Riverdale Is Getting Musical Again With Heathers Adaptation
Of course, Riverdale's next musical is about awful teenagers.
Riverdale continues to be one of the weirdest shows on TV where everything that happens is likely the last thing you'd possibly expect. Don't believe that? Archie Andrews (KJ Apa) was attacked by a bear in the latest episode and just might be dead. (He's definitely not going to die, don't worry.)
Now the CW series is gearing up for its next musical episode. You may remember last season when they tackled Carrie: The Musical in an episode that left one character dead and everyone else freaking out. Now Riverdale is looking back on another classic film for its musical inspiration. On March 29, the series will present its take on Heathers: The Musical.
In a statement, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa teased, "Last year, we had a blast doing Carrie. This year, we wanted to honor another iconic teen movie. Heathers: The Musical is big fun, with great roles for the Riverdale kids. And everyone is singing." That last bit seems to hint that even Jughead (Cole Sprouse) will be getting in on the vocal action this time, after being sidelined during the Carrie musical.
Riverdale's second musical episode will include nine songs from the show's cast. The episode debuts on March 20 on The CW.
