Season one of Riverdale saw all-round good girl Betty Cooper take a dark turn when she got revenge on Chuck Clayton after he sexually abused a number of girls at school.
Actress Lili Reinhart, who plays her, has revealed that ‘Dark Betty’ is gone for now, but the darkness does really get to her in the show’s second outing.
“Dark Betty I feel like doesn’t exist anymore,” Reinhart told ComicBook. “It’s like this season just her darkness kind of envelops her a little bit.
“Betty is, without giving anything away, a very big focal point of the mystery in season 2 and it takes a toll on her, just like it did with Cheryl in season one.
“Betty gets wrapped up in something that she never asked to be wrapped up in and this kind, sweet, gentle person is pushed to her limit.”
Season two of the Archie Comics adaptation seems to be shaping up nicely with the supernatural elements from the comics seeping in, including an appearance of The Sugar Man.
