Riverdale Season 2 will premiere in the US tonight, before making its way to the shores of the UK via Netflix tomorrow. Safe to say, there is excitement…
If you didn’t watch the first series and are wondering what the obsession is – this is for you… Riverdale follows a group of teenagers in America, going through the trials and tribulations of high school. The first series focused on the effect a murder had on the small town of Riverdale. Throw in Veronica Lodge – daughter of a notorious criminal, a formidable cast and supporting sub-plots, and the ingredients were certainly there for a fantastic run. Riverdale proved hugely popular, which has resulted in anticipation of the second season. So, we have the key questions and facts covered, take a look…
How Did Season One End Again?
In tragic fashion – main character Archie Andrews saw his father shot. His impending death and fallout will form the basis for the opening episode. Archie and Veronica form a couple, while Betty was concerned at Judghead’s apparent willingness to join the Southside Serpents. Veronica’s father Hiram Lodge was set to be released from prison. Oh, and the father of the Blossom family commit suicide. This all sets up Season Two!
Who is returning?
The gang are all back together, while there are some new arrivals too! KJ Apa appears as Archie, with Cole Sprouse reprising his role as Jughead. Lili Reinhardt appears as Betty Cooper, with Camila Mendes as Veronica Lodge. Supporting actors and actresses also returning include Madchen Amick as Alice Cooper and Madelaine Petsch as Cheryl Blossom. One of the most intriguing areas of Season 2 will be the arrival of Hiram Lodge – set to be portrayed by Mark Consuelos. Vanessa Morgan is the other major cast arrival – she will play a potential love interest of Jughead’s and member of the Southside Serpents.
So What Will Happen in Season 2?

The intrigue around Hiram Lodge will continue – could this be linked to the murder of Archie’s Dad? How will Archie cope with this? Will Jughead turn away from Betty and go to the Southside Serpents.
