Riverdale Is Doing A Carrie: The Musical Episode
So just like High School Musical 2, except less ballads on a golf course and more blood.
Riverdale is about to try and fill that Glee shaped hole in our hearts and tbh we’re totally fine about that.
The show announced it’ll be putting on a one hour, 11-song performance of Carrie: The Musical, which is described as "a dark-yet-catchy cautionary tale exploring the gritty realities of small-town high school life.”
So yeah, apt doesn’t begin to cover it.

As part of their spring musical we’ll get to see Kevin Keller direct the masterpiece, with Jughead Jones in charge of giving us a behind-the-scenes look at the production.
Meanwhile Archie Andrews will take on the role of popular kid no.1 Tommy Ross, meaning that yes, he’s going to be singing again whether your ears want to hear it or not.
But it’s fine because all we’re going to be concentrating on is the chemistry between him and his on-stage girlfriend Sue Snell, who is being played by none other than Betty Cooper aka his childhood sweetheart aka the person he kissed a few eps ago despite being in a relationship with Veronica Lodge. PHEW.
As for the revenge obsessed leading lady herself? Well of course that part has gone to the only person who was born to be unhinged: Cheryl Blossom. Oh and don’t worry about poor ol’ Ronnie, as she’ll be playing the queen bee of the school with Reggie Mantle playing her boyf. Natch.
The only catch is that it won’t be on Netflix until April 19, which gives us plenty of time to actually watch the iconic film…
