Most of the characters in Riverdale went through extremes in season 1, but Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch) experienced something akin to hell on earth – some of it by her own design admittedly. With the death of her brother, Jason, and the revelation that her father was his killer, Cheryl hit rock bottom. She even tried to commit suicide. If you’re hoping things will get better for Cheryl in season 2 of the The CW drama, you might be disappointed.
In TVLine’s recent edition of Matt’s Inside Line, a fan asked the reporter if Cheryl was going to get any closer to “joining the sad breakfast club” in season 2. When he delivered the question to Petsch, she shared a bit about Cheryl’s trajectory next season after proclaiming her love for the term “sad breakfast club” when describing Veronica, Betty, Archie, Jughead and co.
“I would love to see that, but I actually think she’s going to become even colder and even meaner in Season 2. After what happened in Season 1, she’s just done. She’s so shut down and broken. Veronica wants Cheryl to become a part of the gang, and Cheryl wants so badly to become a part of the gang, but she’s so egotistical and there’s so much going on in her head that she doesn’t do it.”
Petsch’s words line up with what executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa previously teased for Cheryl. And with the knowledge that Riverdale will be even darker and stranger in it’s second outing, Cheryl’s own darkness will surely contribute.
Even though Cheryl has largely brought a lot of her trouble upon herself, there are still many things she’s simply had dumped on her; things that would be difficult for anyone to handle. Even a Queen Bee like Cheryl deserves a break now and then, but it doesn’t seem she’ll be getting one in season 2.
Riverdale season 2 will premiere on Wednesday, October 11 in its new timeslot: Wednesday nights at 8/7c on The CW. The complete first season will be available on Blu-Ray and DVD starting on August 15.
10 Saturday Morning Cartoons That Could Make Successful Movies
If the Smurfs or Transformers movies have taught us anything, old Saturday morning cartoons are the new grade-A meat for the movie studios. Cartoons can be turned into animated movies, just look at the success of the Spongebob Squarepants movies, but they can also make successful live-action adaptations. Well, with Power Rangers coming out soon, an idea so silly it might as well have been a Saturday morning cartoon it’s time for studio execs to take a look at some of these hidden classics. There’s clearly a lot of money to be made adapting beloved children franchises.
I want to point out a key word to all of you guys in case you get mad at my list. I don’t necessarily know if all of these cartoons could make good movies, but I’m pretty sure they could turn a profit and be considered successful.
