Horay for more LGBT representation!

The CW's dark reimagining of the iconic and longstanding Archie comic series—simply entitled Riverdale—premieres tonight, and from the looks of the teaser, it's gonna be good. 

(Have you seen the new Archie, though?! *fans self*)

What makes the prospect of this new show even better is that Kevin Keller, the gay character who was first introduced to the Archie universe in 2010 in the Veronica comic issue #202, is a regular on the show, adding much-welcome LGBT representation to the overall mainstream television landscape.

"He's kind of one of the only characters who is constantly saying the truth," said actor Casey Cott, who playes Kevin in the new CW show. "Most of the time he says things that probably everyone else is thinking too."

Watch Casey Cott introduce us more to Kevin Keller in the video below, and catch the series premiere of Riverdale tonight at 9pm/8c on The CW.
