Speaking to NY Times, publisher and Co-chief executive of Archie Comics Publications Jon Goldwater confirmed the exciting news about adding three new TV series to the television world of Archie Comics. According to Goldwater, plans are to launch two animated series and one live-action series for now.
More details reveal that one of the animated series will be focusing on the popular Archie character Josie McCoy of Josie and the Pussycats. Fans have met Riverdale version of Josie played by Ashleigh Murray. Just like Riverdale, this spinoff will have horror undertones to its storyline.

Meanwhile, Archie comics No. 700 will be released in November from a new team including the writer Nick Spencer and artist Marguerite Sauvage.
“If you keep the DNA of the characters intact, you can take them anywhere: TV, publishing, whatever the medium,” Goldwater said.
