'Riverdale' is getting the 'Carrie' treatment with a dark musical episode

Yep, your friendly Bulldogs are staging a one-hour, 11-song performance of Carrie: The Musical, an adaptation of the 1976 supernatural thriller (and the 1988 Broadway adaptation, 2012 off-Broadway revival, and 2013 movie starring Chloë Grace Moretz). Only time will tell, so keep up on the show until April rolls around. But "Carrie" was given award-winning new life when it was reworked and revived Off-Broadway in 2012. It includes the unforgettable songs "The World According to Chris", "A Night We'll Never Forget", and "Unsuspecting Hearts".

The school's production of the Stephen King horror classic will be directed by Betty's BFF Kevin Keller (referred to as a "future Tony winner" - ha! - by the tongue-in-cheek press release), with snarky redhead Cheryl Blossom playing the lead role of telekinetically blessed teen outcast Carrie White. Will the musical bring out some romantic tension between Archie and Betty? He would like to thank his girlfriend, Veronica, for always being there and his dad, Fred Andrews, for helping build and construct the sets. Betty Cooper's bio says "much love to her boyfriend, Jughead Jones", which suggests that #Bughead will reunite, while both Cheryl and Toni Topaz have names redacted from their bios.

Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes) takes on the role of Chris Hargensen. She is excited to make her Riverdale High stage debut in Carrie: The Musical. Love and support to her mother, Sierra McCoy, for all her love and support.

How Game of Thrones almost killed Jason Momoa's career
This was because a lot of people thought he couldn't speak English Language - Khal Drogo spoke Dothraki on the show. And then I met Fred Armisen [comedian], and he goes "I didn't even know you spoke English" - it was heartbreaking.

According to Variety, the Riverdale gang will be staging the notorious Carrie: The Musical, setting to music the classic story of teenage cruelty and social isolation that ends with most of a ME high school dead by the hand of a telekinetic social outcast. The episode is scheduled for Wednesday, April 18 at 8/7c. Yes, we are losing our minds over this.

Even though a crossover between Riverdale and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is no longer likely to occur, us fans who appreciate the darker side of Archie Comics have something else to look forward.
