The Internet Is Going Crazy Over Riverdale‘s Musical Episode!
Sing it, loud and proud!
On Wednesday, Riverdale aired its highly anticipated musical episode where the gang — including Archie (KJ Apa), Betty (Lili Reinhart), Veronica (Camila Mendes), Kevin (Casey Cott) and Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) — stage a production of Carrie: The Musical. Jughead (Cole Sprouse) acts as the documentarian of the project.
Creator and showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa told Variety:
“[Our characters] are kids who, even though they get involved in crime and stuff, are still high school kids ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ and high school kids do musicals every year… So it feels like, on a show with high school kids, it’s easy to get to [a story where] we’re doing a musical. It’s one of the kind of classic coming-of-age rites of passage.”
During the episode, fans couldn’t contain their emotions and typed up a storm on Twitter! See the best reactions (below):
