Comic Book Resources writes that Archie and his fellow friends will be back on television as an animated program. CBR also talks to Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater about the development.
Goldwater on Archie and Archie returning to animation:
My overall goals were to revitalize the publishing, see where we were in the digital landscape and take advantage of those opportunities and then, importantly, find a partner that we could team with and march forward on the animation side. That’s been the process, and it’s taken me a number of years. It’s been about four years now! But now I feel very comfortable with where we sit on the publishing side. I feel very comfortable with where we sit on the digital publishing side. And now I feel extremely comfortable in our partnership with MoonScoop and with our plans to move forward with a brand new Archie animation show. I think it’s going to explode. I think it’s going to be huge, and it’s going to turn a whole new generation of young kids onto Archie. And that’s going to help us in so many areas. It’ll help on the publishing side, on the digital side and with our general awareness for the overall licensing program.
