And now for the mom's!

24 actress Marissa Nichols has been cast as Hermione Lodge who has returned to Riverdale after the scandal with Hiram (I can't wait to find out WTF this whole scandal is that caused Hiram to be imprisioned! )



Madchen Amick meanwhile has been cast as Betty's mom, Alice Cooper, who is now editor of the newspaper (which is kinda odd as that's usually what Reggie's dad does in the comics. But there's been no mention of the Mantle's so far! )

^Has Betty's mom's name always been "Alice Cooper"?

I've read a few of the recent ongoing Archie comics and they seemed decent.

Anybody remember "Archie's Weird Mysteries"?

I think that one was before my time.

Watched the intro on YouTube and chuckled at seeing "Pop's Video Cafe." You don't get any more '80s than that.

Archie's Weird Mysteries is pretty much what made me a fan of archie in the first place. After watching that series I started reading the comics and checking out the old series. I actually started re-watching it a few days ago lol, I think I only have two or three episodes left to watch.

As for this though I might give it a try but idk.

Reggie is a drunkard
Hiram and Hermione Lodge are divorced!
Jughead's addicted to caffiene instead of burgers and is no longer friends with Archie
Betty and Veronica aren't friends anymore either apparantly
Twinsest IS hinted at between Cheryl and Jason (who's death is a plot point in the pilot)

Oh and yes Betty's mom has always been Alice Cooper. Her father is Hal, Her brother is Chic, and her sister is Polly.

That makes sense. They're not exactly friends in the rebooted Archie comics either

Reggie, Moose and Dilton have been cast now. Reggie is being reduced to recurring character status for some reason. Hrm...

Daniel Yang is Dilton, Ross Butler is Reggie, and Cody Kearsley is Moose Mason

Somehow I had a feeling that Reggie would be asian..

The images below are Ross Butler and Cody Kearsley. Not finding one of Daniel Yang yet.

Kevin Keller has now been cast! He'll be played by unknown Casey Cott. This kid looks like he stepped out of the comics!

Barclay Hope (who I last saw as Lily's foster father in Once Upon A Time) and Nathalie Bolt (I think the only thing I've seen her in is District 9) have been cast as Cheryl Blossom's parents Clifford and Penelope.

In the comics Clifford is essentially Bill Gates. An uber rich, yet down to earth software designer. The Blossom's are richer than the Lodge's.

A series summary here as CW release their fall schedule info. The show will be midseason and it will kick off with Archie fresh out of a relationship with his music teacher

http://deadline.com/2016/05/the-cw-f...on-1201759334/

RIVERDALE — As a new school year begins, the town of Riverdale is reeling from the recent, tragic death of highschool golden boy Jason Blossom — and nothing feels the same… Archie Andrews (KJ Apa) is still the all-American teen, but the summer’s events made him realize that he wants topursue a career in music — not follow in his dad’s footsteps—despite the sudde nend of his forbidden relationship with Riverdale’s young music teacher, Ms.Grundy (Sarah Habel). Which means Archie doesn’t have anyone who will mentorhim — certainly not singer Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray), who is only focusedon her band, the soon-to-be-world-famous Pussycats. It’s all weighing heavily on Archie’s mind — as is his fractured friendship with budding writer and fellow classmate Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse). Meanwhile, girl-next-door Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) is anxious to see her crush Archie after being away all summer, but she’s not quite ready to reveal her true feelings to him. And Betty’s nerves – which are hardly soothed by her overbearing mother Alice (Mädchen Amick) aren’t the only thing holding her back. When a new student,Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes), arrives in town from New York with her mother bHermione (Marisol Nichols), there’s an undeniable spark between her and Archie,even though Veronica doesn’t want to risk her new friendship with Betty bymaking a play for Archie. And then there’s Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch)…Riverdale’s Queen Bee is happy to stir up trouble amongst Archie, Betty, and Veronica, but Cheryl is keeping secrets of her own. What, exactly, is she hiding about the mysterious death of her twin brother, Jason? Riverdale may look like a quiet, sleepy town, but there are dangers in the shadows… Basedon the characters from Archie Comics, RIVERDALE is from Warner Bros. Televisionand CBS Television Studios, in association with Berlanti Productions, withexecutive producers Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (“Supergirl,” “Glee”), Greg Berlanti(“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”), SarahSchechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”) andJon Goldwater (Archie Comics).
