SDCC 2017: Season 2 of Riverdale is Going to be Darker

The first season of Riverdale ended on a big, devastating cliffhanger which, according to our sources who attended the panel at San Diego Comic-Con, will not be resolved in the Season 2 premiere. (BOO!) However, the show promises that we’ll at least discover the fate of Archie’s dad in the second episode.

“Like the Angel of Death had come to Riverdale.” I honestly can’t parse whether that is melodramatic, cheesy, or just honest-to-God out there weirdness onscreen. And despite the long-running comic’s wholesome 50’s chic aesthetic, Archie Comics have long been willing to tackle big ideas and series topics. And this trailer promises healthy helping of all that.

Furthermore, there still no word on whether or not Sabrina, the Teenage Witch will be making an appearance.

Riverdale returns on October 11, 2017.
