Cole Sprouse is coming back to the small screen!
The former Suite Life of Zack and Cody actor is set to star in a new series titled Riverdale, which was just officially picked up by The CW.
According to Deadline, the series is: “Set in present day and based on the iconic Archie Comics characters,” and is “a surprising and subversive take on Archie, Betty, Veronica, and their friends, exploring the surrealism of small town life — the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome façade.”
Cole, who will play Jughead, wrote about his new show on his instagram page, saying: “We interrupt Botswana’s scheduled programming to bring you this announcement: #Riverdale has been picked up! Catch #Jughead on the CW. A return to acting is gunna be a bit strange, but Im doing it with a good group of people. Alright, round two start.”
Also starring in the series are Lili Reinhart, Ashleigh Murray, Luke Perry, KJ Apa, Madelaine Petsch, Camila Mendes, Marisol Nichols, and Mädchen Amick.
Congrats to Cole on his new role!
