After a year of unexpected twists and turns, the first season of Riverdale concluded with a number of new developments, including Jughead’s placement in the care of a foster family and his subsequent transferal to Southside High. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa discussed how Jughead’s new environment will cause difficulties in his relationship with Betty.
Aguirre-Sacasa discussed how Jughead’s association with the Southside Serpents will causes challenges for the duo, but added that Betty will not be giving up Jughead without a fight:
“It seems like we end on an ominous note. The fear Betty has is Jughead is going to be sucked into this world that has nothing to do with Betty — he might be going to a new school, living with a new family in a different part of town, he’s joined this gang. All I’ll tease is Betty is not someone who gives up easily. She’s probably the strongest of the kids. If she’s going to start losing Jughead, which may happen, she’s going to fight for him.”

As the town breathed a collective sigh of relief that Jason’s killer had been found out, another terrible crime occurred, in a space that had been considered one of the town’s safest, most innocent places. If Jason Blossom’s murder revealed the slimy underbelly beneath Riverdale’s surface, as we enter Season Two, the shooting of Fred Andrews threatens to plunge the entire town into utter darkness. Based on the characters from Archie Comics, RIVERDALE is from Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios, in association with Berlanti Productions, with executive producers Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (“Supergirl,” “Glee”), Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”), Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”) and Jon Goldwater (Archie Comics).
The second season of Riverdale will air on Wednesdays at 8:00 pm ET starting on October 11, 2017. Be sure to check back with Heroic Hollywood during the hiatus for the latest news!

10 Independent Comics Perfect For TV
I really don’t understand why so many great, independent comics are being ignored by Hollywood executives.
Marvel and DC dominated television in 2016 with the Arrowverse bringing the Legends of Tomorrow into the mix and Netflix adding both Jessica Jones and Luke Cage to their expanding list of original titles. Comic book films also did well in the box office last year, even if the critics weren’t always too happy, so it seems from an investment perspective comic book properties are still a good bet. Independent comics are full of characters and concepts that have the potential to become the next big thing. Fortunately, with Valiant’s recent announcement of an online Ninjak series and FX finally naming a show runner for their Y:The Last Man adaptation, it seems comic fans have a lot to look forward to in the years ahead.
