It’s no surprise that CW’s Riverdale was renewed for a second season, even before the first season finale. The show originally aired on January 26, 2017, on the CW. The debut episode had 2.38 total million views with a Rotten Tomatoes score of 87% (a fresh rating). Riverdale follows the story of Archie Andrews (K.J. Apa), Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse), Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes) and Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) in their pursuit of who killed Jason Blossom (Trevor Stines). It has mystery, well-developed characters, interesting plots and characters that we know and have grown to love.
This is not your cartoon buddy, Archie Andrews. This is a full fledged teen with feelings and hormones. Everyone has some kind of dark past. Betty Cooper isn’t the perfect student but has a darker, crazier side that gets unleashed. Archie is having some private music lessons with a teacher that leads to more than just music. Even the adults are shady; Veronica Lodge’s mom, Hermione, deals with the local gang The Serpents in obtaining the old drive-inn. Jughead’s dad is the leader of the Serpents. Betty’s parents harbor a pretty nasty grudge against the Blossoms.
