Riverdale is developing a new spin-off series ...

Riverdale is about to launch a new spin-off series, which has focused this time on Archie Comics character Jake Chang.

The main show, which will feature Sabrina and Katy Keene''s seventh season, has already spawned two sister shows.

Jake Chang is in the works, which is now described as a Asian American story based on a 16-year-old private investigator.

Chang must navigate between his increasingly gentrified home in Chinatown and the elite private school he visits.

It''s being described as a shambled teen drama with no neon noir but looks to halt every Asian stereotype on its head. However, it appears to be a standalone show, with no intentions to debut Chang on Riverdale.

Oanh Ly of Sabrina and writer-director Viet Nguyen will direct the CW series, with both the series going to be written and directed by Daniel Dae Kim''s (Hawaii Five-0) company 3AD.

As part of the Mystery of the Missing Mermaid story centered on Betty and Veronica, Jake Chang will make his comics debut later in July.

"We are so proud and honored to be a part of this new wave of Asian American content," said Ly and Nguyen.

"The world of Jake Chang is vast, compelling, and a lot of fun. And, just like our rascally teen detective, we''ll be able to enter the "F U" of the original "Fu Chang" IP, who marveled at all familiar objects and tell a unique Asian American story."

Meanwhile, Riverdale''s boss Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa teased the show''s final season, admitting that it will be "bittersweet."

Riverdale will air on The CW in the United States and will conclude with season 7 of this season. In the United Kingdom, you may stream via Netflix.
