Riverdale season 2 teaser

Two seasons of Riverdale in a single year is a kind gift from The CW. The series, based on the famous Archie comics, quickly found its groove in season one and kept getting better and better. The finale ended season one on a high note with a few surprises and shocks tying up loose ends and setting up storylines for season two – which looks like it’s going to get a little darker. As one critic says in the new teaser for Riverdale, it’s an “invitingly dark” series. It can get bleak, but rarely dark enough to lessen the fun. It’s a balance well struck in the first season of the series, and the Riverdale season 2 teaser promises more of the same.

Rocko's Modern Life - Comic-Con TV Trailers

We’re still recovering from the insanity that is San Diego Comic-Con. Because there are so many movies and TV shows that get promoted at the massive pop culture convention, we simply don’t have the time to report on each and every one of them by attending all the panels that unfolded. But we still wanted to highlight some of the big shows with new footage to show off for fans.

So we’ve rounded up a slew of new trailers for upcoming TV shows, both returning and new programs, ranging from revivals of Nicktoons like Rocko’s Modern Life and Hey Arnold! to freshman shows like The Orville and Future Man, returning shows like Once Upon a Time and Doctor Who, and plenty more Comic-Con TV trailers from the 2017 convention.

Riverdale season 2

Archie and friends just wrapped up one insane year of High School. In the Riverdale season finale alone, enough happened for Archie, Jughead, Veronica, and Betty to call it a rough year. There were good times, too, but “The Sweet Hereafter” suggests the bad times are far from over. Below, find out everything we know about Riverdale season two.

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.

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.

Below, watch the new Riverdale preview.

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.

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.
