Riverdale is coming back with all-new episodes on January 17, and a new trailer has been released promoting the return of the popular series.
The The CW series will return with an episode titled The Blackboard Jungle. Listings for the series revealed the following about the episode:
“Tensions mount when the sudden shut down of Southside High forces Jughead (Cole Sprouse) and his fellow serpents to transfer to Riverdale High. Veronica (Camila Mendes) ensures Hiram (Mark Consuelos) and Hermoine (Marisol Nichols) that she’s still on board with their plans for SoDale. Archie (KJ Apa) is conflicted when he is asked to gather some information on Hiram’s suspicious business dealings. Betty (Lili Reinhart) sets out on a quest to find her long-lost brother, Chic (guest star Hart Denton). Madelaine Petsch, Madchen Amick, Luke Perry, Ashleigh Murray, Skeet Ulrich and Casey Cott also star. Tim Hunter directed the episode written by Britta Lundin & Brian E. Paterson (#210).”
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the creator of the series, also said the following about the second half of season two, per Cinema Blend:
“The second half of season 2 gets back to a little bit of Riverdale basics, which is focused on stories at the school, kind of getting back in deep on the relationships and the friendships.”
