The Archie comic adaptation, ‘Riverdale’, became an instant hit when it came out. The first two seasons were subjects of critical praise and love from the audience. The series, which was originally planned as a movie by the Warner Bros, follows the adventures of Archibald Andrews, a high-school football player, in his hometown of Riverdale as he discovers the diabolic in the darkness. The show has constantly made it to the Saturn awards, despite not raking in Golden Globes or Emmys. The near-perfect score on Google reviews and a 7.7 on IMDb, though, tells a different story.
Riverdale Season 3 Cast: Who’s in it?
The main cast of the show remained intact for season 3. The core characters Archie Andrews (played by KJ Apa), Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes), Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse) and Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) were back, including the supporting cast that was seen in the previous seasons. While no substantial new entries were announced for the season, with Riverdale, one can always expect a twist in the tale. There is a popular spoiler theory going on that indicates that Archie might get killed by Hiram and hence, will not return in the upcoming season. We’ll update the page as we hear more.
The stereotyping of Cheryl Blossom’s character has received flak from commentators. Many love the character and feel she is hard done by. Allegations of character-troping have been thrown about. As the season comes to a stop, there’s a general prayer that goes out for the character of Blossom to live and come back again.
Riverdale Season 3 Plot: What is it about?
While the third season has already seen gut-wrenching twists, the storyline of the fourth season will definitely materialize on how season 3 concludes. The first season, which had 13 episodes in total, was a huge success and certainly set the tone for the series. The neo-noir elements of the show complimented a taut-storyline, give it an atmospheric feel and are the reasons for its wild popularity. Another reason for its favour with the teen population is its simplicity and deftness in portraying adolescence and teenhood, dividing time equally presenting the problems and the happier moments. In Archie, we have the quintessential-reliable guy everyone is freaked out of. Betty Cooper, on the other hand, is symbolic of us, the teens who never could have their crushes. The mystery at the core of the first season is the death of Jason Bloom. Through a myriad of twists and turns, it is eventually revealed that Clifford murdered Jason, something which was not expected by the audience. Even some critics were taken aback by the twist and expressed surprise.
