A pilot episode has no guarantees of the series making it. It is the first step towards a new series. Lots of pilots are created but only a few are picked up as a new series.
The CW has a ton of comic based television series. If Riverdale is picked up by the CW, it will be their fifth comic based series (The Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, and iZombie). All of these series are produced by Greg Berlanti except iZombie.
