‘Riverdale’ Season 2: 10 Things We Need To See
The CW was in need of another hit teen drama, and it delivered what it promised with Riverdale. The new series took the beloved characters of the Archie comics and put a twist on their relationships and personalities, and of course the quaint little town of Riverdale. Season one had fans hooked with its amazing young cast, a gripping murder storyline, and some shocking revelations, but also left fans with a lot of questions. Riverdale was given an early renewal for season two which means it has to meet a lot of high expectations to ensure the series continues and becomes one of TV’s dominating teen dramas. Here are 10 things we need to see in season two:
10. Background on the Adults
While Betty, Archie, Jughead, and Veronica were busy dealing with their own drama and relationships, the Riverdale adults had enough of their own drama going on. F.P. Jones, Fred Andrews, and The Coopers began hinting at their own rather sketchy pasts and interactions with each other before their kids. One of the biggest revelations was that Riverdale’s most upstanding citizen, Alice Cooper, used to be a Southside Serpent herself and there might be more to her history with F.P. Jones than anyone realizes. Hopefully season two will again heavily feature the adult characters and further explore their stories and pasts with flashbacks to the ’80s and what they were really like back then.
9. Jughead’s Future
Archie Andrews was supposed to be the central Riverdale character, but it took no time at all for Jughead Jones to become the most intriguing character on the show to follow. Fans saw Jughead go through a lot of ups and downs in season one, but it all came to a head when he was offered a Southside Serpents jacket as a thanks for his dad not giving up any of their names while he was in prison. Betty looked on in horror as Jughead accepted the jacket and put it on, making many wonder exactly what path he was going to take and if being a Serpent is in his future.
