20 Influential TV Shows That Paved The Way For Riverdale

The O.C.

The O.C.


Much like Riverdale, The O.C. follows a group of high school students as they navigate their lives in school and at home. Like Riverdale, there are elements of class conflict at play on the show, as well as a sort of soapy drama that exists on most high school shows, but was really perfected by The O.C.

Soapy drama doesn’t have to be annoying or overwrought, though. What makes shows like Riverdale and The O.C. work is that they know how to use their soapier elements to tell interesting stories. There are plenty of twists and turns, but that’s what makes them worthwhile.
