Riverdale's Josie Will Have A Special Funko Pop Figurine For SDCC 2018!

Riverdale's Josie Will Have A Special Funko Pop Figurine For SDCC 2018!

Funko Pop made our days with the announcement that the Riverdale gang would be getting their very own figurines at Hot Topic.

But then, JJJ saw one of the images of one of the boxes, and we noticed that there was no Josie at all!

As our absolute favorite character on the show, we were seriously bummed out that she was not included in the debut line — however, Funko Pop quickly calmed our fears about Josie being forgotten altogether.

In fact, Josie is getting her own special figurine that will debut at Comic Con next year!

“Josie will be a part of our SDCC exclusives,” the company shared with us (and many fans) on Twitter. “We don’t normally comment on SDCC this far in advance, but we want to be clear that we did not forget Josie! We just have special plans for her…….”

We’re just so happy that Josie will be getting her own figurine!

SPOILERS AHEAD!

The truth is out on Riverdale — Cheryl IS Josie’s secret admirer!

After a string of kind of cryptic presents and some pretty creepy love notes — something that Josie thought Chuck Clayton was sending to her — it was revealed that Cheryl was the one with the crush on Josie. But we’re still not certain that she’s the one sending those gifts…

Madelaine Petsch opened up to ET about the surprising pairing on the show, saying that “Josie is the only real ally that Cheryl has in this school and the only person that Cheryl is willing to open up to even the littlest bit. She hasn’t really opened up to her too much, but they create a really beautiful friendship in the beginning of the season.”

“And then chaos happens,” she adds.

While Josie doesn’t know the identity of her admirer, Ashleigh Murray does love working with Madelaine on camera.

“She’s just such a ray of sunshine to be around, so being able to play with her as Josie and Cheryl [is great.] We had a really lovely moment in one of the episodes that’s coming up that I really enjoyed and we got to walk up and down the hallways together and just laughing and joking about things together in between takes. I just have the best time with her.”

We’ll have to wait and see if Cheryl and Josie’s relationship will turn into something else though.

Riverdale's Ashleigh Murray & Madelaine Petsch Dish On Cheryl & Josie's Friendship

One of the things that JJJ is looking forward to the most on Riverdale‘s season two is Cheryl and Josie’s friendship.

Stars Ashleigh Murray and Madelaine Petsch opened up to Teen Vogue about the emerging, and unlikely friendship between the two.

You’re going see some interesting things,” Ashleigh shared. “I can’t really tell too much, but you’ll definitely be able to see how they get along, the different jokes they have with each other, and just the beauty behind the friendship that we didn’t get to see in season one.”

Madelaine adds, “We’re finishing up an episode where you finally get to see the friendship between us. I feel like we talk about it a lot, you don’t see it a lot on screen. You see a lot more of Cheryl and Josie interacting.”

“Josie actually becomes part of the River Vixens, so they interact a lot in that way. But so far, there hasn’t been a bunch of cheerleading. It’s been more about the big mystery of season one…”

“[She is] kind of the only person that Cheryl really has on her side – even though I’m sure the gang would love to be friends with her, if she was just nice to them.”

Riverdale returns on Wednesday, October 11th on The CW.

Riverdale's Ashleigh Murray is Tired of Being Mistaken For Other Actresses of Color

Riverdale's Ashleigh Murray is Tired of Being Mistaken For Other Actresses of Color

Riverdale actress Ashleigh Murray is drumming up her share of fame playing Josie on the hit TV show — but that doesn’t mean everything is smooth-sailing.

In a new interview, Ashleigh gets candid about being mistaken for other actresses, something that doesn’t happen to her white co-stars.

“It happens all the time,” she told Teen Vogue. “It still happens. It’s something that I have dealt with for a while. I noticed it when I first started working. Even in commercials, my friends or friends of friends would tag me in photos and be like, ‘Oh my God, is this you?’ It’s the most random other black girl. It doesn’t look anything like me, we’re not even the same age.”

“There’s always this underlying perception and that joke of every black person looks alike,” she continued. “You can label that for any race, but it tends to happen a lot with people of color. Specifically, with black women. It’s just unnecessary. People aren’t confusing Madelaine with anyone else, or Lili, or Cole, or KJ, or anybody. I think it’s something that needs to be talked about and pointed out.”

We’re glad that Ashleigh is speaking out and drawing attention to racism when she sees it. As for her fans, we would hope that in the future they would do a little more research before commenting.
