The first season of The CW’s Archie Comics-inspired drama Riverdale introduced Molly Ringwald as Archie Andrews’ (KJ Apa) mother, Mary. Her arrival brought to light some past relationship drama between the parents of Riverdale and briefly threw a wrench into Archie’s plans for the future. It has now been confirmed that Ringwald will be back to reprise her role in season two, which recently began filming.
Archie Comics’ official Twitter account shared the news of Ringwald’s return to Riverdale, posting a picture of Ringwald and stars Apa and Cole Sprouse.

So far, Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has revealed the season two title will be “A Kiss Before Dying” and also revealed the titles for 2.02 and 2.03, which are called “Nighthawks” and “The Watcher In The Woods”, respectively. Not much is known about season two of Riverdale so far, but new details will most likely be revealed at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, which is happening next month.
The only other details we have about the second season are that both Casey Cott’s Kevin Keller and Skeet Ulrich’s FP Jones have been promoted to series regulars. In addition to that, Charles Melton will be taking over the role of Reggie Mantle from Ross Butler. Pitch’s Mark Consuelos has also joined Riverdale for its second two as Hiram Lodge, the troubled husband of Hermione (Marisol Nichols) and father of Veronica (Camila Mendes).
Riverdale Season two is set to premiere on Wednesday, October 11 at 8/7c on The CW. The complete first season of Riverdale will be available on Blu-Ray and DVD on August 15.
