Three weeks ago, CW released a new teen drama called Riverdale, based on the classic Archie comics, but with a modern twist.

This show reveals teenagers who are trying to maintain their innocence in high school and at home while adjusting to the evils of the adult world. This is more than a love triangle, but a coming-of-age experience.

The main plot behind this show is to uncover the murder mystery behind Jason Blossom, a now dead student in Riverdale High School. A lot of people were affected by this tragedy, including the main character Archie. He’s considered the boyish, dreamy kid and juggles between working at his father’s construction business with his true passion, which is writing music.He holds information that could be crucial to the investigation, but can’t spill any secrets because he was having relations with his music teacher, Ms. Grund and unraveling this secret can corrupt reputations.

Compared to the comics, this series seems to be a darker version. Veronica Lodge, a once-rich girl, moves to Manhattan after her father is arrested for fraud. Betty Cooper, another main character, is a sister of the mentally deranged Polly Cooper who has been traumatized by the death of Jason, her now dead boyfriend.

There is also a gay character, named Kevin Keller. A music group of three girls called Josie and the Pussycats are all African Americans.

Currently, Riverdale is on their third episode of the series that airs every Thursday from 9-10 PM.

Who killed Jason? Will Archie and Ms.Grundy get caught? How does Betty deal with a psychotic sister? Hundreds of questions will surface while watching Riverdale, but it’s a mystery worth watching.
