Penelope Ann Miller will play Ms. Wright, the district attorney set to prosecute Archie Andrews after he is framed for murder in Riverdale‘s season 2 finale.
Miller was revealed to be joining Riverdale‘s cast for season three during the show’s San Diego Comic-Con panel. The Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award nominee is known for starring in The Birth of a Nation and classic crime film Carlito’s Way.
Ms. Wright is clearly set to be an antagonist for Riverdale‘s third season, as she is described to manipulate elements of Archie’s young life to make him out to be a violent sociopath capable of murder:
“At the end of season two, Archie Andrews was framed by Hiram Lodge for the murder of a Shadow Lake resident named Cassidy. The savvy, eloquent Ms. Wright is the prosecuting attorney in charge of handling Archie’s case. With a conviction in mind, she will weave together disparate moments of Archie’s young life to portray him as a dangerous, violent sociopath who is capable of committing a heinous crime. His freedom will hang in the balance when the series returns to The CW for its third season on October 10 (Wednesdays 8/7c).”
