Riverdale: Could Sabrina The Teenage Witch Show Up In This Dark, Weird Drama?

3 February 2017 12:10 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Riverdale is a CW show that I’ve had my eye on since it was first announced. While I’m not the most familiar with the comics on which it is based, I do know one thing: they are wholesome as f***. So when I heard The CW would be adapting it with a dark, Twin Peaks-esque edge to it, wherein the wholesome town has a seedy underbelly, I was intrigued.

I was especially surprised when watching the pilot and I saw Josie and the Pussycats on screen. Yes, they are a part of the Archie Comics, but for some reason, I expected Riverdale to stick to the main four of Archie, Jughead, Betty, and Veronica. With Josie and the Pussycats already there on the sidelines, who knows who else we could expect?

A new report from TheWrap is now saying that Sabrina the Teenage Witch may even be »

Sabrina Not Ruled Out For Riverdale Season 1, New Extended Promo Released

3 February 2017 9:32 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Although Riverdale is only two episodes in, that hasn’t stopped anyone from wondering what’s further down the line. Heck, there was spinoff talk circulating before the pilot even aired.

As we said in the past, if there’s any character occupying the Archie universe worthy of headlining their own series that wouldn’t leave a substantial void in Riverdale itself, Sabrina the Teenage Witch undoubtedly tops the list. And apparently, we aren’t the only ones thinking so, as TheWrap recently brought her up when speaking with showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who teased that she could be showing up sooner than expected:

“We could [see her in Season 1. As I say, never say never, but it’s certainly within the realm of possibility.”

What he had to say next did nothing but add fuel to the spinoff fire:

“As dark as ‘Riverdale’ is, the vision for Sabrina is even darker. Riverdale is on one side of the Sweetwater River and Greendale, where Sabrina lives, is on the other. »

Josie and the Pussycats perform ‘Sugar, Sugar’ in clip from tomorrow’s Riverdale

1 February 2017 12:09 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The CW has released a clip from tomorrow’s second episode of Riverdale  ‘A Touch of Evil’ which sees Josie and the Pussycats perform a new version of the iconic 1969 hit ‘Sugar, Sugar’.

“The hit song ‘Sugar, Sugar’ has always been a huge part of Archie’s history, so we knew we had to include it in Riverdale in some way,” said executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. “Since Archie’s just starting his musical journey when we meet him, we thought it would be a fun reinvention to have Josie and the Pussycats perform an updated version of ‘Sugar, Sugar’ — with an assist from Riverdale High’s cheerleaders and resident mean girl Cheryl Blossom.”

Mike Gold: Archie Gets Laid!

First Spoiler Alert: This week’s column is going to reveal all sorts of dark, nasty, sinister and provocative stuff about the new Riverdale series on The CW. If you haven’t seen the show and you intend to do so and you’re not going to be illegally downloading it, you might want to avoid the considerable amount of wit and wisdom that follows.

Second Spoiler Alert: The aforementioned wit and wisdom will implant an image in your brain that you may never be able to get rid of. You have been warned!

Archie Andrews has sex with Miss Grundy in the back seat of a Volkswagen.

I guess I should applaud any 75-year old dude who gets to have sex with his high school teacher. And maybe I do, except that Geraldine Grundy did commit statutory rape. Then again, Archie’s probably tired of being harassed by Waldo »

Evolution of Archie, From 1940s Comics to CW’s ‘Riverdale’ (Photos)

26 January 2017 5:08 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Archie Andrews made his comic book debut in 1941, drawn by artist Bob Montana. The character’s iconic design remained largely unchanged for more than 70 years. After Jon Goldwater, CEO of Archie Comics and the son of the character’s original creator, took control of the company, he made the shocking decision to kill off the character in 2014. The following year, the entire franchise was rebooted with a more modern look drawn by artist Fiona Staples. New Zealander newcomer K. J. Apa is the newest face of the redheaded teen in The CW’s “Riverdale,” from Archie Comics’ Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and executive. »

Betty And Kevin Peep On Archie In New Riverdale Clip

26 January 2017 10:52 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Knowing that the much anticipated series premiere of Riverdale is mere hours away from hitting airwaves, it comes an no surprise that yet another full clip has hit the web. Interestingly enough, it’s slightly different from the darker, moodier tone given by most promo material offered to date.

In it, we’re granted a bit of levity that shows the spirit of classic Archie comic books remains in this series. As Betty Cooper and Kevin Keller discuss the former’s upcoming date with Archie Andrews, speak of the devil, the ginger-haired young man is changing his clothes in the window directly next door, as if on cue. Being highly reminiscent of scenes from films such as Scream and American Beauty, one has to wonder how someone wouldn’t notice others peeping a stone’s throw away.

‘Riverdale’ Showrunner: Love Triangle Will Be Resolved in Series Finale

26 January 2017 10:21 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The Archie-Betty-Veronica love triangle will continue to live on in The CW’s new take on the classic comic book characters, according to “Riverdale” showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. However, don’t expect to see two girls fighting over some dude as the overwhelming storyline, even though it was the linchpin of the comic books for 75 years. “It was much more important for me to have Betty and Veronica be real friends, not bitchy frenemies,” Aguirre-Sacasa told TheWrap. “The truth is, Archie , Betty and Veronica will all have romantic storylines that don’t lock us into the love triangle »

‘Riverdale’ Review: Weird ‘Archie’ Update is an Exciting Blend of The CW’s Superheroes and Soap

26 January 2017 9:37 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Archie may have been born as a comic book character, but it was Greg Berlanti and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa who gave him a superhero physique. That is not a critique, but it is perhaps the first thing you might notice about the CW’s new take on the 76-year-old all-American high schooler, now making his live action television debut.

In fact, that might be the easiest way to describe it. And yet there’s just enough happening underneath the surface to make it worthy of deeper study. This is no zombie corpse of a comic book adaptation. »

'Riverdale' Review: Archie and the Gang Get a Dramatic Makeover in the New CW Series

25 January 2017 10:00 PM, PST | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

The CW has enjoyed a great deal of success adapting comic books into television series (Arrow, The Flash), and the network is obviously hoping to strike gold again with its latest adaptation, Riverdale. The series is based on the Archie comics which feature Archie Andrews -- whose most distinguishing feature is his fiery red hair -- and a host of other characters who inhabit the small, idyllic town of Riverdale, Anywhere USA. The show's writer/executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has stripped away everything overtly wholesome about Archie and the gang and replaced it with cynicism and millennial sensibility, and Riverdale is more Norman Bates than Norman Rockwell

The Archie comics have evolved over time, introducing new storylines and characters to keep Archie relevant (if at times ridiculous), but arguably nobody has taken it in such a subversive direction as Aguirre-Sacasa. Riverdale has the makings of an intriguing teen drama but gets mired in gimmicks. »

'Riverdale': How The CW Is Making Archie Relevant (Again)

25 January 2017 11:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

The CW is looking to reinvent the teen drama with a cast of familiar characters: Archie and his pals Betty, Veronica and Jughead.

With Riverdale, Archie Comics chief creative officer and showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has been inspired by the tone of John Hughes and executive producer Greg Berlanti's Dawson's Creek and aims to tell a relatable story that appeals to teenagers as well as their parents. 

The series is set in the present day and has been described as subversive take on Archie (Kj Apa), Betty (Lili ReinhartSurviving Jack), Veronica (Camila Mendes), Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse, The Suite Life »

Riverdale Season 1 Review

23 January 2017 12:29 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Two episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

Although opinions surrounding The CW’s adaptation of the classic Archie Comics will vary depending on your devotion to said comics (or, like me, your complete lack of knowledge of them), one thing can not be denied about Riverdale: it passes The CW’s long-standing Hot Young Cast Test. Like token Gbf Kevin Keller (Casey Cott) gushes to Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) early on in the premiere, “Archie got hot – he has abs now, six of them!”

That shouldn’t be the deciding factor for whether a television show is good or not, and like other series on the network (namely The 100), Riverdale starts off somewhat cheesily while managing to show major promise for the future. It’s pure teen angst pureed into a weird mix of wholesome dialogue (“Archie is swell,” Kevin says right before counting his abdominal muscles one by »

Riverdale Ongoing Series Resolicited For April

23 January 2017 10:53 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In addition to a prequel one-shot and Free Comic Book Day offering, Archie fans have much more to look forward to when the new Riverdale ongoing series launches this spring.

Written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and some of the folks currently working on the new TV show, one can only assume that this tie-in series will expand on characters in ways its small screen counterpart may not have time for in addition to telling interesting new stories.

With comic book adaptations being the cock of the walk in both movies and TV these days, there have certainly been no shortage of tie-in books to hit the market in an attempt to satisfy fans on multiple fronts. Many cancelled series have lived on through the comic book medium such as The X-Files, Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, Charmed and Smallville, not to mention currently running series such as Arrow or the upcoming 24: Legacy enjoying a similar boost. »

With 'Riverdale,' Which Other Archie Comics Characters Could Make It to TV Next?

23 January 2017 10:15 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Riverdale, The CW's sexy, murder-mystery featuring your favorite archetypal characters from Archie Comics, debuts this week. But while you're probably familiar with redheaded Archie (played by Kj Apa), his blonde next-door neighbor Betty (Lili Reinhart), new brunette in town Veronica (Camila Mendes) and Bff Jughead (Cole Sprouse), there are plenty of other characters in the Archie universe who could carry their own shows. 

Riverdalecreator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who also serves as the chief creative officer of Archie Comics, recently told reporters that he's absolutely interested in creating a whole Archie world—including projects involving other characters.

TV Review: The CW Updates Archie Comics With ‘Riverdale’

23 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With all due respect to the Eagles: On TV, high school is the real Hotel California. You can and probably did check out years ago, but television of every genre makes sure that you never escape it. The pressure cooker of nascent adulthood, structured days, uncertain futures, and wildly fluctuating hormones makes for a well of creativity with endless iterations — teenage superheroes, deadly secrets, pop music covers, introspective voiceover.

Riverdale,” the CW’s new teen drama based on the Archie comics, is an eerie and offbeat take on the high school mythos — both addictive and confusing in equal parts. Its incredibly attractive leads, secret backstories, complex buried relationships, and unreliable, unethical adults are reminiscent of Freeform’s “Pretty Little Liars” and the CW’s “Gossip Girl.” But where those shows, and most teen shows, serve as titillating coming-of-age narratives, hovering between the wholesome bubble of innocence and the seductive call of the wider adult world, “Riverdale »

What leaps to mind whenever someone mentions Archie comics? Teenagers crammed into a jalopy, driving to the soda shop? A romantic rivalry between girl-next-door Betty and spoiled rich kid Veronica? Bubblegum pop hits like "Sugar, Sugar?" Jughead's stupid hat?
