'Riverdale's Core Four Friendship Might Be Threatened in Season 3 Because Of This

We’ve gotten a little preview on what will come with season three on Riverdale – but showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is warning us more.

The core four – Archie, Veronica, Betty and Jughead – might be torn apart even more than they were in season two; and it will all be because Archie was arrested in the finale.

“In a weird way, Archie, Betty, Veronica, and Jughead, they’re so different they shouldn’t be friends, really,” he shared with EW. “They’re all such different archetypes, as we’ve talked about and dramatized a bunch.”

“Archie is like the everyman glue that holds them together. He’s friends with Jughead, he’s friends with Betty, he’s dating Veronica. Jughead and Veronica don’t necessarily have a friendship. It feels like their friendship grows out of Archie,” Roberto continues.

Archie’s arrest brings more of a conflict than he even realizes, too.

“The idea of Archie being thrust into a situation that potentially takes him away from the core four does threaten the integrity of the core four. Veronica and Hiram ended the season at odds. I don’t think this is going to help that at all. It is going to set up a big central conflict in season 3.”

Riverdale season 2 will start streaming on Netflix next week!
