‘Archie’ comics get the CW treatment in new ‘Riverdale’ trailer

CW has released their first look at upcoming series Riverdale, based on the Archie comics.

The newest trailer shows off what CW does best, drama, mystery, and of course, the all important topless male. Created by the people who brought you The Vampire Diaries and Gossip Girl, Riverdale brings to life the characters from one of the longest running brands in comic history, with a dark twist.

The show will re-introduce comic characters Archie, Betty, Veronica, and friends, and will depict the strange darkness lurking behind Riverdale’s wholesome exterior.

Riverdale premieres on CW in 2017 to coincide the Archie character’s 75th anniversary
