The Glee cast is going to Riverdale. Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products and Archie Comics have paired up to launch a four-part crossover comicbook series next year, writen by Glee producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
“The Glee collaboration with Archie opens up new avenues to explore with these characters,” said Jeffrey Godsick, president of Fox Consumer Products. “Roberto’s involvement coming directly from the show ensures for the loyal Glee fans that the storylines will be authentic but with a new twist.”
After meeting at this year’s Comic-Con, co-chief executive officer of Archie Comics, Jon Goldwater, and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa decided to blend their projects to create something new. The idea of the books is the members of the Archie gang, including Archie, Betty and Jughead, find themselves face to face with the Glee characters and break out into song when Dilton discovers a parallel universe that’s strikingly similar to Riverdale.
Roberto Aguirre- Sacasa could not be more thrilled about the upcoming project that will no doubt bridge generation gaps. “I thought, Archie Meets Glee would be a great crossover since they’re both set in high schools, they’re both optimistic, they both involve singing… My boss Ryan [Murphy, co-creator of Glee] loved the idea and that started the process.”
