The town of Riverdale may get its very own cult leader in Season 3.

According to That Hashtag Show, Edgar Evernever will join the small town. The report describes Evernever as a "cult leader" and speculates that he may be the same character who, in the Season 2 finale, Polly claimed help her recover from the murder of Jason Blossom.

[EDGAR EVERNEVER]Male, Late 30’s – Early 40’s, Open Ethnicity. A recent arrival in Riverdale with his daughter Evelyn, Edgar is a new-age health “guru” who has helped Alice get her life together after the events of Season Two. He’s attractive, in a neighborly way, and charismatic—a wise, comforting presence. (An actor with ‘90’s-2000’s pop-culture cachet is a plus.) MAJOR RECURRING GUEST STAR.

A recent character breakdown claimed that Evelyn Evernever, Edgar's daughter, will also play a role in Riverdale Season 3. It's unclear how the addition of these two characters will tie into the plot lines continuing from the Season 2 finale.
