The CW is rolling out a lot of four to five-minute long videos that they’re showing at Comic-Con today. And to go with the Riverdale panel, they shared a blooper reel that will be appearing on the home release of the first season, and then a short trailer for Riverdale Season 2.
The trailer picks up right after last season, with Archie (K.J. Apa) checking his father Fred (Luke Perry) into the hospital for a gunshot wound. There’s a quite touching moment when Veronica (Camila Mendes) goes to hug Archie, then Betty (Lili Reinhart) hugs his other side, and then Jughead (Cole Sprouse) wraps his arms around all three…it seemed like a fitting moment to me.
It’s obvious that the town is still reeling from the Jason Blossom murder, now to have Fred Andrews shot is going to strip away the last of what innocence was there. And then there’s the fear that the man who shot Fred may have been a hired killer. But if you think we’re done with the Blossoms, thing again. We get a quick glimpse of Cherry (Madelaine Petsch) soothing her mother Penelope (Nathalie Boltt) in a very creepy manner.
Riverdale returns on its new night, Wednesday, October 11th at 8 p.m. ET on the CW.
