Archie Comics and The CW via Just Jared took to Twitter to show the first looks at two of the central characters of their series Riverdale, which unlike the comics, will show a more realistic and gritty side of Archie and the gang.
New Zealand-born actor K.J. Apa has scored the lead role of Archie Andrews.
Cole Sprouse, one half of the twins from Big Daddy and The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, plays Jughead Jones.
The series also stars Lili Reinhardt as Betty Cooper, Camille Mendes as Veronica Lodge, and Luke Perry as Fred Andrews (Archie’s father). The series has begun filming and is set to premiere this fall on the CW Network.
