Tonight, Riverdale returns to The CW to kick off the show’s third season. A lot happened last season, especially with the expanded 22-episode season! Betty discovered that her father was the real Black Hood – a serial killer that had been terrorizing the town – though there had also been a second copycat who had been hired by Hiram Lodge. Fred ran for mayor, and even though he had Veronica’s help to try to beat her mother, Hermione ultimately won the election. Meanwhile, Archie was in a political race of his own – he ran for student body president and won. Meanwhile, Veronica discovered his father’s plans to own the entire south side of town, and so she purchased the Whyte Wyrn before he had a chance to do so. She then traded the bar to her father in exchange for Pop’s Diner. Archie had had enough of Hiram and confronted him in his home at knife point, calling him out on all the people he had had a hand in murdering. However, it was all empty threats with Archie – he had no proof and didn’t even think to wear a wire to the confrontation. The next day at school, Jughead asked Betty to join the Serpents, proving that what her father had done hadn’t affected their relationship. Then, Archie was sworn in as class president, but before he could do anything, he was arrested for murder – Hiram had set him up!

I’m looking forward to seeing what happens this season. Will the teens once again find themselves embroiled in another murder mystery? Or else what other kind of evil or misfortune will befall the town of Riverdale this year? And what about Archie – how quickly will he be able to prove his innocence and get out of prison? Will he try to get revenge on Hiram afterwards? It should be another exciting season with lots of soapy twists and turns.

At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, I had the chance to speak with some of the cast about the upcoming season. You can check out my press room videos at NoReruns.net.

On tonight’s premiere, “Labor Day,” Archie makes a surprising request about how he wants to spend his final days of summer; Betty must deal with her problems head-on after a heated confrontation with Alice and Polly; Veronica pleads with Hiram to help Archie.

See if Archie gets the help he needs tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, American Housewife, Modern Family, Single Parents, A Million Little Things, Survivor, All American, and American Horror Story: Apocalypse.

Tonight, the new series Riverdale premieres on The CW. This live-action series is based on the characters from Archie Comics, but it looks like this version will be a much darker take on the material – kind of a Dawson’s Creek meets Twin Peaks. As the series opens, summer is coming to a close when the town of Riverdale experiences the tragic death of high school golden boy Jason Blossom. As the investigation into the mysterious death is underway, the new school year begins for aspiring musician Archie Andrews (KJ Apa, Shortland Street); budding writer Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse, The Suite Life on Deck); soon-to-be-famous singer Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray); girl-next-door Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart, Surviving Jack), who has a crush on Archie; new student from New York Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes); and Riverdale’s Queen Bee Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch), who is the twin sister of the deceased. Some of the other main/recurring characters include Riverdale’s young music teacher, Ms. Grundy (Sarah Habel, Rush); Archie’s father Fred (Luke Perry, Beverly Hills, 90210); Veronica’s mother Hermione (Marisol Nichols, Teen Wolf, 24); and Betty’s overbearing mother Alice (Mädchen Amick, Witches of East End).

What mysteries, dangers, and secrets lurk in the shadows of this seemingly quiet, sleepy little town? I’m really looking forward to finding out! I read a bunch of the Archie comics growing up, and this looks like an interesting, more modern approach to the material. At the same time, based on the trailers, it kind of reminds me of the type of shows I enjoyed on The WB in the 90s.

On tonight’s premiere, “Chapter One: The River’s Edge,” Riverdale reels from the tragic death of Jason Blossom, a high school student; new student Veronica Lodge arrives in town; Cheryl Blossom stirs up trouble among the others while keeping a few secrets of her own.

Meet the gang from Riverdale tonight on The CW at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, My Kitchen Rules, Top Chef, and Colony.
