Welcome back to RIVERDALE!
Not obsessed just yet? You soon will be...
Some call it Twin Peaks meets Dawson’s Creek, others have branded it the best thing since The O.C., but however you choose to describe Archie Comics- based teen drama series Riverdale, one thing’s for certain – it’s seriously addictive.
So we’re making it our mission to ensure you’re up to speed before Season Two picks up the story. Here’s where we’re at...
Season One introduced us to our new fave core four – Archie ( KJ Apa), Betty ( Lili Reinhart), Veronica ( Camila Mendes) and Jughead ( Cole Sprouse).
V is the new girl in town and befriends Betty, who’s in love with her childhood bestie and neighbour Archie, who bulked up, got popular and grew apart from his best mate Jughead.
Jughead starts dating Betty after Archie rejects her to eventually hook up with V, who’s moved to Riverdale from New York with her mum after her super-rich dad was jailed for embezzlement. Still with us?
As the gang navigate the usual dramz of high school – from nosy parents to drugs and teen pregnancies – they also get caught up in solving the murder of their classmate Jason Blossom ( Trevor Stines), the twin brother of Riverdale High’s queen bee Cheryl ( Madelaine Petsch).
Season One wrapped with that mystery being solved, but left us with another possible whodunnit scenario after Archie’s dad Fred ( Luke Perry) is shot in the chest and left lying in a pool of blood.
Up-to-date now? Great, ’cos we’re about to drop some major spoilers for Season Two !
JUGHEAD & BETTY ARE DUNZO!
Nooo! With Jughead moving over to Southside to dig up dirt on his jailbirddad,jailbirddad, his relationship with Betty is put to the test.
And did you notice him putting on the Serpents jacket during in the Season One finale? That spells trouble!
“It’s almost like every force in the universe is out to pry Bughead apart,” says showrunner
But something tells us Betty won’t be single for long, with a new character, Southside Serpents gang member Toni Topaz ( Vanessa Morgan), making a move.
“My character is bisexual – this is 100 per cent important,” says Vanessa.
VERONICA GETS MARRIED?!
If you’ve been living under a rock, you’d have missed those leaked on-set photos of Veronica in a wedding gown,g flanked by Betty, JosieJ ( Ashleigh Murray) and CherylC as bridesmaids!
So after she and Archie, er, sealeds the deal in the Season One finale, could things be progressing faster than ever?
Hmm... Maybe not, because Jason Blossom also appears in the wedding scene, so unless he’s returning as a zombie, it’s likely to be a dream sequence!
SABRINA, THE TEENAGE WITCH, , FLIES IN!
With a darker, more supernatural vibe teased for Season Two, fans are buzzing for the introduction of our fave teen witch!
“Sabrina... She’s going to come,” says KJ Apa. “Yeah, she comes in the last episode.” Don’t expect an appearance by
