Lili Reinhart Spills Major Tea About 'Riverdale' Season 3's Theme: 'It's Kind of A Crisis'

With just two more days until the season three premiere of Riverdale, we’re getting a ton of new intel about the new season and Lili Reinhart spilled a lot over the weekend at New York Comic Con.

Speaking on a panel with co-stars KJ Apa, Madchen Amick and Luke Perry, the 23-year-old actress opened up about the season’s theme, playing a young Alice Cooper and more. Check it:

On this season’s theme: “I would describe the main mystery in the first half of the season as sort of an epidemic in Riverdale. It involves everyone in the town, and it’s kind of like a crisis…I was nervous [about the first script], and you don’t know why yet. I really had to put myself in kind of a vulnerable state.”

On channeling Madchen Amick to play a young Alice: “I have to say, the makeup and hair process helped a lot. I have very curly, long hair…thinking like Twin Peaks vibes [looks to Madchen]. I do my own makeup on the show this season, so I was looking at pictures of Madchen when she was on Twin Peaks and kind of darkening the eyebrows and using the lip liner. It was really fun. As soon as I had the look going, it really just came naturally. When that episode was over, I was sad, because I missed playing young Alice. I think the episode is going to be a fan favorite.”

On the writers not taking suggestions from fans and sticking to their own instincts: “It would be so much less interesting if everything fans wanted to happen on the show, happened. I feel like the steam would run out really quickly. I think it’s good that the writers kind of continue [to write] what they want. It’s not anyone else’s vision, it’s Robert’s and the writers’. That’s all that matters.”

Riverdale returns Wednesday, October 10th on The CW.
