Riverdale is a show that goes big or goes home.
And they don’t have a key to the house. So it’s pretty much always going big for the series.
After a complicated third season, the show returns with season four. While the premiere spells heartbreak (it will explicitly deal with the passing of Luke Perry in series), the latest teaser for the season suggests a beloved character is in peril.
Unsurprisingly, it’s Jughead (Cole Sprouse). Let’s be real, out of the main cast, the only one not often in mortal peril is Veronica (Camila Mendes).
The teaser for season four shows the people of the titular town searching for Jughead in the woods. Could this have to do with why he wasn’t with Archie (KJ Apa), Betty (Lili Reinhart), and Veronica while they burned their bloody clothes in the flash forward at the end of season three?
Only time will tell for the series. Hopefully, more How to Get Away With Murder style flash forwards will help us fill in some of the mystery as well.
Although, in the trailer, we do perhaps see where Jughead is, which appears to be locked away in a coffin. Yikes.
Check out the teaser below.
Riverdale season four will premiere on Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 8/7c on the CW.
