New US teen series Riverdale has been renewed by The CW.
The re-imagining of the Archie comics has been averaging 1.16 million US viewers but adds a healthy 78% in the coveted 18-34 demographic in Live+7 ratings.
Together with the network’s massive output deal with Netflix it is enough to win a second instalment of the series dubbed ‘Gossip Girl meets Twin Peaks.’
The series from Berlanti Productions stars NZ actor K.J. Apa and screens in Australia on Netflix.
