Celebrity Gossip: Riverdale, Thomas Ravenel, Artie Lange and More!
JUGHEAD MIA: In the new trailer for season 4 of Riverdale, a search party is on for Jughead (Cole Sprouse), Betty's (Lili Reinhart) getting bonked in the head, Veronica's (Camila Mendes) facing some sort of scandal, and people are playing football. Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa told E! that season 4 will pick up around the Fourth of July. "I think some of the fun of season four and flashing to that is understanding and figuring out how we get to that point in the story," he told us. "So it's not something that is immediately going to happen, but we're goin to start sort of seeing threads pulled in that direction. We're going to see what leads up to it and then we're going to see the fallout to that scene, and that's sort of the general shape of season four." Riverdale returns Wednesday, October 9 on The CW.
