Riverdale Drops Two Music Videos Ahead Of Carrie: The Musical Episode

Riverdale Drops Two Music Videos Ahead Of Carrie: The Musical Episode”

The CW's Riverdale clearly has a love for film and the creative arts.

It seems like every show on The CW is getting a musical episode (or already is an actual musical), and next up on the docket is buzzy teen drama "Riverdale". It's hard to tell where the Riverdale characters end and the Carrie: The Musical characters begin, and it will be really interesting to see how the play-within-the-play plays out throughout the episode.

"I don't think it'd be Riverdale if there wasn't something tragic about a musical episode", Cole Sprouse said at Riverdale's recent PaleyFest panel.

The special episode - which airs on Wednesday - finds Archie (KJ Apa) and the gang performing in a high school production of "Carrie: The Musical", based on the 1976 horror hit "Carrie" (which itself was based on the bestseller by Stephen King). "It's one of the kind of classic coming-of-age rites of passage". As we've seen in photos for Wednesday night's episode there's a lot more than singing going on behind the scenes.

In terms of coming up with which musical for Riverdale High to put on, Aguirre-Sacasa admitted that Carrie proved to be the flawless choice after other options like Sweeney Todd and Little Shop of Horrors were ruled out early on: "Carrie felt right because it was a little less well-known, it was a little more off-kilter the way Riverdale is, and it was about high school kids - the way Riverdale is - dealing with dark themes".

But it's "A Night We'll Never Forget" that showcases the full extent - and budget - of this production.
