the individual who orchestrated the shooting of Archie’s father remains unsolved.

In an interview with TVLine, series star Marisol Nichols, who portrays Hermione Lodge, discussed the upcoming introduction of the mysterious Hiram Lodge.

Nichols discussed how Hiram will stand out among the cast of characters:

“He’s a very powerful and dangerous character, so when he comes to Riverdale, he’s not exactly going to blend in!”

Nichols also explained why actor Mark Consuelo was perfectly cast in the role:

“[He] is exactly what I pictured Hiram to be in my mind!”

As the town breathed a collective sigh of relief that Jason’s killer had been found out, another terrible crime occurred, in a space that had been considered one of the town’s safest, most innocent places. If Jason Blossom’s murder revealed the slimy underbelly beneath Riverdale’s surface, as we enter Season Two, the shooting of Fred Andrews threatens to plunge the entire town into utter darkness. Based on the characters from Archie Comics, RIVERDALE is from Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios, in association with Berlanti Productions, with executive producers Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (“Supergirl,” “Glee”), Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”), Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”) and Jon Goldwater (Archie Comics).

The second season of Riverdale will air on Wednesdays at 8:00 pm ET on The CW starting on October 11, 2017.

10 Independent Comics Perfect For TV

Independent Comics
I really don’t understand why so many great, independent comics are being ignored by Hollywood executives.

Marvel and DC dominated television in 2016 with the Arrowverse bringing the Legends of Tomorrow into the mix and Netflix adding both Jessica Jones and Luke Cage to their expanding list of original titles.  Comic book films also did well in the box office last year, even if the critics weren’t always too happy, so it seems  from an investment perspective comic book properties are still a good bet.  Independent comics are full of characters and concepts that have the potential to become the next big thing.   Fortunately, with Valiant’s recent announcement of an online Ninjak series and FX finally naming a show runner for their Y:The Last Man adaptation, it seems comic fans have a lot to look forward to in the years ahead.

Here’s a list of 10 more comics ripe for the silver screen. Click Next to start!
