The ‘Riverdale’ Cast Cover Entertainment Weekly

The stars of the CW’s popular show Riverdale grace the cover of the new Entertainment Weekly issue, where they dish on what their characters will be up to in the show’s highly-anticipated second season (premiering Oct 11!).

Check out what each cast member had to say about what’s going on with their characters in Season 2 below!

KJ Apa for Entertainment Weekly

When Riverdale picks up in Season 2, Archie will be reeling from the aftermath of his father’s shooting and will be out for revenge — a storyline that’s new to KJ and has pushed his acting further than ever before:

“To be fair, I read that first episode of the second season and I was thinking I don’t know if I’m good enough to do this,” KJ said. “I’m a new actor. I’m new to this kind of material and I was cushioning myself. I really have learned a lot this season and I think I’ve shot some of the best stuff I’ve ever done.”

Cole Sprouse for Entertainment Weekly

As for Jughead, the Riverdale narrator will be caught between his new life at South Side High and his old life, and may potentially even join up with the Serpents.

“He undergoes a kind of radical vulnerability and change,” Cole said. “His morality is going to be really tested. It’s one of those things where Jughead is the perspective character. We see the world through his lens. He’s the soul of Riverdale. So in my own way and for the audience, whatever happens to Jughead can be seen as the world in total.”

Camila Mendes for Entertainment Weekly

Veronica’s life is also changing in the new season with the return of her father Hiram (Mark Consuelos).

“She wants to be respected as a member of the family and neither Hiram nor Hermione [Marisol Nichols] are allowing to be part of that,” Camila said. “They have a plan for Riverdale and they keep it very secret.”

Lili Reinhart for Entertainment Weekly

Betty Cooper will also go through some rough times in the new season, with a strained relationship with Jughead and this season’s new mystery.

“Not only is Betty dealing with the separation between her and her boyfriend but being in the middle of something she completely did not ask for,” Lili said. “She’s so young. Your heart goes out to Betty in season two. She gets put in the middle of a sh– storm.”

Ashleigh Murray for Entertainment Weekly

Josie will be a full-fledged member of the gang in season 2, and the budding singer could also be looking to go solo in the new season:

“There is talk of possibly Josie exploring the option of going a solo route. It’s gonna cause some issues if that does come up,” said Ashleigh.

Madelaine Petsch for Entertainment Weekly

As for Cheryl, the fiery redhead will be rising from the ashes of her burnt home this season:

“I think a lot of people read her trying to burn the house down as her breaking but it was her pulling herself together and telling her mom she’s not going to take any more crap and she’s in charge now,” said Madelaine. “She’s hell hath no fury like Cheryl scorned.”

Casey Cott for Entertainment Weekly

Kevin Keller will also be a regular character this season: “Betty kinda left Kevin hanging a little last season,” Casey said. “I think he’s lonely and it’s time maybe he says something.”
