Riverdale’s Archie, Jughead, Betty and Veronica may be hitting screens near you.
Fresh off the launch of the new CW series “Riverdale,” Archie Comics has signed an exclusive deal with Warner Bros. Television to develop more of their content for television and beyond, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Considering that “Riverdale” has been such a hit, Archie Comics hopes the deal might allow for further expansion, as DC Comics has done with series “Arrow,” “Flash” and “Supergirl.”
Archie CEO Jon Goldwater told The Hollywood Reporter that the partnership will extend “beyond the traditional Riverdale crew of Archie, Betty and Veronica as seen in the current CW series.” Which means we can possibly look forward to spin-offs featuring “America’s Queen of Pin-Ups and Fashions” Katy Keene, the superheroes of the company’s Dark Circle imprint, and Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
“Archie is unique in that we have a huge library of characters that are not only recognizable, but they’re successful and entertaining,” Goldwater told the publication.
There’s no word yet on when to expect new shows from Archie’s world.
