Riverdale may be on hiatus, but its unique blend of teen drama and Archie Comics lore can still be felt in the pop culture landscape. The show's aesthetic has led to countless cosplays from fans - including popular Internet pooch Doug The Pug.
The Twitter account for Internet sensation Doug The Pug recently shared several adorable photos of him dressed as Riverdale's main characters. He can be seen cosplaying as Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse), Archie Andrews (KJ Apa), Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart), and Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes). You can check out the tweet below.

From Jughead's crown-shaped hat to Veronica's strand of pearls, its safe to say that Doug (and his owner) nailed the details of this Riverdale cosplay. The photos were even shot in a diner booth, evoking the show's iconic Pop's restaurant.
For the uninitiated, Doug The Pug has grown millions of followers on social media, thanks to various photos and videos of him recreating moments from pop culture. Doug's past videos include parodies of The Walking Dead, Spider-Man, and Beauty and the Beast.
This won't be the only content related to the show on the way from Doug the Pug, as his Twitter teased that a video of Doug in his Riverdale cosplay is coming soon. Considering the warm response the Riverdale photos have received from fans of the show, as well as the official Archie Comics Twitter account, the video is sure to be a hit.
Riverdale's second season will premiere on a new night, on Wednesday, October 11th, at 8/7c, on The CW.
The first season of RIVERDALE found our characters reeling from the tragic death of high school golden boy Jason Blossom. For many who had seen their home as perfect, safe, and innocent, the investigation into Jason’s murder peeled back the layers of their hometown to reveal a place bubbling over with secrets, mysteries, and scandals. As the town breathed a collective sigh of relief that Jason’s killer had been found out, another terrible crime occurred, in a space that had been considered one of the town’s safest, most innocent places. If Jason Blossom’s murder revealed the slimy underbelly beneath Riverdale’s surface, as we enter Season Two, the shooting of Fred Andrews threatens to plunge the entire town into utter darkness.
Based on the characters from Archie Comics, RIVERDALE is from Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios, in association with Berlanti Productions, with executive producers Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Supergirl, Glee), Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow), Sarah Schechter (Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow) and Jon Goldwater (Archie Comics).
