Based on the characters from Archie Comics, Riverdale returns with its subversive take on small-town life. Determined to protect the sanctity of his town in the wake of his father's shooting, season two of Riverdale finds Archie (KJ Apa) seeking vengeance. As a civil war brews between the Northside and the Southside, loyalties will be divided. Betty (Lili Reinhart) and Jughead's (Cole Sprouse) relationship enters fragile territory when Jughead decides to live on the Southside, and Betty becomes plagued by the news of her long lost brother. Veronica (Camila Mendes) will find her life upended by her father Hiram's (Mark Consuelos) arrival given that it's their first reunion since his arrest, and Archie's rivalry with Reggie (Charles Melton) will grow. Things aren't always what you'd expect in Riverdale, and that's especially true as Archie tries to uncover the mystery of his father's attack.
