New ‘Riverdale’ Season 3 Shocking Details Revealed For Veronica’s Dad Hiram Lodge & More
Hey fellow “Riverdale” fans. We’ve got some more, very intense new details that you guys can expect to see in the upcoming and highly anticipated season 3! This latest spoiler teaser is in reference to Veronica Lodge’s father Hiram Lodge, and it’s straight from the showrunner himself Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
The folks over at Entertainment Weekly were recently able to chat it up with him, and they got him to give up some major intel. It turns out that as shady and crooked as Hiram Lodge was in season 2, we haven’t seen anything yet. He’s going to get even dirtier in season 3!
Roberto went on to point out that Hiram pretty much only used manipulation tactics in season 2 to get what he wanted done, but that he never really got down and dirty on his own, implying that’s what we might actually see in the new, third season.
Roberto stated to Entertainment Weekly, “Hiram Lodge can get much, much darker. We saw Hiram as a manipulative figure in season 2, but he didn’t get his hands dirty. He influenced Archie. He influenced Reggie. He capitalized on Veronica’s love for him. But he didn’t get down and dirty in the mud that much.”
After that, Roberto continued by saying, “We have not gotten the full extent of Hiram’s plans. We’re going to see a much darker, more involved Hiram Lodge than in season 2.” The last shady thing we saw Hiram do in season 2 was totally set Archie up for murder which resulted in Archie getting handcuffed and dragged off to jail!
How do you guys feel about seeing an even dirtier Hiram Lodge in season 3? Are you happy about it? Are you sad? Or do you just not care one way or the other? Let us know in the Facebook comments.
As previously reported, Roberto told the folks over at Deadline.com that season 3 will have a Sin City type of vibe to it since Hiram has pretty much taken over everything. Roberto stated, “First of all, we are keeping our group together as much as possible, even though potentially Archie is going to go to the slammer for a bit.
But also, if the idea is that Hiram Lodge has taken possession of Riverdale and then Riverdale has become something like Sin City. So, like the movie and the comic book that Frank Miller wrote that were comprised of short stories that kind of came together to tell one big story about Sin City.
So, one idea is that we might shift the focus around on different characters, some of our supporting players as well to kind of tell a tapestry of what life is like when Riverdale is on the verge of becoming Sin City. So, keep an eye out on the supporting players like Cheryl and Tony and Kevin and Josie. They’re going to carry more story than they have in Season 1 and Season 2.”
We’re also going to possibly see Jughead’s mother and sister Jellybean show up on the scene. When Entertainment Weekly asked Roberto if we would see them. He told them, “Yeah, I think so. This is a show about friendships and friends in high school, but it is a family show. It does explore family dynamics, and we brought in Hiram and that really shook up the Lodges. I’m curious to know about Jughead’s mom. I’m curious to know about Jughead’s sister. And there’s definitely a possibility that they might be coming to Riverdale.”
Roberto also commented on creepy Chic Cooper’s fate when EW asked him about it. They point blank asked Roberto, “Will we ever find out Chic’s fate?” He replied with, “Yes, Chic’s out there, right? We don’t know if he died. Betty didn’t ask Hal. If he is alive, we don’t know where he is. We don’t know when he might come back. Yeah, he’s out there. I really like that actor, Hart Denton, who played Chic. Who knows, who knows?”
In a previous report we ran, Madchen Amick who plays Alice Cooper definitely confirmed Chic’s return stating, “I’m sure you’re all aware of Denton’s creepy portrayal of the Cooper son, and I can’t wait to see what he’s gonna be up to in season three… SPOILER ALERT!” So, definitely expect to see Chic back in action at some point in season 3.
Alright guys. That’s going to wrap it up for this latest Riverdale season 3 report, but definitely stay tuned because more stuff is coming out day by day. Also, we should be getting an announcement from CW about when season is scheduled to premiere. We’ll definitely let you guys know when that announcement is made. Stay tuned.
