Archie Comics comes to life in first photos from the set of ‘Riverdale’

75 years after his debut in PEP COMICS #22, Archie Andrews is getting a whole new dimension. A third one! In case you haven”t heard Archie Comics with teaming up with The CW to bring the iconic red-headed teen to life in Riverdale.

Executive producer Greg Berlanti is taking a short break from single-handedly reviving television superheroes to go back to his teen dramedy roots. Riverdale will take cues from the critically-acclaimed 2015 relaunch of Archie Comics. With the cast in place – including the transformation of K.J. Apa into Archie Andrews – the only thing left to do is wait.

But The CW and Archie are merciful. Today they released a handful of photos from the set. Fans can get their first look at Pop”s Shop and Riverdale High. No peek yet at the beach, Pickens” Park, or the Riverdale Mall yet. I suppose they can”t give it ALL away up front.

The pilot for Riverdale is currently in production. Here's hoping they get picked up!
