The Success of Riverdale

Analyze the ways in which this TV series has successfully managed to go from an innocent and fun graphic novel to a dark TV series covering some graphic themes. Many people thought it would fail- what made it succeed?

  • I think this is a great topic, though it may be hard since the show only has one season under its belt. With the second season being recently released, you could also analyze reactions to the initial episodes and trailers, and how that feedback might compare or contrast with its success from the first season. – Noelle McNeill 7 years ago
  • It certainly plays on the old school American high school characters, which appeals to a wide audience, but is made unique with it's dark and mysterious themes running through, perfect for a millennial audience that has the best of both. The cast certainly helped the success also. – rebeverett 6 years ago
