When will filming begin?
Production is set to kick off in July, meaning we’ll get more behind-the-scenes info then, and we know that season 3 will obviously have to deal with the outcome of season 2’s finale.
A.k.a Archie’s arrest, his relationship with Harim and the fact that Jughead now has a lot of enemies.
What can we expect from the plot?
Supporting characters, such as Cheryl, Tony, Kevin and Josie will get to take over the spotlight.
Chatting to Deadline about what we can expect, Roberto said: “one idea is that we might shift the focus around on different characters, some of our supporting players as well to kind of tell a tapestry of what life is like.”
And the farm Polly lived on? Where she was ‘healed’, will apparently be an aspect that’s explored a little more, according to Roberto, and we’re so here for some weird cult vibes.
He also told The Hollywood Reporter that secrets to the plot in Season 3 lie in episode seven of season 2 *runs to re-watch ep*.
The best part though, is that Vanessa Morgan has been promoted to series regular, which means we get to see way more Cheryl and Toni this season. #Choni
What genre will this season explore?
Speaking to Deadline, Roberto said: “So if it feels like Riverdale is a place where people are getting killed all the time, maybe we find out that that’s not a coincidence. Maybe in season three, that’s actually part of a bigger pattern and a bigger unspoken history of Riverdale.”
And if Riverdale’s current storyline is part of a bigger unspoken history, does this mean a Chilling Adventures of Sabrina crossover? We hope so.
The release date…
And as per, via Twitter, he let us all know that the show will be returning to our screens on Oct 9th!
