Archie comics. But like ‘edgy’ archie comics.
Yes eyebrows were raised when the CW announced that it was adapting the beloved and very twee Archie comic books into an edgy teen drama.
The new character description of our hero Archie being:
“An intense, conflicted teen, a boyish high school sophomore who got pumped up over the summer working construction and is now juggling the interest of several girls, as well as trying to balance his passion for writing and performing music—against the wishes of his father and his football coach.”
And the much talked about casting of Cole Spouse as iconic ‘Jug-Head Jones’ who’s described as
“A philosophically bent heartthrob who was once the best friend of Archie, who is still dealing with the rift that came between them.”
