Riverdale, a show that many people love, has been around for a little bit over a year and will be a year and month old on March 26, 2018, to be exact. Riverdale is a mystery, teen drama, and crime show that draws you in, by the first episode. As Ana Arriaza, a freshman at Samueli Academy says, “I like all the characters and the show is really juicy.” Throughout this show, you will learn to love and hate characters. You will also learn the controversy on who and how he was killed, Jason Blossom. Jason Blossom isn’t the only mystery in town either. As the investigating goes on further by the clan (Jughead, Betty, Veronica, Archie, Kevin), you learn town lies and see how the killer isn’t the only one keeping secrets. But as much as we love the show and the characters, we also like them off camera and wish they could be our best friends.
The show consists of five friends who investigate different crime scenes and discover truths and lies. With these mysteries come love and romance and there are certain people you would like for them to date onset and offset. This causes even more controversy and can make you love the character more or even hate them. Ana Arriaza a freshman at Samueli Academy says, “I ship Betty and Archie”, meanwhile Leila another freshman at Samueli Academy says, “I ship Archie and Veronica.” This shows how people have their own opinions and interests in the characters.
This show is based on a comic that first came out in December 1941. So yes it has been a long time. What does the audience think of this? To many people, it gets them even more intrigued and interested. Sean Rodriguez, a student who attends Samueli Academy says, “ I think it’s pretty cool how it’s based off a comic. It gets me more interested.”
Season one for Riverdale is now over and it’s time to make room for season two. We will be expecting many more mysteries and truths to be uncovered. Is Riverdale as innocent as it seems? Will anyone else get murdered? How will the town react to any more bad news? These are a few of the many questions the audience has, and just maybe will be answered in the upcoming season.
