The ongoing series from Glee writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa sees a zombie apocalypse come to Riverdale.
"Afterlife with Archie combines two of my great passions: Archie comics and horror comics," said Aguirre-Sacasa.
"This series came out of conversations with Jon [Goldwater], asking questions like, 'What if the Archie characters found themselves in a Stephen King novel like The Stand or a Sam Raimi movie like The Evil Dead? Could we pull that off, tonally?' We're really going for it."
The scribe revealed that the series' first arc will be titled 'Escape from Riverdale' and the second 'Betty RIP', hinting that Betty Cooper will be joining the ranks of the undead.
Afterlife with Archie will debut in "late 2013".
