What is on the Riverdale Timeline?

The Riverdale timeline revolves around the live action CW series based on the rebooted Archie comics. This series takes a darker tone than even the rebooted comic series. It has been described has Archie Comics meets Twin Peaks.

Is the Riverdelle canon to the Archie Comics?

The short answer is no. Even with the rebooted Archie comics there is some difference between comic books and the Riverdale CW show. Riverdale is loosely based on the Archie Comics. I won’t get into the differences to avoid spoilers. There are Riverdale specific comics that we forethcoming.
