Airdate: Riverdale

The reimagined Archies universe, Riverdale, will screen in Australia on Netflix later this month, same day as the US.

The dark drama, which includes a “tween peaks” murder mystery, has been wrapped in secrecy and stars NZ actor KJ Apa. His father is played by Luke Perry.

Archie’s got an edge. Veronica’s hiding her past. Riverdale is a little darker and a lot more interesting than it was in the days of Archie Comics.

Friday January 27 on Netflix.
