Things are get­ting dark in Riverdale! Stars KJ Apa, Lili Rein­hart, Cole Sprouse and Camila Men­des talk sea­son two


OK! (Australia) - - Contents -

When Riverdale de­buted this year, no-one could’ve an­tic­i­pated the fan­dom it would amass. Mur­der, mys­tery and ro­mance dom­i­nated our Net­flix each week – and ac­cord­ing to the star who plays hero Archie An­drews, KJ Apa, sea­son two will turn things up a notch when it re­turns on Oc­to­ber 12.

‘[It’s] so much more sub­ver­sive and more dra­matic and in­tense,’ KJ spills of the new sea­son, which fol­lows a jaw-drop­ping sea­son one fi­nale that saw (SPOILER ALERT!) Archie’s fa­ther Fred get shot by a mys­tery gun­man, Ch­eryl Blos­som burn down her fam­ily home after learn­ing her fa­ther killed her brother Ja­son, and Betty Cooper find­ing out she has a se­cret brother! But what’s freak­ing fans out more are fears Betty and her beau Jug­head Jones will split!

Ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer Roberto Aguir­reSa­casa spills, ‘Bug­head is pretty strong, and pretty un­de­ni­able, and pretty epic, but you know, even the most epic of ro­mances have trou­ble – and trou­ble of­ten comes as a third party.’ En­ter Toni Topaz! ‘It is con­ceiv­able that Toni will po­ten­tially test the lim­its of Bug­head.’

Vanessa Mor­gan, who por­trays Jug­head’s ru­moured temptress, ad­mits she’s re­ceived the odd death threat over her char­ac­ter’s sto­ry­line, but she isn’t fazed by Toni’s haters. In fact, she wel­comes them! ‘I stir it up a bit for Bug­head, I’m part of South­side,’ she teases.
