As a new school year begins, the town of Riverdale is reeling from the recent, tragic death of high school golden boy Jason Blossom - and nothing feels the same. Archie Andrews is still the all-American teen, but the summer's events made him realize that he wants to pursue a career in music - not follow in his dad's footsteps - despite the sudden end of his forbidden relationship with Riverdale's young music teacher, Ms. Grundy. Now Archie doesn't have anyone to mentor him - certainly not singer Josie McCoy, who is only focused on her band, the soon-to-be-world-famous Pussycats. Meanwhile, girl-next-door Betty Cooper is anxious to see her crush Archie after being away all summer, but she's not quite ready to reveal her true feelings for him. When a new student, Veronica Lodge arrives in town from New York with her mother Hermione, there's an undeniable spark between her and Archie, even though Veronica doesn't want to risk her new friendship with Betty. Cheryl Blossom, Riverdale's Queen Bee is happy to stir up trouble amongst the group, but Cheryl is keeping secrets of her own. What, exactly, is she hiding about the mysterious death of her twin brother, Jason? Riverdale may look like a quiet, sleepy town, but there are dangers in the shadows.
