20 Influential TV Shows That Paved The Way For Riverdale

Twin Peaks

Madchen Amick In 'Twin Peaks'

ABC

It may seem strange, but Riverdale may be more indebted to Twin Peaks than it is to any other show. Twin Peaks tells the story of a small town that is rocked by the murder of an incredibly popular girl. The series is stranger than Riverdale, but the two share a lot of DNA.

Both shows are interested in the darkness at the heart of a small town, and both know how to artfully combine normal high school drama with a broader story. Twin Peaks is much more interested in the spiritual side of things than Riverdale, but both shows combine a murder mystery with normal soap opera conventions.
