At SDCC, the crew behind the upcoming CW adaptation of the Archie comics series, titled Riverdale, took the stage to unveil some of what you can expect. Though they assure you it’s still the Archie you know in many ways:
“It’s definitely ‘Archie,’ but a little darker, a little more complex and a little weirder than you might remember from the digest you bought at the supermarket,” said said Executive Producer and Archie Comics Chief Creative Officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa
“We’re going to follow all the twists and turns of that but of course it’s ‘Archie,’ it’s ‘Riverdale,’ it’s The CW,” Aguirre-Sacasa said after a screening of the pilot at SDCC. “There’s going to be a lot of romances and I can tell you that most of the people [on this panel] will become involved with each other.”
And they confirmed that Betty and Veronica will kiss at some point.
