Riverdale Series Premiere (2017) Review

The CW’s latest show is set to be the next big teen drama (think Gossip Girl meets Pretty Little Liars).

It has everything a teen show should have- a hot cast, intriguing backstories, a major mystery and interesting characters.

Riverdale also has some major cultural roots in popular Archie Comics with Archie himself the central character of the show. Josie and the Pussycat fans will also have a frenzy as they make an appearance in the very first episode!

The fresh take aims to interpret Archie and his friends in a whole new light as they navigate small town life. But it’s not just your typical, angsty drama fueled town with a sinister murder driving the series. The town also looks pretty creepy TBH.

Ships are also bound to form, with the first episode already creating relationship dynamics between Archie, Betty and Veronica. So get ready to see all those online comments battling over who should be with who. But hey, what is a TV show without it?

It has a great feel to it and you know a show will be worth the watch when it has you intrigued from its opening scene.

The premiere already has us seriously hooked and we can’t wait to see the series unfold.
