Riverdale Fandom

Kaitlyn Tiffany highlights how Riverdale's active fandom was conceived and fostered from the start by the show's writers and considers the larger implications: "We’re approaching an era where more and more creative properties are viewed as open-source, where deriding something as 'not canon' barely even registers as an insult, and where fans who are given a backchannel to interact with stars, creatives, and each other will use it constantly and aggressively."

Also, catching back up with an article I missed when the blog was on hiatus, Michael Z. Newman covered Riverdale's self-awareness of the greatness of teen drama and the genre's narrative tropes.
