Season 2 of Riverdale not only saw the end of Blackhood, but also saw Archie being carted away in handcuffs. So far season 3 still remains a mystery. The newest teaser for season 3 seems to answer some questions, but even then, it barely scratches the surface.
For one, we’ll get to see how Archie handles prison. We even get to see what looks like a Serpent tattoo.
“I’m excited to see how he handles himself in prison.” K.J. Apa, who plays Archie, said. “I want him to get a whole lot of tats. I want him to join a gang. I want all that. Give it to me. I mean, you never know. Honestly, you never know.”
For another, F.P. Jones (Skeet Ulrich) and Alice Cooper (Madchen Amick) can be seen in bed together, hinting at a relationship.
The most prominent part of the teaser is the darkness that is still surrounding Riverdale. There is a New Age Group called “The Farm” that seems to be some kind of cult-like organization and there are also some supernatural elements being introduced.
“Alice and Polly kind of attack [Betty], and their new weird spirituality with the Farm makes them tell her that she needs to listen to her soul and really confront her problems.” Lili Reinhart, who plays Betty Cooper, explained during the show’s San Diego Comic-Con panel. “And so Betty wants to stay far, far away from them.”
Check out the teaser below.
Despite all of the darkness in Riverdale, everyone’s love life seems to be better than ever. Bughead, Varchie, and Choni are all going strong while Moovin (Moose and Kevin) and Falice are heating up.
“Actually, it’s looking like it’s going to be pretty good for Bughead this season so far,” Cole Sprouse, who plays Jughead, revealed. “[It’s] pretty constant, pretty nice… Betty and Jughead are back to being the investigative sleuths they were in season one,” Reinhart added. “They’re back to their old selves again, which is kind of fun to see.”
The season 3 premiere of Riverdale, titled “Labor Day“, will debut on Wednesday, October 10th, at 8/7c on The CW.
