The CW's Archie Comics teen mystery/drama "Riverdale" debuted last night, and it was packed with surprising twists and shocking reveals. But that episode was, of course, just the beginning. There's a lot more "Riverdale" on the way, and a new promo for the CW series wants you to get ready for all of the upcoming broody, sexy fun.
The promo runs through all of the rave reviews "Riverdale" has received while looking ahead to what's coming up next for the reimagined Archie Andrews and company. Next week's episode is titled "A Touch of Evil," so you know things are just going to keep getting sexier and sinister-ier.
Here's a synopsis for "Chapter Two: A Touch of Evil," which airs next Thursday.
As new details of Jason’s death begin to emerge, Archie (KJ Apa) pleads with Miss Grundy (guest star Sarah Habel) to come forward with what they heard at Sweetwater River. Betty (Lili Reinhart) makes an effort to mend her friendship with Archie but takes a different stance with Veronica (Camila Mendes), who is trying to make up for her actions. With rumors around her brother’s death running rampant, Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) deals with the pressure in true Queen Bee fashion, while tensions boil over when Jughead (Cole Sprouse) stumbles upon a secret Archie was hoping to keep hidden. Finally, plans for the annual fall pep rally move forward with a performance by Josie (Ashleigh Murray) and the Pussycats and a special appearance by Mayor McCoy (guest star Robin Givens.)
Starring K.J. Apa as Archie Andrews, “Riverdale” airs Thursdays at 9 pm on The CW. The series also stars Cole Sprouse as Jughead Jones, Camila Mendes as Veronica Lodge, Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper, Ross Butler as Reggie Mantle and more. “Breakfast Club” alum Molly Ringwald will also recur as Archie’s mother Mary.
