We are only a week away from the Season 3 premiere of Riverdale and Jughead Jones and Betty Cooper have Hiram Lodge in their crosshairs. The two are looking to avenge Archie Andrews after police falsely arrested him for murder at the end of Season 2. With Archie facing serious charges, Jughead and Betty are hoping to give Hiram a little taste of his own medicine.
A new promo image for Riverdale hints that things are going to get dark this season. The image features Betty (Lilli Reinhart), Jughead (Cole Sprouse), Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes) and Archie (KJ Apa) at the center of attention.
Betty and Jughead are standing with their backs towards each other with concerned looks on their faces while Veronica is flanking Archie with her hands on her hips. Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch) rounds out the picture and looks like she is up to something.
Last season, Cheryl became a part of the Southside Serpents after she started dating Toni Topaz (Vanessa Morgan).
“Every Mystery has a Darker Truth,” the photo’s caption reads.
According to Express, the pic confirms earlier reports that Jughead and Betty are teaming up to discover what really happened with the murder. While most of their efforts will be focused on freeing Archie, they are also looking to get even with Hiram. Here’s to hoping they are successful on both fronts.
The new season will begin a couple of months after Archie’s imprisonment. Apart from Archie’s drama, fans are theorizing that one of the main storylines in Season 3 will be an epidemic.
A few months ago, Reinhart teased that an epidemic will spread through the town, and fans have a sneaky suspicion it will be tied to the mysterious crate Archie and Jughead gave to Penny Peabody last season.
Season 3 of Riverdale premieres Oct. 10 on The CW.
