LOS ANGELES — For the fans of Archie Andrews, his impending death marks a fitting end for the famous comic book do-gooder.
The 73-year-old red-headed character will die in Wednesday’s installment of Life with Archie when he intervenes in an assassination attempt on senator Kevin Keller, Archie Comics’ first openly gay character who is pushing for more gun control in Riverdale. Archie’s death — but not the circumstances — was first announced in April and will mark the conclusion of the series that focuses on grown-up renditions of Archie and his pals.
