Throughout the past two months, The CW made several casting announcementsKJ Apa will play Archie Andrews, Cole Sprouse will play Jughead Jones , Lili Reinhart will play Betty Cooper, Camila Mendes will play Veronica Lodge, Ashleigh Murray will play Josie McCoy, Madelaine Petsch will play Cheryl Blossom, and Luke Perry will play Fred Andrews.

Here’s more from the press release: “The live-action series offers a bold, subversive take on Archie, Betty, Veronica, and their friends, exploring small-town life and the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome facade. The show will focus on the eternal love triangle of Archie Andrews, girl-next-door Betty Cooper, and rich socialite Veronica Lodge, and will include the entire cast of characters from the comic books—including Archie’s rival, Reggie Mantle, and his slacker best friend, Jughead Jones.”
