Oh, Riverdale. Beautiful, bizarre Riverdale. There has never been a show quite like you – and we don’t know if that’s a good or a bad thing.
Even the biggest fan of Archiekins, Betty and co will agree that the US teen drama Riverdale, loosely (and at this point, loosely doesn’t really do it justice) based on the original Archie comics, has become something of an unpredictable, loose cannon. What started out as a typical high school show – boyfriends, girlfriends, new girls, jealousy – with just a hint of a murder mystery has become… well, Riverdale.
There’s been several gang wars. There’s been floating babies. There’s been demonic cults, Molly Ringwald now playing the ‘mom’ role (one to make anyone of age in the 80s feel ancient), cheerleaders breaking onto prison grounds to perform for their locked-up friend and his cellmates, teenagers owning speakeasies. Oh, and there’s even been a fight with a bear. A teenage boy literally fighting a bear. With his hands!
And it’s still not over! Riverdale has recently been renewed for another series – to air sometime in 2022 – so who knows what else the writers will come up with. But that’s part of why we all love it. It is an unapologetic beast of its own making – a show without peers. And more often than not, a show without a plot.
To celebrate all your favourites, check out the EMP Riverdale shop, packed tighter than Archie’s singlet when his storyline involved wrestling his girlfriend’s father (really). Our Riverdale merch includes exclusive Riverdale clothing – from a Riverdale high replica skirt, made popular by Cheryl Blossom and her cheer squad. There’s also Riverdale t-shirts inspired by everyone’s favourite ‘ship’ – Bughead, That’s Betty and Jughead.
Flash these colours in the wrong side of town and you’re in for a world of trouble – we’ve got official Southside Serpents merch for those who love FP and his band of gangsters-with-morals. Only in Riverdale would the bad biker gang become the good guys, saving the day on more than one occasion. Feel part of the crew with an exclusive Southside Serpents t-shirt or hoodie.
As more episodes of the show come out, we’ll get our hands on more Riverdale merchandise to share with fans. As we all collectively hold our breath to see what the show comes up with next, it’s nice to know the EMP Riverdale shop is a place where a community can come together. It can be hard to be a Riverdale fan. But you’re not alone. Not here.
