Trailers, News and Spoilers

With the news that the third season of our favorite series is about to air, a trailer dropped at San Diego Comic-Con and it was the subject of some jokes, especially when Chic Cooper became Black Hood’s apprentice. . While the trailer hinted at Alice joining Penny’s cult, it also hinted that Varchie (Veronica and Archie) wouldn’t let the fact that Veronica’s parents had almost definitely sentenced Archie to assassination for murder. It showed Veronica confronting her father Hiram and teasing that Archie wouldn’t be in jail for very long.

Season 3 is said to have a flashback episode that will see more secrets spill out. In this episode, all of the younger cast members played their high school parents in the 90s. Reinhart as young Alice, Sprouse will play young FP, Apa vs. Fred Andrews, Mendes will portray Hermione, Madelaine Petsch will be her mother Penelope and Ashleigh Murray will bring young Sierra McCoy to life.

In episode 4, which also happens to be the flashback episode, the big murder mystery would be shown. Series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa explained that the murder victims presented a game called “Griffins & Gargoyles”. The children had discovered that their parents had also played in high school and that a similar murder had taken place then.

Additionally, during Comic-Con 2018, it was revealed that the parents would be filming many more scenes together. Maybe it’s because it’s about to be revealed that they share a big secret.

Bad news for Archie’s legal situation. Ms. Wright is a savvy and eloquent lawyer, she is absolutely determined to ensure that Archie is imprisoned. According to a CW press release, she will intertwine different moments of his young life in order to present him as a dangerous and violent sociopath, capable of committing a heinous crime.

Archie may not be the only heat candidate. The lives of other favorite characters could be at stake, including the main characters, as it was already teased that there was death from the start of the season. A promo posted by CW suggests that Jughead would have another chance to die if he wasn’t careful.

Against speculation that there could be some kind of crossover between the series and fellow Archie Comics, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Ashleigh Murray, one of the cast members, who plays Josie McCoy, claims that he doesn’t there will be nothing like it.

The circumstances surrounding Archie’s arrest and the charges following Cassidy Bullock’s murder will kick off the drama in Season 3 as the gang attempts to #FreeArchie. While we already know he didn’t commit the crime, the presence of Hiram Lodge, who continues to execute well on his plans to control not only Riverdale, but the ever-growing SoDale as well, would make it difficult for him to escape. This storyline would apparently mark one of the main conflicts of the season.
