Riverdale Roundup: True Detective Meets D&D, Red Carpet Appearances, New Casting and More



-Showrunner RAS says things: “It’s Labor Day weekend and it’s closing arguments for Archie’s trial. His fate hangs in the balance, and in the premiere episode, the outcome of the trial will be revealed...One of my favorite things recently was the first season of True Detective, and we’re sort of telling a similar ritualistic crime that happens in Riverdale. We jokingly call it teen detectives meets True Detective, because we find Betty and Jughead investigating this really disturbing crime that seems to speak to the very twisted history of Riverdale...The murder victims in the present were playing a game called Griffins & Gargoyles, which is, of course, the Riverdale version of Dungeons & Dragons. Our kids discover that when their parents were in high school they also were playing this game, and there was a similar murder that happened in the past.”

-Lili on Bughead: "What made people fall in love with them from the start was seeing them together as this team, a crimefighting duo. You definitely see that within the first few episodes. They take this new killing spree under their belts, which is a lot for two teenagers to do.”

-Lili on playing young Alice in the flashback episode which airs Nov 7: "Young Alice is so different from the Alice that you see today. She’s not just this uptight, precocious, looks-down-upon-everyone teen; like, she was a Serpent.”

Madchen posted another picture of the parents gathered on set at what is most likely Veronica's speakeasy which will be in the basement of Pop's. Supposedly the existence of the speakeasy will mean more stories for Josie because RAS is incapable of conceiving plots for Josie outside of her musical career

And if you were wondering who the new face is, that's actor Matthew Yang King. It's not known which character he's playing though popular speculation says Reggie's dad

While on the carpet, she answered some questions about the upcoming season and confirmed that Choni does have a kissing scene in 3x05 though we might have to form some pentagrams and worship to Sabrina's goat head friend that RAS/CW doesn't cut it in favor of one of the het couples
