Archie Comics are never going to need Kickstarter money ever again! Hot on the heels of the successful debut of Riverdale, the CW TV show that reimagines the Archie Comics characters as sexy teens in a grim and gritty drama, the publisher will officially partner with Warner Bros for even more sexy teen Archie dramas in the future, according to a report from THR. It's not specified that the shows will air on the CW network, but let's be honest, that's where they're going to end up, as the network continues its mission to fill its schedule with nothing but comic book programming.
"Archie is unique in that we have a huge library of characters that are not only recognizable, but they're successful and entertaining," said Archie CEO Jon Goldwater in what must be a dig at either Marvel or DC, but we're not sure which. Maybe both!
According to Goldwater, everything is on the table, with even obscure Archie properties like Katy Keene or the Dark Circle superheroes eligible to rebooted as sexy teenagers for television (though, let's be honest, we're most likely to get Sabrina and Josie and the Pussycats first). Personally, we'd like to see a dramatization of the real-life founding families of Archie Comics, the Goldwaters and the Silberkleits, reimagined as families of sexy teen vampires feuding throughout the centuries. Make it happen, Warner Bros!
