riverdale season 2

The highly enjoyable television adaptation of the Archie comics, Riverdale, has been renewed for a second season. Archie, Veronica, Betty, and Jughead’s highs and lows at Riverdale High are now officially far from over. Riverdale is about halfway through its 13-episode first season, but it’s great to hear it also won’t be its last. While the central mystery of season one – the death of Jason Blossom – has yet to be solved, some fans of the show, such as myself, already wouldn’t mind seeing other seasons with Archie and his charismatic friends navigating the sinister town of Riverdale.

Let’s talk about the Riverdale season two details and why you really should be watching this show.

The Flash Supergirl

Last year there was a crossover between Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, The Flash, and Arrow. The crossover event, titled “Invasion!”, began with Supergirl and ended with Legends of Tomorrow, with The Flash and Arrow nice and comfy around the middle. The heroes teamed up to defeat the Dominators, but little of the action was featured in Supergirl, so it wasn’t the huge four-way crossover some fans were anticipating.

Below, learn why you should expect a bigger CW crossover next time.

riverdale preview

Riverdale is a town no one should ever want to visit. In this dreary, evil setting, the four leads — Archie, Betty, Veronica, and Jughead — know they can depend on each other, but they have to watch who else they choose to trust in The CW’s adaptation of the Archie comics. One character not to be trusted, Ms. Grundy (Sarah Habel), reveals her dark past in this week’s episode. The promo for episode four from season one teases the truth about Archie’s music teacher — but it doesn’t illustrate how much the show has improved since the pilot.

sabrina the teenage witch riverdale

Josie and the Pussycats appeared in the first episode of The CW’s Riverdale, which is becoming more entertaining. The group is working on their look, and trying to tell their story through their music. Publisher Archie Comics introduced them to comic book readers in 1963. A year earlier, another famous character from Archie Comics, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, made her debut in Archie’s Madhouse #22. Writer George Gladir and artist Dan DeCarlo‘s character went on to have an animated show and a ’90s sitcom, but like Josie and the Pussycats, will she ever show her face in the creepy town of Riverdale? The show’s creator, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, says it’s a possibility.

Below, learn more about the potential of seeing Sabrina the Teenage Witch in Riverdale.

legends of tomorrow

I haven’t been keeping up with The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow (there are only so many hours in a day!), but the news that a young George Lucas would be a character in the back half of season 2 is the kind of thing that makes me want to track down and utilize a some extra television time in my life. The episode, titled “Raiders of the Lost Art,” aired last night as the second season’s winter premiere and executive producer Marc Guggenheim explained how this crazy idea to pass.

Archie is under a lot of pressure in the messy Riverdale pilot. He can’t get over what happened between him Miss Grundy and he clashes with his dad (Luke Perry), as he struggles between going into the family business or pursuing his musical aspirations. The town of Riverdale is even worse off, following the death of Jason Blossom. There’s a lot of angst and misery going on in Riverdale, which gets off to a rough start but isn’t without potential.

Time Traveling Archie Movie

In case you haven’t heard, the classic comic character Archie is coming to The CW in the form of a TV series called Riverdale. It’s a modern, dark approach to the source material that has Archie (KJ Apa), Betty (Lili Reinhart), Veronica (Camila Mendes), Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse), Josie (Ashleigh Murray) and more dealing with a death in their small town, secrets waiting to be discovered, and something dark and dangerous biding its time.

It’s a far cry from the original Archie comics that fans are used to, but there was a brief moment when the pitch for a project adapting these characters for the screen would have been drastically different. Believe it or not, there was a time when Riverdale could have been a movie starring Louis C.K. as a time-traveling Archie.
