Riverdale (SEASON 4)

Premiere: Oct 9

Riverdale returned for a fourth season this week, with more grim twists befalling Archie and those around him. The episode titled Chapter Fifty-Eight: In Memoriam will honour actor Luke Perry, who played Archie’s dad, Fred Andrews. Perry’s untimely death in March at the age of 52 changed the storyline of the show, and makes season 4 an emotional one as the characters deal with Fred’s passing.

Watchmen (NEW)

Premiere: Oct 20

Watchmen is an adaptation of the graphic novel of the same name, about a dystopian world filled with masked vigilantes who are treated as outlaws for their violent methods. Fans are already commenting on the grittiness of the show based on the trailers released so far, which sees the 7th Cavalry, white supremacist vigilantes wearing Rorschach masks, begin attacking the homes of policemen from the Tulsa Police Force. Chaos ensues when the cops also don masks of their own to combat the 7th Cavalry using any means necessary.
