Betty & Jughead Are About To Get Even Closer on 'Riverdale'

Betty & Jughead Are About To Get Even Closer on 'Riverdale'

Bughead fans, get ready!

Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse teased at Paleyfest last night that their characters’ relationship is about to get even better after Jughead’s dad’s arrest on last night’s episode of Riverdale.

“It hurts, because I think he was really putting a little more faith into his dad this time,” Cole shared about Jughead’s mindset.

“But I think the worse truth is that he expected something like that. He’s seen it time and time again. I think this is just the one that breaks the camel’s back.”

Betty is going to have his back though, and help him through everything.

“It’s a test, obviously, but it’s also an opportunity for Betty to show her support for her boyfriend and to say, ‘I believe you. I’m with you. Let’s handle this together,’” Lili shared. “As unfortunate as it is, it’s a way for them to get closer and ban together and her to say, ‘I’m here for you.’”

Awwww!

Madelaine Petsch Reveals That Cheryl Blossom Won't Get Closure About Jason's Death

Madelaine Petsch Reveals That Cheryl Blossom Won't Get Closure About Jason's Death

With only two more weeks until the Riverdale season finale, we’re starting to wonder just what’s actually going to happen with Cheryl.

We mean, she lost her brother — the only person in the town that was “her person”.

“Jason was her everything — her mom, her dad, her brother, her only person,” Madelaine Petsch shared with Vulture. “That’s why they were so close, because he was the only person who cared about her or tried to bring her out of her shell.”

So, what’s going to happen with her in the finale? Does she get closure?

“No, sadly,” she stated. “Cheryl gets to a point to the end of the season where it’s her tipping point. It sets up season two very well.”

Madelaine adds, “She can either become an angel or a demon.”

Is it bad we’re voting demon? We love Cheryl as the villain!

The 'Riverdale' Cast Previews Jughead-Centric Episodes Ahead

The 'Riverdale' Cast Previews Jughead-Centric Episodes Ahead

The ladies of Riverdale doll up in the chicest outfits for their Paleyfest event in Los Angeles last night.

Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes, Madelaine Petsch, and Ashleigh Murray joined KJ Apa, Cole Sprouse, Casey Cott, with parents Madchen Amick, Luke Perry, and Marisol Nichols at the event to chat about what’s ahead on the show.

The biggest take away? Jughead is probably headed for a breakdown (since you know, his dad was just arrested for murder).

“I think obviously as time goes on and these characters get darker and darker and the secrets get more and more revealed, he’s one of those characters that’s going to really struggle like the rest of the town and dealing with the fact that this town can be a place of legitimate darkness,” Cole says.

He adds, “But he’s experiencing it very first hand, which of course is going to be even more complicated. I think narratively, Jughead’s most touching narrative is Episode 12. Episode 11 is a very heavy Jughead episode, but Episode 12 is even more so.”

FYI: Camila is wearing an Iorane skirt.

Cole Sprouse Weighs In on Ross Butler Leaving 'Riverdale'

Cole Sprouse Weighs In on Ross Butler Leaving 'Riverdale'

We still can’t believe that Ross Butler won’t be our Reggie Mantle anymore on Riverdale.

“He’s a really talented actor that was being tugged between two shows at the same time, and the truth was we didn’t get the priority of the actor at that time,” Cole Sprouse shared about Ross leaving the show for a possible 13 Reasons Why season two.

Cole also talked about just how important Ross‘ character Reggie actually is.

“We talk about Reggie, everyone talks about Reggie, and we all very much want Reggie to be one of the fundamental characters that he deserves to be according to the digests,” he shares.

“The truth is, the antagonizing nature of Reggie within the show would be a wonderful, wonderful balance for Archie’s narratives. It’s something Roberto [Aguirre-Sacasa] and I had talked about a little bit, and is understood,” Cole adds. “Obviously, we want to see more. We all want to see more.”

Roberto added about losing Ross, “We love Ross. We struggled to cast a Reggie. We wish we could use him more. We used him as much as we got permission to do, and are going to fight to get even more of him in season two.”

Bughead Go Through Some Major Things Tonight on 'Riverdale'

Bughead Go Through Some Major Things Tonight on 'Riverdale'

The CW’s hottest new couple looks amazing on the new poster for Riverdale…albeit a little down, don’t you think?

Betty and Jughead are going through some major things in tonight’s all-new episode, and judging by the stills in the gallery below, we don’t know how well it’s going to end up for them.

Apparently, Betty (Lili Reinhart) is slammed overseeing Homecoming and Reunion weekend, but when mom Alice (Madchen Amick) turns to Archie (KJ Apa) and Veronica (Camila Mendes) for help about the Jason Blossom investigation, she’s pissed.

And for Jughead (Cole Sprouse) — he’s starting to see his father FP (Skeet Ulrich) start to clean up his act, but is this the right time to give him another chance?

Did anyone notice the tagline on the poster? “It’s Homecoming…and Someone’s Going To Jail” — um, WHO IS GOING TO JAIL?!

Riverdale airs TONIGHT @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW.

Ross Butler Is Leaving 'Riverdale' & Reggie Will Be Recast For Season Two

Ross Butler Is Leaving 'Riverdale' & Reggie Will Be Recast For Season Two

Well, this is a bummer — Ross Butler is leaving Riverdale!

The role he originated on the CW series, Reggie, is being recast for season two, all because Ross is just so darn busy. (We figure that’s a good thing, but we’re still sad!)

“We love what Ross did with the role of Reggie [this season], but because of his commitments to other projects, we couldn’t use him nearly as much as we would have liked,” series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa said in a statement.

He adds, “[Next season], we want more Reggie on our show — he’s Archie’s rival! — and because Ross is unavailable to come back to Riverdale, we’re looking for a new Reggie. Those are big shoes to fill, but we’re confident we can find an actor who is as funny and sexy as Ross. And of course we all wish Ross the best.”

Whether one of those “commitments to other projects” is second season of 13 Reasons Why remains to be seen.

We’ll miss you Ross!

KJ Apa Broke His Hand While Filming 'Riverdale' Finale

It may be weeks away, but KJ Apa is already obsessing over Riverdale‘s finale.

The 19-year-old actor, who plays Archie, wants fans to know that it is so good (which is pretty much a given!)

And we’ve already reported that a major character may die.

But another memory that will stick in his head forever is the fact he broke his hand while filming it! (And there are pictures to prove it here.)

Eek!

Keep that in mind when you are watching the season finale of Riverdale on Thursday, May 11 @ 9PM.
