Archie Comics is kind of having a moment, and with the comics world increasingly crossing over into other forms of media, it's no surprise to hear that the imprint has signed a deal with the CW to bring their most famous characters to television. Riverdale, as the show will be called, will feature Archie, Veronica, Betty, Jughead and their friends, along with a few other familiar names (Josie and the Pussycats will make an appearance, which I, personally, think is awesome). And the writer who'll be shepherding the gang through this process is Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the man who created Afterlife With Archie and Archie Comics' chief creative officer.

So, what can we expect when Riverdale hits our small screens? We sat down with Aguirre-Sacasa at San Diego Comic-Con for a look at what that transition will be like, what kinds of stories we can expect, and more. Check it out below.
