For everyone excited to see Archie, Veronica, Betty Jughead, and some of your other favorite characters, know that Riverdale season 2 filming is underway! In a series of posts on Twitter this week, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa confirmed the news.
One of the photos below shows a subtle change in production for the second season: The presence of more fans around set. KJ Apa and Camila Mendes said a quick hello to the crew while they continue filming as their classic characters. The show’s now a hit with viewers all over the world enjoying it. Therefore, we imagine that the process of filming the show is rather different than back when nobody was altogether sure if it was going to be a hit at all. The ratings are there to back it up, and it’s even moving to a new night and time Wednesdays for The CW this fall.
As for what’s actually going to happen moving into season 2, that’s a big question. Archie and some many of the other characters will probably react more to Cheryl Blossom’s fiery decision in the finale, and Jughead’s decision to go down a dark road will probably reverberate more over time. The relationship between Archie and Veronica (or Varchie, if you will) is likely going to continue to evolve, but you do still have to wonder if we’re going to see Betty get involved here somewhat. Even though Bughead has been one of our favorite ‘ships of the past year, we’re absolutely not ruling out the chance that there is something that brings Betty back into Archie’s romantic orbit. That’s such a huge part of the comics.
It is a little bit surprising to see Riverdale season 2 filming start so early, but there’s clearly something in terms of the schedule that makes this work for the cast and crew. Production is underway here earlier than the majority of the other shows on The CW, which will not begin until after the July 4 holiday.
For now, let us know what you want to see happen for some of the Riverdale crew in season 2 in the comments!
