Title: My thoughts on what Archie comic plan to greenlit three shows
Post by: terrence12 on July 10, 2018, 01:24:48 am


According to an article that I found from cbr.com : https://www.cbr.com/archie-comics-animated-live-action-series/

It seems that Archie comics will greenlight three shows,Two live actions and one animated series.So I thought of giving my guess on what the three shows are all about

The first live action show will be based on Josie and the pussycats and will likely set  in the riverdale and chilling adventures of Sabrina universe with horror undertones,My guess is that it will be similar to the josie animated series from 1970 where the gang are  caught in adventure/mystery situation but it will have  a tone similar to the CW supernatural series where it will involve real supernatural forces  and real criminal activities much like the X files.

Or maybe the josie live action series will have them turn into werecats or vampires like the one from afterlife with Archie

The second live action show will be based on an obscure character published by Archie comics from the 50s called Sam Hill, Private Eye which will probably be a crime drama television series but will likely be set in its own universe in other words a standalone series not connecting to the riverdale universe.

And the third will be an animated series but unlike the dark live action shows it will be light-hearted and family oriented and will be faithful to the source material that is comedy as it involves the misadventures of Archie and his gang though I wish that a live action sitcom or a comedy drama would be nice.

an thats all my guess  on what Archie comic plan to greenlit three shows

The report suggests that two will be animated and only the Sam Hill show will be live action - "The planned new series include an animated series starring Josie McCoy (of Josie & and the Pussycats fame) with horror undertones, a more light-hearted animated series following the misadventures of Archie and his friends in Riverdale, and a live-action series centred on the noir-tinged Archie character, private detective Sam Hill".

No sense getting excited about any of these until they really happen and we can see what they actually are. The so-called newsbyte didn't even provide the most basic of details, like what networks the series are being produced for, or what animation studios are producing the shows. It's all just pie-in-the-sky until grounded with some factual details.
