Storyline: After the death of one of the rich and popular Blossom twins on the 4th of July, the small town of Riverdale investigates the murder. The series starts in September, the beginning of a new school year, that brings with it new students, relationships, and reveals the mysteries of the past 4th of July.
The town of RIVERDALE has been rocked by the death of football hero (and secret cad) Jason Blossom (Trevor Stines), and slowly his former friends and loved ones are changing. Fellow football player Archie Andrews (KJ Apa) has decided he wants to pursue a career in music instead of joining his dad’s construction business; girl-next-door Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) is in a relationship with Archie; talented singer Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray) is ready to take her group the Pussycats to the next level; and new girl in town Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes) complicates everyone’s lives. And then there’s Cheryl Blossom (Medelaine Petsch), cheerleader captain and resident evil queen of Riverdale. Meanwhile, Jughead (Cole Sprouse) sits back and watches the drama. But like just about everyone else in Riverdale, Jughead has secrets, too. But nothing stays secret for long in this town, and the friends’ dramatic adventures and relationships take many twists and turns as the series progresses.
