It’s a good day to be in the Greg Berlanti business. In addition to the news that he is developing a Booster Gold feature film, his television series Supergirl survived the cancellation crisis by moving to The CW. And now, that network has also ordered his Riverdale pilot to series.
TVLine reports it and two other pilots — Frequency and No Tomorrow — will join The CW’s lineup next year.
The series will take the Archie Comics characters into “the surrealism of small town life” and expose “the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome facade.” KJ Apa stars as Archie with Lili Reinhart as Betty, Camila Mendes as Veronica and Cole Sprouse as Jughead Jones. Ashleigh Murray, Luke Perry and more will also populate the town.
