Netflix dropped a little teaser for Riverdale to, uh, celebrate it’s release on May 18 on the US Netflix.

Pray for me and my unholy thoughts.
Look. I screamed during the season finale— not because shit was going down— but because Hot Dog (Jughead’s dog in the comic books) made a cameo. That tells you how much of an Archie nerd I am.
Spoiler alert for Season 1 below!
The Archie comics were a huge part of my comic book reading days of my childhood. I was thrilled when The CW announced that Greg Berlanti (The Flash, Arrow) was developing a new series based on Archie called Riverdale. I had been waiting for this very moment. A live-action Archie television show! Jughead will be coming to life! Ahhh, I love Jughead so much!
In 2015, Archie will be “rebooted” with Mark Weid and one of my favorite artist, Fiona Staples to celebrate its 75th anniversary. When I came across this on my newsfeed on Twitter, my brain pretty much imploded. I grew up on Archie comics. For awhile, I really latched onto the world, going back and forth between Team Betty and Team Veronica and then deciding that everyone sucks except for Jughead. I must have absorbed plenty of life lessons from reading millions of Archie books.
So yes, I’m a bit excited to see the new look for the comic book and for this relaunch!
