Riverdale #2 Is the Archie Breakfast Club

Earlier this week, Archie Comics released the solicitations for product shipping in May 2017...and the description for Riverdale #2, the comic set in the world of The CW's Archie Comics adaptation, sounds...a bit familiar.

How so? Well, let's ask Archie's mom, who's played by '80s teen movie legend Molly Ringwald.


That's right, folks: They're doing The Breakfast Club in Riverdale -- and they're seriously not even trying to be subtle about it.

Ringwald, who will play Archie's mother, starred in the film alongside Anthony Michael Hall, Ally Sheedy, Judd Nelson, and Emilio Estevez.

“I definitely was aware of who she was and the accolades she holds,” series star KJ Apa told ComicBook.com during a recent set visit. “It was amazing being able to work with her for an episode.”

Here's the solicitation text for the issue, which is expected in stores on May 3:

Set in the same universe as the hit CW series, Riverdale continues to reveal untold stories of the world’s most famous teenagers. When five students from different social cliques (Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead, and Josie) end up in Saturday detention together—will they kill each other or come together against the forces of evil that brought them there?
