Madelaine Petsch Teases Cheryl's Softer Side in 'Riverdale' Season 2

Madelaine Petsch is talking all about what’s ahead for Cheryl Blossom in Riverdale‘s upcoming season two.

Speaking with Teen Vogue, the actress dished that it’s her clothes that may be telling the biggest story of all.

“The wardrobe is even more amplified for Cheryl in season two. I just had a fitting yesterday and everything is … I kind of take it as the red that Cheryl wore a lot in season one was something that her parents enforced upon her,” she explains. “Like red was part of the Blossom family.”

But red isn’t the only color you’ll see on her this season.

Madelaine adds, “In this season, she still wears red, but she’s kind of taking everything into her own hands, so even her outfits are more tailored to her and less about making her family happy. It’s very interesting.”

“I think Cheryl kind of shows her emotions and the way she’s feeling through her clothes, and the way she styles [her outfits] and her makeup and her nails. It’s small details like that that we’re really fine-tuning in season two, which I’m really excited about.

Madelaine also says that you’ll see a lot more of Cheryl on screen this season: “Cheryl becomes a lot softer on camera this season…The breaks, the cracks in her façade. The walls come down in very interesting ways.”

“She’s a lot more involved with the gang this season, and you see this really vulnerable little girl in the first six episodes of the season that I think people need to see in order to understand where Cheryl is in her life.”

Riverdale premieres on Wednesday, October 11th @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.
