‘Riverdale’: Camila Mendes Teases “Superheroes vs. Supervillains” in Season 3

Riverdale’s sophomore season was definitely a wild ride, but fans weren’t prepared for the shocking finale that found Hiriam Lodge (Mark Consuelos) pulling the ultimate bad guy move and having Archie set up and arrested for a murder that he didn’t commit. It was a surprising ending that is certainly setting up for a more grounded season 3 that comic book fans will enjoy, a sentiment Camila Mendes echoed while speaking with ET earlier this month.

While Veronica (Mendes) spent a majority of season 2 trying to get a leg up in the Lodge family business, season 3 will provide the perfect opportunity for her to truly stand up to him and his villainous ways.

Hiriam wasn’t the only villainous Dad that Riverdale was dealing with in season 2 though. The Black Hood continued to wreak havoc on the town and residents throughout the season before being revealed as Betty’s (Lili Reinhart) father Hal. With Archie in prison and the girl’s dads both letting their true colors shine, it’s the perfect opportunity for the original gang to all come together on screen, something that the cast was surely missing during season 2.

[row]”It’s something I’m very much pushing for, that you do see the kids interact more as a group,” Reinhart said in the interview.[/row]

Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa posted out a photo of the 3×01 script, revealing the episode’s title to be “Labor Day” and an excerpt from Archie Comics, which the show is based on. The title could mean that the series is doing a bit of a time jump and will be picking up as the gang is gearing up for another year of school, which means that fans will be right in the thick of the fallout of the finale’s events.

The third season of Riverdale will premiere October 10th on The CW.
