Riverdale Season 2 - Official Comic Con Trailer
Everything we know about "Riverdale" season 2 so far...
UPDATE 24/7/17: After a pretty successful Comic Con weekend, we now have a bunch of spoilers and secrets about what we can expect to come out of Riverdale season two and to be honest, it doesn't look like any of the characters are going to have a smooth ride. Here's all the new information we found out during Riverdale's weekend at SDCC.
PHEW! Is it October 11th yet?
WATCH: The Riverdale cast discuss Season 2
The cast of Riverdale spill the beans on the next season of the show.
There will be 22 episodes in season two as confirmed by KJ Apa on Instagram. The show will air the premiere on October 11 and probably wrap up around late Spring with a hiatus (and inevitable cliffhanger) over the Christmas break.
#Riverdale has a premiere date! Wednesday, October 11, at 8:00 pm! The countdown begins…now.— RobertoAguirreSacasa (@WriterRAS) June 8, 2017
Episode 1: "Chapter Fourteen: A KISS BEFORE DYING"
Episode 2 is called "Chapter Fifteen: NIGHTHAWKS", episode 3 is called "Chapter Sixteen: THE WATCHER IN THE WOODS", episode 4 is called "Chapter Seventeen: "THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN" and episode 5 is called "Chapter Eighteen: WHEN A STRANGER CALLS".
Well, unless *someone* ends up dead (Fred...), then you can probably bet that all your faves including KJ Apa, Cole Sprouse, Lili Reinhart and Camila Mendes will be back in action as Archie, Jughead, Betty and Veronica respectively.
Reggie will now be played Charles Melton instead of Ross Butler whose role in 13 Reasons Why means he's too busy to take on a larger role on Riverdale.
Veronica's mysterious father Hiram Lodge is officially out of prison and will be making his grand return to Riverdale when the season starts. He will be played by Mark Consuelos. Ummm, #HotDadsOfRiverdale, amirite?!
Cole Sprouse took to Reddit to answer a few questions and revealed that we could be looking at a "much darker and much weirder" season. "Tone and genre elements that we touched upon in the cinematography and narrative are getting a big emphasis season 2."
Season two will no doubt be focused on the repercussions of the robbery at Pop's Diner and the fate of Archie's dad Fred. There's also the pressing matters of Alice Cooper's long lost son and the potential appearance of Sabrina. Oh, and if that insane zombie theory comes true we could be looking at some kind of undead storyline. Lili Reinhart already has some theories of her own though... #DarkBetty
Season 2 of Riverdale could mean..... more dark Betty?— Lili Reinhart (@lilireinhart) March 7, 2017
Considering the first episode of the new season is titled "A Kiss Before Dying", then it sounds like someone is ~definitely~ going to die. We wouldn't put it pass the writers to surprise us all with another murder. It hasn't been confirmed that Fred has kicked the bucket but it's not looking good for Archie's dad but he has been spotted on set for the first episode of the season so there's still a bit of hope, kids.
Earlier in the year an INSANE fan theory started circulating that Archie would die and would come back as a zombie. Turns out, it wasn't that wild of a guess after all.
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa revealed that he had originally thought Rivierdale would be a Buffy-type show with more supernatural happenings. "Ultimately we ended up... starting with a more grounded, less supernatural version of that because we thought we could always go there, but if we started there, it would be hard to take that away", said Roberto. "So start a little more grounded and normal, and then introduce something supernatural as opposed to, once you’re supernatural, it’s going to be hard to go back to non-supernatural, so that was kind of the thinking behind that."
And then when asked if Riverdale would be heading down that zombie route, he replied "There’s a chance that happens." Holy fuck.
