DeCarlo Rules: I think you can take it as a given that there's no happy ending to Afterlife With Archie, and there's no real conclusion short of "everyone dies". The good guys do not win.; there is no cure for zombies.

DeCarlo Rules:  I couldn't help notice that ACP seems to be focusing on Classic Archie again, now that they're reduced to nothing but the ongoing digests and one-shots.

Time setting of "Riverdale"

Okay, so it's established in the first episode that Riverdale High was founded in 1941. It's mentioned later in the season that they're gearing up for the 75th anniversary of the town's founding (which is eventually shown). Keep in mind that all of this occurs within, like, the first two months of the school year.

So is the first season of "Riverdale" supposed to occur in September-October of 2016?

And season 2 is supposed to pick up immediately after. Roberto once said he hopes season 2 will still be sophomore year.

So will season 2, airing in the 2017-2018 season, still occur in the 2016-2017 school year?

Or can we fudge a little and say the school was founded around a year before the town was officially incorporated?

Well, I got the answer to this when I watched episode 7 on Netflix last night. There's a close-up of the time card that Fred forges for Jughead. It reads July 11, 2016. So all of season 1 occurred during September-October of last year. Things might get tricky if season 2 continues to be set in the same school year.
