The CW has released new images for the next episode of Riverdale, and it’s time for this year’s musical!
Riverdale episode 417, “Chapter Seventy-Four: Wicked Little Town,” will see the kids heading into this year’s variety show and finding themselves doing songs from Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
… and does that bass drum say “The Archies”?!?
THE RIVERDALE HIGH VARIETY SHOW — After the previous debacles of “Carrie: The Musical” and “Heathers: The Musical,” Kevin (Casey Cott) decides to revive Riverdale High’s tradition of hosting a variety show. But when Mr. Honey (guest star Kerr Smith) forbids him from performing a number from “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” Kevin and the gang rally against their principal — each by performing a number from “Hedwig,” turning the variety show into a full-fledged musical that reflects the students’ inner lives and struggles. And amidst all the drama, one forbidden “showmance” begins to blossom.
Episode 417 will debut on April 15, 2020.
