Riverdale Season 2 continues to move closer with news that Warner Bros. has inked a new deal with Archie Comics that serves to strengthen the CW teen drama’s standing, per THR:
In the wake of the launch of Riverdale on the CW, Archie Comics has signed an exclusive deal with Warner Bros. Television to develop more of the publisher’s properties for television and original content.
As Archie CEO Jon Goldwater tells The Hollywood Reporter, the deal extends beyond the traditional Riverdale crew of Archie, Betty and Veronica as seen in the current CW series. It could include lesser-known properties, including “America’s Queen of Pin-Ups and Fashions” Katy Keene, as well as the superheroes of the company’s Dark Circle imprint.
“Archie is unique in that we have a huge library of characters that are not only recognizable, but they’re successful and entertaining,” Goldwater says.
