Being one of the most desired comic book gingers, turning Archie into a real-life character was always going to be a tricky thing to master.
But, give him life they did – K.J. Apa stars as our beloved Archie in upcoming TV series, Riverdale, making sure they include Archie’s signature bright red hair, too. (Granted, the ginger shade is dyed, but it’s there all the same)
The show promises to be a bold and subversive take on Archie and his friends, exploring small-town life. Naturally, there will also be a focus on the endless love triangle between Archie, Betty and Veronica, showing that ginger men are very much in demand!
Catch Riverdale when it kicks off on 26th January 2017 on The CW in the US.
