“Riverdale” reveals characters posters for Archie and friends
The CW network has finally revealed the character posters for “Riverdale”, an upcoming American teen drama TV series based on the characters from everyone’s beloved Archie Comics.
Executive produced by Greg Berlanti who is known for several of his DC’s superhero titles like “The Flash”, “Arrow”, “Supergirl” and “Legends of Tomorrow”, fans can probably guess that the new live-action series will be a little bit different from the “Archie” comics and cartoons they grew up with.
