Riverdale broke through in 2017 by featuring a cast of talented newcomers and hours of moody bingeworthiness. Creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa tells TV WEEK Close Up that in season three the show will continue to update the Archie Comics world for a modern audience.
"We're going to infuse this season with a lot more high school stuff, but still with all the crime, drama and mystery," he says.
The story picks up with Archie Andrews (KJ Apa) arrested for a murder seemingly orchestrated by crime boss Hiram Lodge (Mark Consuelos).
"We meet them in the premiere," Roberto says. "The Serpents, now led by Jughead [Cole Sprouse] and FP Jones [Skeet Ulrich], as well as Betty [Lili Reinhart] and Cheryl [Madelaine Petsch], are trying to maintain the peace – which quickly gets disturbed."
