The ‘Riverdale’ Cast Cover Entertainment Weekly

Posted on 3 min read 119 views

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

KJ Apa

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

Madelaine Petsch

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.”

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 66 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.”

Camila Mendes talks playing Veronica on ‘Riverdale’: “It was the perfect fit”

Posted on 3 min read 265 views

Actress Camila Mendes recently chatted with Glamour magazine, where she opened up on her role as Veronica on the CW’s new show Riverdale, how she relates to her character, and who she wants Veronica to explore a relationship with.

During the interview, Camila discussed how she felt about playing Veronica and not wanting to play a Latina stereotype:

“I had been auditioning for about a year, and a lot of the roles I went out for didn’t feel…you kind of know, as an actor, when you get a script, if you’re like, “Can I actually play this? Is a casting director going to put me in this role? I’m not going to play this. I wouldn’t cast me as this.” You go out for it anyway because you want to get the exposure, and you want people to see you and feel like you’re doing something with your life. [Laughs.] This role came along, and it was the perfect fit. Everything about it—I had her on the surface of who I am.

“[I also liked] the fact that she was Latina, and they weren’t trying to push any stereotype on her. She just was Latina, which is how I feel. I’m a Brazilian—full blood, parents born and raised, and I lived there for a little bit—but I didn’t grow up there. I’m not as Latina as sometimes these castings demand you to be—this “urban” idea of what a Latina is. I’m American; I was born and raised in America, and I don’t want to fake who I am to fit a stereotype. This came along, and I felt like I didn’t have to try to be anything that I’m not. Obviously, I’m putting on a character, but I’m not faking anything. I just felt really strongly about her. I grew up watching Gossip Girl and The O.C., and I looked up to Blair Waldorf and Summer Roberts.”

Camila also revealed that she relates to Veronica and her mother’s struggle to make a new life for themselves in Riverdale:

“That’s something that I’ve experienced too, growing up—when you start to see your parents struggle. The first time you start to see that, when they show that side to you—whether it’s financial trouble or there’s a divorce, whatever it is in your family—there’s going to be a point where something’s going to start to fall apart. When you see that and your parents going through that, it’s like you pull back the curtain. You’re seeing the backstage, as opposed to the front stage. You see them as people. The fact that just because they’re older or more experienced in life doesn’t mean they’ve learned from all their mistakes, doesn’t mean they’re changed. They’re continually dealing with issues they’ve been dealing with their entire life! And some people never learn. At a certain age you can’t really change; you just are who you are. I think Veronica sees that her parents are very much as lost as she is. It’s a coming-of-age story for everyone. Everyone’s growing. It’s not just the kids.”

As for which relationships she’d like to see Veronica explore, Camila said:

“I do think Veronica’s really good for Archie. I know I’m biased!”

“I feel like they’re exploring this darker side of Archie, and he’s dealing with the darkness of Riverdale. I think Veronica plays into that. She’s seen a darker world; she’s not from Riverdale. She’s seen some shit. She’s been through shit. If anyone can help him through whatever he’s going through, it’s her. She’s kind of the strength in his life—or she’s stability. She can also recognize his…I think both of them are a little bit impulsive and a little bit unstable.”

Riverdale airs Thursdays on The CW at 9:00 P.M. ET.
