As a new school year begins, the town of Riverdale is reeling from the recent, tragic death of
high school golden boy Jason Blossom — and nothing feels the same… Archie Andrews (KJ
Apa) is still the all-American teen, but the summer’s events made him realize that he wants to
pursue a career in music — not follow in his dad’s footsteps—despite the sudden end of his
forbidden relationship with Riverdale’s young music teacher, Ms. Grundy (Sarah Habel). Which
means Archie doesn’t have anyone who will mentor him — certainly not singer Josie McCoy
(Ashleigh Murray), who is only focused on her band, the soon-to-be-world-famous Pussycats.
It’s all weighing heavily on Archie’s mind — as is his fractured friendship with budding writer
and fellow classmate Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse). Meanwhile, girl-next-door Betty Cooper
(Lili Reinhart) is anxious to see her crush Archie after being away all summer, but she’s not
quite ready to reveal her true feelings to him. And Betty’s nerves – which are hardly soothed by
her overbearing mother Alice (Mädchen Amick) aren’t the only thing holding her back. When a
new student, Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes), arrives in town from New York with her mother
Hermione (Marisol Nichols), there’s an undeniable spark between her and Archie, even though
Veronica doesn’t want to risk her new friendship with Betty by making a play for Archie. And
then there’s Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch)… Riverdale’s Queen Bee is happy to stir up
trouble amongst Archie, Betty, and Veronica, but Cheryl is keeping secrets of her own. What,
exactly, is she hiding about the mysterious death of her twin brother, Jason? Riverdale may look
like a quiet, sleepy town, but there are dangers in the shadows… Based on the characters from
Archie Comics, RIVERDALE is from Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios, in
association with Berlanti Productions, with executive producers Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa
(“Supergirl,” “Glee”), Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “DC’s Legends of
Tomorrow”), Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “DC’s Legends of
Tomorrow”) and Jon Goldwater (Archie Comics).
