5. Riverdale (2017)

All of Archie's fans rejoiced when Riverdale was made available on Netflix.

Instead of the light-hearted mystery series we've all grown up with, this show puts a darker twist on all our favorite characters. The story follows Archie, the all-American boy, and his encounters with the darkness lurking just beneath Riverdale. It's perfect — but I just need Archie's hair to be more orange.
