'Riverdale' Scoop: Fred Andrews' Shooting Puts Everyone On The 'Defensive'

Vanessa Morgan is all decked out as Toni Topaz on the set of Riverdale in Vancouver, Canada on Thursday afternoon (September 7).

The newcomer to the crew was seen with red streaks in her hair for her character, while co-stars KJ Apa and Charles Melton were spotted heading out for a workout together.

Speaking with TVLine, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacassa hinted at what’s ahead for the show’s second season.

First things first: Fred Andrews.

The hunt for the hooded gunman “leads into darker chapters of Riverdale’s history, and puts all of our characters on the defensive,” he says.

As for Bughead and Varchie, there are challenges coming to both couples: “It’s almost like every force in the universe is out to pry Bughead apart.”

He adds, “There are going to be problems coming in multiple different directions, besieging both of our couples.

Riverdale returns in October on The CW.

Lili Reinhart Speaks Out About Death Threats Aimed at 'Riverdale' Co-Star Vanessa Morgan

Lili Reinhart Speaks Out About Death Threats Aimed at 'Riverdale' Co-Star Vanessa Morgan

Earlier this week, Vanessa Morgan revealed that she’s been receiving death threats from die-hard Bughead shippers online — and that it not okay with Lili Reinhart.

“It’s half death threats because they don’t want that [actually] happening, and there’s half that’s just all love,” Vanessa told Glamour in an interview.

She adds, “Who knows if [my character coming between Bughead] is even going to happen. People are just jumping to conclusions.”

While Vanessa seemingly brushed it all off, Lili isn’t having it.

“The fact that Vanessa is getting death threats because of her character *possibly* causing problems for the Bughead, is seriously f***ed up,” she wrote on tumblr. “If you see this happening, please stop it or report it.”

She adds, “This is a fictional couple, for god’s sake. This does not constitute sending death threats to my friend and fellow castmate.”

Vanessa Morgan Wants Her 'Riverdale' Character To Date Cheryl Blossom

Vanessa Morgan is coming into Riverdale as the only girl in a gang of guys, and she has some ideas as to just who Toni Topaz, who is bisexual, could be hooking up with.

Her number one? Cheryl Blossom!

“Because Madelaine Petsch is my best friend in real life,” Vanessa revealed in a recent interview with Bustle.

She may be messing with Bughead’s relationship status in the upcoming episodes, but there’s nothing that says Toni can’t find love with Cheryl.

In fact, Madelaine also told JJJ that she hopes Cheryl gets to explore her sexuality in season two.

“I hope she explores a love interest and explores sexuality a little bit more – and isn’t necessarily vanilla – and wants to explore all grounds of sexuality. That would be interesting to see,” Madelaine shared.

Who knows — THIS could happen!

Riverdale will premiere on Wednesday, October 11th on The CW.

She adds that Toni will be on the frontline when it comes to Bughead’s problems when the series returns, too.

“I’m the girl in the gang,” Vanessa adds. “My character is badass, and Jughead is the son of the King Serpent… why wouldn’t I [welcome] him?”

The Shannara Chronicles: New Cast & Official Season 2 Synopsis Revealed

There are five new faces that are joining The Shannara Chronicles season two — and some of them are familiar.

Malese Jow, Vanessa Morgan, Gentry White, Caroline Chikezie and Desmond Chiam will be the new faces you’ll see once the new season premieres.

Austin Butler (Wil), Ivana Baquero (Eretria), Manu Bennet (Allanon), Aaron Jakubenko (Ander), and Marcus Vanco (Bandon) will all be returning to the show as well.

In season two, The Four Lands is in chaos. The re-emergence of magic has the populace terrified, and an organization called The Crimson is hunting down magic users, using fear and intimidation to sow discord among the races. Wil, scarred by the loss of Amberle and his separation from Eretria, has turned his back on his magical destiny to become a healer.

But when a mysterious woman named Mareth saves Wil from a Crimson attack, he is forced to rejoin the fight. After reuniting with Eretria, Wil and Mareth seek out Allanon, only to learn that the Druid’s former protégé, Bandon, is on a mission to resurrect a creature of darkest evil: The Warlock Lord.

Together, our heroes must band together to take down The Crimson and prevent Bandon from unleashing an even greater threat upon the Four Lands, before it’s too late.
