"The Brain" is taking over the school!
Anthony Michael Hall starred as Brian Johnson in "The Breakfast Club" back in 1985. The classic film is clearly having a moment this year (see more references below), and "Riverdale" is the latest to pay tribute.
"Riverdale" Season 3 is now taping, and Episode 4 will be a flashback called "The Midnight Club." That episode airs in November, and features AMH as the school principal.
Here's more from The CW:
“In RIVERDALE’s 'Breakfast Club' inspired flashback episode, we learn dark secrets from when the adults were high school students. Anthony Michael Hall will play Principal Featherhead, the longstanding principal at Riverdale High who gets caught up in the game the teenagers are playing in an unexpected way. The episode of RIVERDALE titled “The Midnight Club' will air Wednesday, November 7, 2018 (8:00–9:00 pm ET/PT), on The CW.”
Check out the full yearbook tease:
A few months ago, "Breakfast Club" star Molly Ringwald revisited the movie from the modern vantage point of the #MeToo movement. And just last week, the stars of the now-filming "Wonder Woman" sequel recreated the iconic "Breakfast Club" pose.
"Riverdale" Season 3 premieres Wednesday, October 10 on The CW.
