As some of you may already know, Stranger Things' Barb is coming to Riverdale. Well, not exactly Barb herself(I love Barb!!), but rather actress Shannon Purser, who is set to guest-star on The CW’s dark take on Archie Comics.
We're enjoying an Archie renaissance these days, with the age-old high school tale getting everything from a modern-day comic reboot to a zombie-centric horror offshoot. There's also a TV series, though it could've turned out very different.
The new television series Riverdale, which is based on Archie Comics, is getting its own comic book adaptation. The new comic is not to be confused with Mark Waid’s modern-day reboot comic, simply titled Archie.
As if Afterlife With Archie and the successful new comic relaunch of the flagship series weren’t enough, The CW is also putting together a live-action spin on the classic Archie comic, dubbed Riverdale. Now we finally have some juicy details.
With sci-fi faves like The Flash and iZombie already on the schedule, The CW is showing no signs of slowing down when it comes to genre material — and up next they’re mining some franchises that should sound familiar.
