A new teaser for Season 4 of The CW's Riverdale spells bad news for the denizens of the eponymous town.
The footage begins with Archie, Betty, Veronica and company trecking through the woods searching for a missing Jughead. Shortly thereafter, we see a shadowy figure club Betty in the back of the head with the butt of a shotgun. However, not even the inherent drama of Riverdale can stop the teens from toasting to their senior year of high school.
Of course, Season 4 will begin on a rather somber note as the series pays tribute to the late Luke Perry, who played Archie's father Fred Andrews before suddenly passing away from a massive stroke in March. Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa described the episode as "Probably the most important episode of Riverdale we'll do this year, if not ever. A tribute to our fallen friend."
Returning to The CW on Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 8 p.m. EST, Riverdale stars KJ Apa, Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes, Cole Sprouse, Madelaine Petsch, Casey Cott, Mark Consuelos, Skeet Ulrich, Marisol Nichols and Madchen Amick.
