20 Influential TV Shows That Paved The Way For Riverdale
Especially in its more recent seasons, Hannibal has felt like a major influence on Riverdale. Hannibal tells the story of its titular serial killer, and his relationship with Will Graham, a man he shares quite a bit in common with.
Like The Fall, Hannibal is very interested in what makes killers tick. Riverdale‘s third season takes some of the same imagery used on Hannibal and makes it a little more PG. Riverdale is not nearly as stylized as Hannibal, and it’s a lot easier to follow, but the two shows do share some DNA, especially when it comes to insanely detailed sculptures.
