Riverdale: Carrie-Themed Musical Episode Confirmed!

at .

Well, this is exciting news from the land of Riverdale. 

According to TV Line, the sophomore sensation will air its first musical episode in April, but the characters won't be bursting into song because of some spell cast on them. 

Trouble In Paradise - Riverdale Season 2 Episode 8

Instead, the musical aspect will organically come to the show. Riverdale High will be putting on a production of Carrie: The Musical. 

The cast will take to the stage and perform eleven songs during the spectacular. 

Dressed To Kill - Riverdale Season 2 Episode 5

The show will be directed by Kevin Keller, while Cheryl Blossom will take on the titular role of Carrie. We can only imagine the witty one-liners Cheryl will add in for comedic value. 

Veronica will play the villain, Chris while Archie and Betty will play Sue and Tommy. 

Given that Veronica is in the know about that kiss Betty and Archie shared on Riverdale Season 2 Episode 9, we can only bet there will be some fireworks behind the scenes. 

A Dangerous Showdown - Riverdale

If you watch Riverdale online, you will be well aware that the cast is a talented bunch. 

We've already witnessed Jose and the Pussycats, Archie and Veronica perform, so we cannot wait to see what becomes of the other characters. 

Wouldn't it be great to see the students from Southside High getting involved in all of the fun? 

That's assuming the Serpents will still be in the school when the episode airs Wednesday, April 18 at 8/7c.

Riverdale Quotes

Kevin: Okay, Veronica, I’m obsessed with everything that just happened.
Veronica: Thank you! It helps to be off-book and in full costume.
Betty: Don’t be so modest, you are the literally embodiment of Chris. Never has a role been perfectly typecast.
Archie: Betty!
Veronica: What was that, Betty?
Betty: I mean think about it: Spoiled rich girl, check. Major daddy issues, check. Bad to the bone, trying to control everyone around her, including her boyfriend and best friend. Check, check, check.

Veronica: What the hell is a "Sticky Maple"?
Kevin: It's kinda what it sounds like. It's a Riverdale thing.
Veronica: No, Kevin, it's a slut-shaming thing. And I'm neither a slut nor am I going to be shamed by someone named, excuse me, Chuck Clayton! Does he really think he can get away with this? Does he not know who I am?! I will cut the brakes on his supped-up phallic symbol.
