\”The CW is a perfect for for the vibe and tone of the Riverdale series,\” said Archie Comics CEO/Publisher, Jon Goldwater. \”We couldn\’t be in better hands. Working with WB, Greg Berlanti and having Roberto involved has made this a dream project come to life. This is a major, major thing for this company.\”

As fans know, Aguirre-Sacasa is also the mastermind behind Archie\’s two bestselling and acclaimed horror titles, AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE and CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA. He is also a consulting producer on the “Supergirl” series.

The \”Riverdale\” news comes hot on the heels of the hugely successful sellout Archie relaunch, kicked off by a stellar debut issue from the powerhouse creative team of writer Mark Waid and artist Fiona Staples, which has been the buzz of this year\’s Comic-Con.
