Netflix releases first key art for ‘Riverdale’ season 3 which is set to premiere October 11 on Netflix.
With tensions between the North and Southside at an all-time high—stoked by Hiram Lodge (Mark Consuelos) with the help of Reggie Mantle (Charles Melton), and intensified with the Black Hood’s unexpected re-emergence—a civil war seemed imminent. And, indeed, after a brief respite during which everyone came together to put on CARRIE the Musical, directed by Kevin Keller (Casey Cott), Season 2 built to a riot that brought out the worst (and best) of Riverdale and its citizens, and culminated in the shocking arrest of one of our main characters.
In Season 3, it’s the start of junior year and the gang is forced to think about something new—their future. But with Hiram now in control of the Southside, Archie (KJ Apa) on trial for murder, and complicated romantic relationships forming, fans can expect a gripping start to the new season. Based on the Archie Comics characters, RIVERDALE stars KJ Apa (The Cul de Sac), Lili Reinhart (Surviving Jack), Camila Mendes, Cole Sprouse (The Suite Life of Zack and Cody), Marisol Nichols (24), Madelaine Petsch (The Curse of Sleeping Beauty), Ashleigh Murray (Appearances: Younger, The Following), Casey Cott (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit), Mark Consuelos (Queen of the South, Pitch), Skeet Ulrich (Law & Order: LA, Jericho), with Mädchen Amick (Twin Peaks) and Luke Perry (Beverly Hills, 90210). Executive producers Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Supergirl, Glee), Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow), Sarah Schechter (Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow), and Jon Goldwater (Archie Comics).
