Afterlife with Archie To Get A Film Or Show

Archie Comics Jon Goldwater participated in a Reddit AMA this week and was asked various questions about “Afterlife With Archie,” the popular horror spin-off of the classic comic series.

One surprising revelation in the Q&A was that the comic could well see a screen adaptation shortly. Goldwater says:

“As for film and TV – the answer is YES! Absolutely! This is something that will be happening at some point in the near future – nothing to announce just yet, but rest assured it will happen.”

The comic sees Sabrina the Teenage Witch bringing Jughead’s beloved pet Hot Dog back to life, an act which unleashes a zombie apocalypse in Riverdale and Archie must lead the survivors out of town.

Berlanti Productions and Warner Brothers Studios are currently developing the regular “Archie” comic into a TV series.
