If you remember, Jughead Jones is asexual in the comics, and fans were wondering if that would translate to the TV show as well.
CEO of Archie Comics, Jon Goldwater, answered some questions during 2016 New York Comic-Con.
“Archie is all about being inclusive — inclusion, getting the books out, getting them into everyone’s hands,” he said (via MTV). “You know, I think Cole, he could have his own take on things. I think Jughead in Riverdale is going to be the Jughead you know.”
Jon added, “He’s gonna be his own person, he’s gonna be a cool cat. But, you know, he has some really good friends and I think Jughead in Riverdale really is gonna epitomize all the best qualities of Jughead.”
Riverdale will premiere mid-season on The CW.
