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.

Starring K.J. Apa, Cole Sprouse, Camila Mendes, Lili Reinhart, Ross Butler and more, “Riverdale” is set to premiere on Thursday, 26 January 2017 at 9pm on The CW channel.

There’s no definite release date set for Asia yet, but since Netflix has supposedly acquired the international rights to distribute the series, then viewers in this part of the world might be able to see a new episode each week a day after its U.S. release!
