This series puts a fresh, modern spin on a franchise that has been around for over 70 years. Archie and Betty have a fight and break up, and, though things are tense between them, both are unhappy with the way it ended. Then Veronica moves into town, and Archie is quickly pulled into her orbit, which involves sneaking around her father. All the while, Reggie makes trouble, as usual, and Jughead tries to save his friend from himself – Archie’s poor decision-making skills and legendary clumsiness cause disastrous shenanigans to follow him wherever he goes.
