The new CW series, Riverdale, revolves around the story of the beloved characters of "Archie Comics." However, as the teaser trailer suggests, there is nothing comical about the small screen version. Instead, the upcoming show appears to be darker.

It has been a while since the CW announced that it had acquired the rights to "Archie Comics." Fans of the illustrative series could not wait for their favorite characters to be given life on television. Unfortunately, there was not much buzz after that except when it was introduced at this year's San Diego Comic Con.

Just hours ago, the television network, in cooperation with the makers of "Archie Comics," released the first teaser trailer for Riverdale, the small screen version of the comic book story.

The differencleede between the written and moving forms is extremely noticeable. As Bleeding Cool pointed out, the series adaptation of Archie Andrews' story is nothing like what the older generation is familiar with.

The comic book is all about fun and laughter, yet in Riverdale, the plot has gone to a mystery/thriller route. There is also a hint of sexiness on this one as Archie is seen jogging bare top at night.

There is clearly a crime which needs to be solved. The question now is whether Archie is a suspect, or will he try to solve the case with the help from his trusted friend, Jughead, and two of her love interests, Betty and Veronica.

It is quite reasonable that the series is going in an opposite direction when it comes to the plot for the anticipated TV series. The laidback feel of the comic book version might not work well in the small screen. After all, intrigue and suspense are the most successful elements of a small screen show. They are what makes viewers come back for more.

Riverdale stars KJ Apa, Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes, Cole Sprouse, and Ross Butler. The pilot episode will premiere on Jan. 26, 2017, Thursday.
