The CW’s Archie Comics live-action series Riverdale officially started production in Vancouver, Canada as of last week. While we still don’t have a lot of details on Season 2, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (showrunner and executive producer) has been sharing titles for the first couple of episodes for the new season to give fans something to chew on during the hiatus.
The showrunner revealed recently on his Twitter page the official title for episode 4 which is sounding like it is going to be a dark episode in Season 2. Based on its title, it appears that we might be visiting the Southside once again.

As mentioned above, not a lot of details have been shared about Season 2 so far, except for a few updates for certain cast members. Casey Cott’s Kevin Keller and Skeet Ulrich’s FP Jones have both been promoted to series regulars, while Charles Melton will be replacing Ross Butler as Reggie Mantle.
Mark Consuelos was cast a few months ago as Hiram Lodge, husband of Hermione (Marisol Nichols) and father of Veronica (Camila Mendes) for Season 2. The cast and creatives of Riverdale are officially attending San Diego Comic-Con next month which means we will definitely have some new juicy details about Season 2.
Riverdale Season 2 will begin on Wednesday, October 11 at 8/7c on The CW.
