REPORT: Riverdale Adding an Unusual Archie Character in Season 3

Riverdale cast

Although Sabrina Spellman won't be coming to Riverdale anytime soon -- after all, she's far too busy with her upcoming Netflix series -- another, more obscure Archie Comics character will reportedly be introduced in Season 3.

According to That Hashtag Show, producers are casting the role of Evelyn Evernever, a supporting player in the Little Archie comics whose only true friend was a doll named Minerva. Although the character sat, largely forgotten, for years, she was reintroduced as a teenager in Archie comics, and recently played a role in Betty and Veronica: Vixens.

Evelyn Evermere

The website obtained a character breakdown for Evelyn, described as an "otherworldly, seemingly omnipresent, and a bit odd" teen who becomes Betty's neighbor. Of course, like half of Riverdale, she also may be hiding "dark secrets":

[EVELYN EVERNEVER]Female, Late Teens – Early 20’s to play Late Teens, Open Ethnicity. Otherworldly, seemingly omnipresent, and a bit odd, Evelyn is Edgar’s daughter and Betty’s new neighbor. She’s eager to befriend Betty, and is surprisingly insightful for her age, but may be hiding dark secrets about herself. (While not required, a possible direction for the role is a girl who is physically reminiscent of “Betty”.) MAJOR RECURRING GUEST STAR.

Returning Wednesday, Oct. 10, ET/PT on The CW, Riverdale stars KJ Apa, Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes, Cole Sprouse, Madeleine Petsch, Ashleigh Miller, Casey Cott, Mark Consuelos, Skeet Ulrich, Marisol Nichols, Madchen Amick and Luke Perry.
