A slew of new photos from the season two premiere episode of Riverdale were released online today. Season two of the Archie Comics adaptation keeps the murder-mystery aspect from the first season alive, with Archie's father Fred potentially biting the dust.
The promotional photos, which are shrouded in mystery and brooding, highlight many of the series' key players, including Archie, Veronica, Cheryl, Betty, Kevin, Josie and the Pussycats and a whole lot more. Riverdale's second season sees Archie looking for revenge after his father's shooting, and spells trouble for Betty and Veronica's friendship. A new character, the Sugar Man, has been teased too.
Following months of hints from the producers of Riverdale, and speculation from critics and fans alike, the CW and Warner Bros. Television have confirmed they will develop a drama based on the Archie Comics series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. The series is based on a horror comic series by the same name. Written and executive produced by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the project is planned to debut during the 2018-19 television season as a companion to Riverdale.
Returning Oct. 11 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on the CW, Riverdale stars K.J. Apa as Archie Andrews, Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper, Camila Mendes as Veronica Lodge, Cole Sprouse as Jughead Jones, Madelaine Petsch as Cheryl Blossom, Ashleigh Murray as Josie McCoy and Casey Cott as Kevin Keller.
