For those not yet attuned, Riverdale is described as a "surprising and subversive" take on Archie comics, featuring among its cast Lili Reinhart, Cole Sprouse, Ashleigh Murray, Luke Perry, KJ Apa, Madelaine Petsch, Camila Mendes, Marisol Nichols and Twin Peaks alum Mädchen Amick.

The series critically acclaimed first season kicked off back in January with 1.4 million total viewers and a 0.5 demo rating before evening out to a season-to-date average of 1.2 million total viewers and a 0.4 demo rating.More news: `Injured` Mitchell Marsh ruled out of rest of India Tests
