New Riverdale Photos: Bughead, Archie On Trial And More
By Chris E. Hayner | @ChrisHayner on
What a horribly cursed town Riverdale is, especially if your name is Archie Andrews (KJ Apa). The teen has been through a lot in two seasons. He slept with his teacher, started and ended a football career, seemingly started and ended a music career, helped track a serial killer, joined the mafia, and now has been framed for murder.
The first photos for Riverdale Season 3 have arrived and it looks like that little framed for murder problem isn't going away for at least half an episode. In the photos, Archie is in court, being represented by his mom (Molly Ringwald). Across the courtroom is the prosecutor, Ms. Wright (Penelope Ann Miller).
It doesn't seem like his trial will last long, though, as other photos from the episode show Archie as a free man, hanging out at the ol' swimming hole with his friends Jughead (Cole Sprouse), Betty (Lili Reinhart), and Veronica (Camila Mendes). Chances are he wouldn't be allowed to hang out with his friends and go swimming if he were found guilty.
What these photos don't do is give any hints about the overarching story for Season 3. However, given that it was Hiram (Mark Consuelos) that framed Archie for murder, it seems the war between the mafia boss and his former teen underling is far from over.
Riverdale returns to The CW on Wednesday, October 10. Before then, check out our spoilers and teases for Season 3.
