Riverdale has given fans the dynamic duo Betty Copper and Veronica Lodge (or, better know as “B and V”), the Black Hood, the always-red-lipped Cheryl Blossom and disturbing family dynamics you’ve probably spent hours trying to dictate to your friends. Season 2 has been a wild ride so far, and the CW favorite isn’t over yet. We wouldn’t blame you if you were itching to know where to catch up on all the action. Is Riverdale on Hulu? We’ve got you covered.
It didn’t take long for girl-next-door Betty to reveal her true complexity as a young woman struggling with inner demons. “It’s important for me playing this role to acknowledge the anxieties and stress within her,” actress Lili Reinhart told NME.com in February.
Reinhart’s real-life and TV boyfriend, 25-year-old Cole Sprouse, talks about playing Jughead Jones in this second season: “He was this dorky, loveable outsider from season one who’s now been dealt a horrible hand of cards, and is really, truly a victim of circumstance. Everyone can identify with that.”
Camila Mendes, aka Veronica, said that it’s important for the show to cover deeper subjects “because we have to take responsibility for our young viewers, and tell important stories.” And whether it’s date rape, drugs (i.e. Jingle Jangle), mental health or prejudice against homosexuality, Riverdale is diving into these topics head on.
