Riverdale Is Doing a Musical Episode Based on Carrie: The Musical

THIS makes our hearts sing!

If you're a fan of Riverdale you'll have realised by now how many characters love to sing, so it seems fitting that there's a full-fledged musical episode on the way.

Airing in the US in April the show will feature an ep framed as a documentary around Riverdale High's production of Stephen King's horror classic Carrie: The Musical.

According to Variety, the tongue-and-cheek storyline will reportedly include about 11 musical numbers and Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch) will naturally take on the lead role of Carrie while Archie Andrews (K.J. Apa) will play Tommy Ross, Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) will play Sue Snell, Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes) will play Chris Hargensen, and Jughead Jones will play The Beak.

While we've seen lots of the actors' musical talent before -- the show has featured covers of Donna Summer's "I Feel Love" and "Out Tonight" from Jonathan Larson's "Rent," as well as the original "All For Me," -- actress Madelaine Petsch is hinting that fans are in for something special. She shared the Riverdale drama department's casting sheet on Twitter with the caption: "You ain't seen nothin' yet."

As Digital Spy points out the show will "follow in the footsteps of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Fringe and The Flash with its very first musical episode."
