CW’s “Riverdale” – a sexy, brooding Archie for a sexy, brooding generation?

You know what I think of when I think of Archie, Jughead, Betty, Veronica and the rest of the Riverdale crew?  Sexiness.  Well apparently I’m not alone because the CW just released the trailer for their upcoming “Riverdale” series.

Hmmm… it doesn’t actually look that bad.

“Riverdale” is produced by Greg Berlanti, who you may know as the man who saved the DC TV universe.  This present-day adaptation will follow follow Archie Andrews (KJ Apa) and friends as they begin their sophomore year of high school.  They’re also dealing with a murder-mystery.  Very “Veronica Mars”-ie.

The series stars Camila Mendes as Veronica, Lili Reinhart as Betty, Cole Sprouse as Jughead, Mädchen Amick as Betty’s mother Alice, Luke Perry as Archie’s father Fred, and Madelaine Petsch as Cheryl Blossom.

Yes that’s right… Luke Perry is playing a dad on TV.

“Riverdale” premieres on The CW on January 26.
