Who will star in Riverdale season 4?
All of the main cast will be back in the show apart from Fred Andrews actor Perry, who passed away earlier this year.
This includes KJ Apa as Archie Andrews, Lili Reinhardt as Betty Cooper, Camila Mendes as Veronica Lodge and Cole Sprouse as Jughead Jones.
Riverdale showrunner Roberta Aguirre-Sacasa also revealed that season four will address the death of Luke Perry, who played Fred Andrews in the show.
He said: “We thought that rather than try to squeeze something in [season three], we would let the season play out and then really do it justice and honor both Luke and Fred at the beginning of season four.”
Actress Shannen Doherty appeared in one episode as the person that Fred helped when he was killed.
There are questions over whether Hal Cooper will be back after it appeared he was shot by Penelope Blossom.
Season four also saw two new characters introduced to the fray in the form of Kerr Smith as Mr Honey and Sam Witwear as Mr Chipping.
There have been questions about whether Chad Michael Murray will return as the leader of The Farm.
Others have been wondering if Edgar Evernever is really dead after it looked like he was shot dead.
The new series saw the introduction of Bret Weston Wallace played by Sean Depner, one of Jughead’s new classmates at Stonewall Prep.
Season four saw the arrival of a new character in the form of Mrs Appleyard portrayed by Emily Tennant.
What will happen in Riverdale season 4?
Apart from these hints that season four will begin by addressing the death of Perry, which Sacasa hinted would involve Molly Ringwald sticking around as Archie’s mother for a while, no plot details have been announced for the next season of Riverdale.
The previous three seasons of Riverdale have all been based around their respective mysteries: The death of Jason Blossom (played by Trevor Stines) in season one, the identity of the Black Hood in season two and of the Gargoyle King in season three.
As such, season four is also likely to be based on a new mystery as well as the continued fallout from the cult known as The Farm.
However, fans will have to tune in to Netflix this autumn to find out exactly what will happen in Riverdale season four.
Some fans think Jughead’s fate has been revealed in a clue from Brett.
Fans have hit out at the show for its controversial Cheryl Blossom storyline and taken to social media to voice their outrage.
Is there a trailer for Riverdale season 4?
A trailer has now been released for Riverdale season four and shows the others desperately trying to find Jughead.
Veronica also says that in the space of nine months, their lives will be changing completely.
There’s also more intrigue with Betty knocked out by a mysterious figure.
A further trailer was dropped at New York Comic-Con which teased further clues of what fans could expect.
