Now, let us meet the stars of The Archies.
Archie Andrews – Agastya Nanda
“Guitar in one hand…His heart in the other…Archie Andrews is ready to make you swoon,” read the description. For the unversed, the character Archie Andrews first appeared in the Pep Comics. It gained insane popularity as a standalone character in pop culture.
Ethel Muggs – Aditi Saigal
The makers, on Wednesday, informed us that our “appointment has been booked with Riverdale's best hairdresser, Ethel Muggs.” Well, we cannot wait to meet her.
Jughead Jones — Mihir Ahuja
We have a foodie amongst us. The only love triangle Jughead believes in is a slice of a pizza. We totally love his ‘food'eology.
Yuvraj Menda – Dilton
“The only date Dilton Doiley cares about is when he needs to return books to the library…Meet Dilly and The Archies on 7th December, only on Netflix!” the makers wrote.
Veronica – Suhana Khan
Only a few things impress Veronica Lodge like herself, and we aren't surprised at all.
Reggie Mantle – Vedang Raina
As per the makers, “he was born ready, but we call him Reggie.”
Betty Cooper – Khushi Kapoor
“Love has four letters and so does cake. Betty Cooper is all for both,” read the caption.
