The Creator Says…. Is Archie Really Dead on Riverdale?
This article contains information about the November premiere of Riverdale season six.
Not exactly a welcome to the neighborhood.
In the November issue,
The 16th episode of Riverdale’s latest season, “Chapter Ninety-Six: Welcome to Rivervale,” premieres on a bright new day in Rivervale.
That isn’t a grammatical error.
Rivervale is a place where everything should be bright and sunny, but things aren’t always as they appear.
Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) throws a maple harvest festival, and Archie (KJ Apa) wins a bunch of competitions, eventually being crowned king of the day, and Jughead (Cole Spouse) and Tabitha (Erinn Westbrook) have moved in together, and Veronica (Camila Mendes) and Reggie (Charles Melton) are now the most remarkable couple in town.
Only then do things go awry when Cheryl declares that “a sacrifice must be made,” and she murders him.
The audience is left wondering if they’re watching a Midsommar spin-off, but don’t get too worked up just yet.
Archie is dead, but it’s not a cold as ice ending, according to Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who confirmed the news in a TV Line interview.
When asked if the character’s story is over, he clarified that the new season is actually a five-episode TV event, and that not every episode is a stand-alone chapter.
“No, because they are serialized, Archie is killed in Episode 2.”
And believe me when I say this: Rivervale’s death toll is only beginning.”
“Every year, we start very disparate storylines, and we always try to weave them all together, and this year is no exception, he said. “I’m not going to speak to alternate universes or dreams or anything like that, but I will say that this is all happening, and we will play as though this is all happening, even beyond the first five episodes,” Aguirre-Sacasa continues in the article.
“I will say that Betty and Veronica, in an upcoming episode, do have a conversation about Betty (Lili Reinhart) and Archie, and Archie and Reggie do have a conversation about Reggie and Veronica,” the creator confirms.
Those are on their way, despite the fact that they are in the middle of their lives.
We do, however, have those conversations and keep track of them.”
