The relationship between the two may already be on the rocks...
When 'Riverdale' came to the small screen at the beginning of 2017 on The CW, not many people knew what to expect from the Archie Comics small screen live adaptation.

'Riverdale' makes its season 2 return in October
Quickly becoming a hit, the show was perfect for water cooler conversation and amassed a loyal following, all intent on working out the mysteries presented in the series for themselves and flooding the internet with various theories, ranging from the ridiculous to the plausible.

'Riverdale' impressed audiences across the globe throughout its first season. Though it confused many when it was revealed a television series would be brought to life based on the characters from the long-running Archie Comics books, the dark tone and humour injected throughout the show meant it was a major success, with US network The CW quickly ordering a second season.

The cast of 'Riverdale' Season 1
Currently focusing on a murder investigation, after Jason Blossom was found washed up with a bullet hole in his head, the show gives a darker and gloomier outlook on the town of Riverdale; one that much of the comic book readers wouldn't have been expecting.
