Network: The CW
Genre: Drama

A subversive take on Archie, Betty, Veronica, and their friends, exploring the surrealism of small town life — the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale's wholesome facade.

Davis's Opinion: Pick!
I know The CW is going a little comics crazy, but this looks awesome. (Where's my gritty Hardy Boys reboot though?)
