Riverdale Showrunner on Season 2: “It’s almost like every force in the universe is out to pry Bughead apart”

Posted on 1 min read 35 views

With just a month to go until the return of the CW’s Riverdale, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has revealed a little of what fans can expect to come in the second season of the series.

In an interview with TV Line, Aguirre-Sacasa said that the hunt for the gunman who shot Archie’s dad “leads into darker chapters of Riverdale’s history and puts all of our characters on the defensive.”

Season 2 will also introduce Veronica’s father Hiram Lodge (played by Mark Consuelos), which will introduce new mysteries into the mix. “Is he reformed? Is he still up to his dastardly deeds? Is he somehow connected to the Fred gunman?” Aguirre-Sacasa said.

As for the fan-favourite Betty and Jughead (“Bughead”) pairing, Aguirre-Sacasa revealed that the couple will face their own challenges now that they’re at different schools: “It’s almost like every force in the universe is out to pry Bughead apart,” he says, adding that Archie and Veronica might experience some issues of their own. “There are going to be problems coming in multiple different directions, besieging both of our couples.”

Riverdale stars KJ Apa, Camila Mendes, Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse, and will premiere on Wednesday, Oct. 11 at 8/7c on the CW!
