Aside from a prequel comic and Free Comic Book Day offering, those eagerly anticipating Riverdale have much to look forward to. Up until recently, not much information regarding the series has been divulged beyond the pilot episode, but now, that’s thankfully changed.
In the synopsis for “Chapter Two: A Touch of Evil,” two things quickly become apparent: Archie Andrews’ life is extremely complicated and the murder mystery gripping the quaint town does indeed seem to serve as the backdrop for the inaugural season. Although we expect interesting developments each week, our better judgment says the unraveling of this enigma will be a marathon, not a sprint.
Speaking of the official description, you can check it out below:
As new details of Jason’s death begin to emerge, Archie (KJ Apa) pleads with Miss Grundy (guest star Sarah Habel) to come forward with what they heard at Sweetwater River. Betty (Lili Reinhart) makes an effort to mend her friendship with Archie but takes a different stance with Veronica (Camila Mendes), who is trying to make up for her actions. With rumors around her brother’s death running rampant, Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) deals with the pressure in true Queen Bee fashion, while tensions boil over when Jughead (Cole Sprouse) stumbles upon a secret Archie was hoping to keep hidden. Finally, plans for the annual fall pep rally move forward with a performance by Josie (Ashleigh Murray) and the Pussycats and a special appearance by Mayor McCoy (guest star Robin Givens.) Marisol Nichols, Madchen Amick and Luke Perry also star.
Riverdale premieres on Thursday, January 26 on The CW.
