Season 2 of Riverdale pushed the characters of Archie Comics to peak darkness. Boy-next-door Archie (K.J. Apa) was arrested for murder. Betty (Lili Reinhart) took down her serial killer dad, but not before stopping by the Whyte Werm for a very uncomfortable strip tease. Oh, and Veronica (Camila Mendes) straight-up drugged and kidnapped a guy, while Jughead (Cole Sprouse) exacted a literal pound of flesh from one of his enemies.
Oh those youths.
Yep, the iconic comic book characters were pushed to some seriously deranged places in season 2 — and, if you're a Riverdale fan, you loved every second of it. Fortunately, season 3 is promising just as much craziness.
As confirmed by spoilers for the new season, there's oodles of romantic drama, a possible cult, and a brand-new enemy for Archikins. Season 3 of Riverdale may not return until October 10, but that doesn't mean we're not analysing everything there is to know about the new season.
