There are fractions of the comics which do debris the same like Archie’s red hair, Jughead’s beanie, pep rallies and milkshakes at Pop’s Chock’lit Shoppe.
But the inclusive feel of the show is a lot darker than the graphic novel series.
Number one Producer Sarah Schechter commented on the basic thought process behind the new series when it was beginning being created.
She told Entertainment Weekly: “It’s Archie, so people needed to be aware, ‘Why is it still for today?’”.
Creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa explained: “When we augmented the murder-mystery element to season 1, the show unlocked creatively for me.
“As people on ones guard for more and more episodes, they’re much more accepting and galvanized by it.”
