New Riverdale Season 2 Dark Betty Teaser Info Revealed By Lili Reinhart
Recently, the people over at Comicbook.com chatted with Lili Reinhart who plays character Betty Cooper on CW’s hit drama series “Riverdale.” During their interview, they got her to spill a couple of new spoiler teasers that her character will experience in the upcoming season 2.
It turns out that darkness will envelop her. She’s also going to be a huge focal point of a mystery that will be in place. All of it is going to totally stress her to her limits!
Here is exactly what Lili told them, “Dark Betty I feel like doesn’t exist anymore. It’s like this season just her darkness kind of envelops her a little bit. Betty is, without giving anything away, a very big focal point of the mystery in season 2 and it takes a toll on her just like it did with Cheryl in season 1. Betty gets wrapped up in something that she never asked to be wrapped up in and this kind, sweet, gentle person is pushed to her limit.”
Shortly after that, Lili told them that the first half of season 2 will feature the characters dealing with that horrible shooting that involved Archie’s father Fred. They’ll be trying to help Archie get through the trauma of it all. Betty will also experience relationship problems with Jughead. She stated, “The first half of the season, they’re dealing with Fred being shot, helping their friend Archie and Betty is dealing with her relationship problems.”
They also chatted with the show’s producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. He commented on Betty and Jughead’s upcoming troubles. He definitely confirmed that their relationship is going to get tested.
He stated, “I’m a real believer in the story itself guiding where we go. I root for them so I don’t want them to have problems but sometimes you set stories in motion and they themselves take on a life of their own. All relationships are tested. That’s the truth. The most casual to the most profound and intimate relationships. So, that is going to happen, but I trust the actors and I trust the storytelling and that will see everyone through.”
In related news, Betty will also run into some conflict with Veronica. As we previously reported, Betty will feel the need to keep a secret from her and it’s definitely going to cause tensions to flare up between them.
Also, we’re hearing that another new male character is going to arrive and he doesn’t sound pleasant at all. His name is the Sugar Man. Recently, the producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa teased his coming on his official Twitter account. He posted a picture that features a drawing of the Sugar Man running after Cheryl and Jason. He captioned it with the words, “Lock your doors, #Riverdale, the Sugar Man is coming…”
Nothing official has been confirmed about this so-called Sugar Man. But he sounds extremely interesting. We’ll do a separate post about him that will feature what we’ve learned he might be. Season 2 is currently due to premiere on Wednesday night, October 11,2017 at 7 pm central standard time on The CW. Stay tuned.
