Who's in the cast of The Archies?

Agastya Nanda as Archie Andrews

Riverdale's teenage Casanova, Archie Andrews is charming and endearing. He has a passion for music and enjoys playing with his band The Archies. Though selfless and loyal, he's torn between his feelings for Betty and Veronica. He also wears his heart on his sleeve — something that tends to get him into trouble often.

Khushi Kapoor as Betty Cooper

Betty Cooper is the adorable girl next door. She's determined, kind, and can do anything she wants — except get Archie for herself. Betty loves to journal, work at her dad's bookstore, and help her mom with baking. She can find the good in anyone, which makes her the most reliable and lovable friend of all.

Suhana Khan as Veronica Lodge

The richest girl in town, Veronica Lodge knows what she wants and won't let anyone walk over her. Ronnie is trendy and sassy, and the boys love her. She has a rare kind of confidence that makes her stand out in Riverdale's old-world charm. Her mansion is second only to the size of her heart; generous to a fault, she loves her friends dearly and is the closest to Betty.

Vedang Raina as Reggie Mantle

He's good looking and he knows it. Reggie is the wisecracking jokester of the gang. Self-absorbed, quick-witted, and secretly sensitive, he doesn't always reveal his feelings publicly. He has a secret crush on Veronica but that doesn't stop him from dating the rest of the girls in Riverdale. No one could love Reg as much as he loves himself!
