The live teen drama “Riverdale” gets its season premiere this evening on The CW. It’s the show that I’ve discussed a couple of times when I shared the trailers and while the teaser was nothing to speak of, the extended one makes this seem like quite the curiosity of a show. Below is a photo of the cast sitting in that malt shop that they frequented in the comics and I have to say that they look pretty serious. It makes sense since the extended trailer showed a murder and some duplicity among the principle players. The cast and the folks they portray are below the photo.
It wasn’t long ago that I posted a teaser trailer for the upcoming teen drama on The CW called “Riverdale”. There wasn’t really much to it and it was under a minute in length but the show features characters that one finds in the “Archie” comics series. The show will begin in January and an extended trailer was released just the other day and I am sharing it with you all now. Check it out.
I must admit that I thought I was imagining things when I saw some posts about a live drama series coming to The CW that was going to feature characters from the “Archie” series of comic books. Teen dramas are not really the kind of shows that I would discuss here nor are the “Archie” comics line unless its something super special and different and I have to say that this is a little bit of both. The teaser trailer was posted the other day but since there were numerous items to get to your screens I am putting it up now. Take a look.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m going to reserve judgement for the moment and hope for a longer trailer before the series premiere in January 2017. Since this was not even a minute in length I think you can understand so please hold your own views back until we get a longer trailer. That’s not too much to ask right? I didn’t think so, so let’s close this one up and get back to the regularly scheduled stuff.
Ladies and gentlemen I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news but in the latest issue (#36) of the “Life With Archie” comic book published by Archie Comics, America’s true blue favorite perpetual teenager will meet with his demise. Commence shock now.
