Following the casting of Archie Andrews, Josie, Jughead, Betty and Cheryl, and Kevin Keller; The CW's Riverdale show has found its Veronica Lodge in newcomer Camila Mendes.

Actress Camilla Mendes will portray Veronica Lodge in The CW's Riverdale, a live-action adaptation of the Archie comic strip. She joins a cast that includes---

  • KJ Apa as Archie Andrews
  • Luke Perry as Fred Andrews
  • Madelaine Petsch as Cheryl Blossom
  •  Reinhart as Betty Cooper
  •  Ahleigh Murray as Josie McCoy
  • Cole Sprouse as Jughead Jones
Mendes Veronica is described as " a silver-tongued high school sophomore who returns to Riverdale from New York, eager to reinvent herself after a scandal involving her father." Riverdale will be a one-hour drama produced by Warner Brothers Studios and Berlanti Productions. Archie Comics Chief Creative Officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa will write the pilot.

The live-action series offers a bold, subversive take on Archie, Betty, Veronica, and their friends, exploring small-town life and the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome facade. The show will focus on the eternal love triangle of Archie Andrews, girl-next-door Betty Cooper, and rich socialite Veronica Lodge, and will include the entire cast of characters from the comic books—including Archie’s rival, Reggie Mantle, and his slacker best friend, Jughead Jones.

Popular gay character Kevin Keller will also play a pivotal role. In addition to the core cast, “Riverdale” will introduce other characters from Archie Comics’ expansive library, including Josie and the Pussycats.
