Yesterday, Netflix released a behind-the-scene conversation teaser of The Archies. The conversation takes the viewers into nostalgia, remembering the popular comic book.
The Archies is touted to present a fresh take on the iconic gang of The Archies and promises to match the youthful energy, hope and excitement of the 60s. The trailer and streaming date for the film are yet to be announced.
