Riverdale is an American TV show and is the name of the town that the show is set in. At the heart of the town is a mystery, the tragic death of the golden boy, Jason Blossom, who was a teenager when he was killed.

Riverdale introduces a ton of fresh faces, as there are five main characters in Riverdale, Veronica Lodge (Camilla Mendes), Archie Andrews (KJ APA), Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse), Betty Cooper (Lilli Reinhart) and Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch).

Betty has a crush on Archie Andrews but is too nervous to tell him. Veronica is the daughter of the millionaire, Hiram Lodge, who is facing embezzlement charges. At the beginning of the year, Archie Andrews decides to pursue a future in music and his friendship with Jughead Jones looks like it’s in a bad place. My favourite character is Veronica Lodge because she is fearless and sympathetic. My favourite episode is, 'The River’s Edge' because I like the way they introduce the characters and Veronica and Betty’s friendship.

 Riverdale is popular because of its engaging suspense and balance of teen drama and mystery. The viewers have no idea what’s going to happen next, as Riverdale has its fair share of twists and plots. Riverdale’s storyline highlights issues that young people face today such as school bullying, drug dealing, suicide, homosexuality, and more. The women of Riverdale are outspoken and bold, and they stand up for what they think is right. There are several emotions in Riverdale when it comes to love - there is heartbreak, romance and betrayal.
