For real? There's an “Archie” TV series?
But hey, that fun-loving Archie and gang you once knew are no more!
|Say bye bye to the comic and animated version of Archie and the gang...|
|Say hello to your new millennial Archie Andrews.|
Instead of "Archie", the show will be called "Riverdale", and yup as per the comics it's the exact Riverdale where Archie and the gang call home!
Since this won't be an animated series, the real-life cast will be made up of K.J. Apa as Archie Andrews, Cole Sprouse as Jughead Jones, Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper, Camila Mendes as Veronica Lodge, Madelaine Petsch as Cheryl Blossom, Ashleigh Murray as Josie McCoy, Luke Perry as Fred Andrews, and Casey Cott as Kevin Kellar.
OK, let us just take a quick pause here to tell you that Jughead is played by another one of your childhood idols; Cole Sprouse, yes, THAT Sprouse twin from Disney's "The Sweet Life of Zack and Cody"!
|Meet Archie, Veronica, Jughead and Betty.|

Whoa, where were all of these parts in the comics?!
If you are lucky enough to attend the San Diego Comic Con happening this weekend in the U.S.A. then we heard that the pilot episode will be screened for lucky fans!
But... if you're stuck in Asia like the rest of us are, then at least you have this exclusive Comic Con poster of the series to feast your eyes upon!
