During this year’s San Diego Comic Con it was confirmed that the mother and sister of Riverdale character Jughead Jones, (Cole Sprouse), would be making an appearance in the show’s third season.
Throughout the show’s run, Jughead’s family has been something of a mystery. While they are occasionally alluded to and referenced they never seem to make an appearance. The characters apparently moved away from Riverdale to Toledo sometime before the show started for unknown reasons. But apparently that is about to change.
During the show’s panel it was confirmed that Jughead’s mother, Gladys, and sister, Jellybean Jones, would be making an appearance in the show’s third season. The two enigmatic characters are expected to appear midway through he season around it’s 8th or 9th episode. Details on who would be playing the two have not been released.

10 DC Comics Characters That Need To Appear On ‘Arrow’
Arrow is one of the most important shows in modern memory. It started the current age of superhero shows on the air. While Smallville was on the air for ten seasons it never truly inspired anything in its time on the air, but Arrow hit its target at the right moment and a time when audiences were craving more superhero stories. From it, The CW generated four more superhero shows, creating the now called “Arrowverse.”
The show has introduced a wide range of heroes and villains from the comics. From major players (The Flash, Ra’s al Ghul, Deathstroke) to some truly obscure characters only hardcore DC fans would know (Wild Dog, Vigilante, Damien Darhk) it is always a great treat to find out which character will make the leap from the page to Star City.
Now, Arrow is wrapping up its sixth season, and while no seventh season has officially been ordered fans can still fantasize about what is to come. Here are ten characters that should appear on the show! Click Next to get started.
