In the wake of the successful launch of “Riverdale” on the CW, Warner Bros. Television and Archie Comics have signed an exclusive deal to develop more of the publisher’s properties for television and original content.
The deal extends beyond the traditional Riverdale crew and so could include lesser-known properties such as characters like Li’l Jinx, Katy Keene or some of the Dark Circle imprint superheroes. Archie CEO Jon Goldwater says:
“It’s part of the plan. Archie is unique in that we have a huge library of characters that are not only recognizable, but they’re successful and entertaining. Everyone knows Josie and Sabrina. Beyond that, we have an entire pantheon of heroes and villains that are perfect for TV or movies. Not to mention Katy Keene, Black Hood, Sam Hill, just to name a few. The possibilities are endless, and I can’t wait to start talking about what we have coming up. “
“Riverdale” continues its first season run on The CW over the next few weeks.
