The CW’s comic universe is doing well. No, not the Arrowverse — which is doing fine. Nor iZombie, which is also doing fine — but the Archie Comics universe they’ve tapped into with Riverdale.
The hit series returns this October to answer that burning question… not “Who shot Fred Andrews (Luke Perry)?” but why did they shoot him? Could the Black Hood be a costumed vigilante coming to get Fred for something he did in his past? Is the killer a hitman paid for by someone who olds a grudge against the Andrews family? Or was it just a random shooting? I doubt that last one.
A new trailer for the Riverdale Season 2 premiere shows Archie (K.J. Apa), Jughead (Cole Sprouse), Betty (Lili Reinhart), and Veronica (Camila Mendes) reacting to the events and talking about the motive — and there is a series camera pan to Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) when they talk about somebody possibly holding a grudge. And there is a lineup of guys in black ski masks. How cool would it be if they cast someone like Jason Priestley, Ian Ziering, or Brian Austin Green as the killer?
Riverdale Season 2 premieres October 11th on the CW.
