20 Influential TV Shows That Paved The Way For Riverdale
Veronica Lodge is a character straight out of Gossip Girl. She’s even from the preppy upper-class world of New York, which only makes the comparison even more appropriate. Gossip Girl‘s drama isn’t the same as Riverdale‘s, but it’s telling that so much of who Veronica is seems to be heavily influenced by that show.
Gossip Girl established what rich New York girls acted like, and it’s that example that Riverdale followed as they set up Veronica and her family. Without Gossip Girl, Veronica would likely be a lot different, and those changes would probably not be for the better.
