In news that should surprise no one, news has come today from Deadline that The CW has officially ordered the Archie Comics adaptation Riverdale to series.

Archie-1The CW will announce their Fall 2016 schedule on May 18; it is expected that Riverdale — from super-producer Greg Berlanti and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa — will get a plum spot. It should be around that time that we’ll get the first trailer for the show.

Icons from the Archie Gang are all over the series pilot, which includes KJ Apa as Archie, Lili Reinhart as Betty, Camila Mendes as Veronica, Cole Sprouse as Jughead, Ross Butler as Reggie, Madelaine Petsch as Cheryl Blossom, Ashleigh Murray as Josie (of the Pussycats), and Casey Cott as Kevin Keller.

Other Archie icons appearing in the first episode include Luke Perry as Archie’s dad, Fred; Mädchen Amick and Lochlyn Munro as Betty’s parents, the Coopers; Marisol Nichols as Hermione Lodge, Veronica’s mother; Trevor Stines as Jason Blossom; Daniel Yang as Dilton; Cody Kearsley as Moose; Alvin Sanders as Pop Tate; Sarah Habel as a much younger Miss Grundy; and Colin Lawrence as Coach Clayton.
