Entertainment Weekly has revealed the first look at Mark Consuelos as Hiram Lodge in the second season of Riverdale.
The often-talked about but never seen Hiram Lodge will finally appear in the second season of the CW series and the new image offers viewers their first look at the formerly incarcerated businessman, who appears along with his wife Hermione, played by Marisol Nichols. Mark Consuelos also discussed Hiram’s love for both his family and power:
“He loves loves loves his family and he’s fiercely protective over all of that and anything that has anything to do or comes into contact with his family. Also, he probably loves power a little bit too. He’s enamored with that.”
With Archie and Veronica dating, Consuelos hinted that Hiram may have sinister intentions towards his daughter’s boyfriend:
“Is he manipulating him or is mentoring him? Is he mentoring him or is seeing what he’s made of? You really really don’t know, and I think that’s the fun part.”

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 on The CW starting on October 11, 2017.

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.
