Riverdale stars share their in­sights on sea­son three

OK! (Australia) - - Contents -

Riverdale broke through in 2017 by fea­tur­ing a cast of tal­ented new­com­ers and hours of moody binge­wor­thi­ness. Cre­ator Roberto Aguirre-sacasa tells TV Week Close Up that in sea­son three the show will con­tinue to up­date the Archie Comics world for a mod­ern au­di­ence.

‘We’re go­ing to in­fuse this sea­son with a lot more high school stuff, but still with all the crime, drama and mys­tery,’ he says.

The story picks up with Archie An­drews (KJ Apa) ar­rested for a mur­der seem­ingly or­ches­trated by crime boss Hi­ram Lodge (Mark Con­sue­los).

‘We meet them in the premiere,’ Roberto says. ‘The Ser­pents, now led by Jughead [Cole Sprouse] and FP Jones [Skeet Ul­rich], as well as Betty [Lili Rein­hart] and Ch­eryl [Madelaine Petsch], are try­ing to main­tain the peace – which quickly gets dis­turbed.’

Here, the cast share their in­sights on Riverdale 3.0…

KJ APA as ARCHIE ‘ARCHIE IS TRY­ING TO RE­DEEM HIM­SELF’ New Zealand-born ac­tor KJ – who played Kane Jenk­ins for two years in NZ soap Short­land Street – re­veals that Archie is in a fix. ‘He’s on trial for the mur­der of Cas­sidy Bul­lock,’ KJ, 21, says. ‘Even though we know he didn’t do it, Archie’s re­ally try­ing to re­deem him­self.’ KJ adds that he’s wel­com­ing the new dy­namic for Archie. ‘I’m ex­cited to shoot all the prison stuff,’ he ad­mits. ‘I’m stoked that the sto­ry­lines are pretty dark, be­cause it’s more chal­leng­ing. It’s al­ways good to be un­com­fort­able as an ac­tor.’
