If you happen to watch the utter madness that has been Riverdale, you already know season six led to a spot the place… properly, everybody on the present appeared each completely happy and protected. That’s due to Cheryl Blossom’s sorcery and a meteor a darkish wizard conjured to hit Riverdale, which—as one would anticipate—despatched everybody into a brand new universe the place they’re harmless teenagers in an idealized Nineteen Fifties. However as this seventh-season trailer reveals, even ‘50s Riverdale can’t keep harmless for lengthy.
Yet another factor to recollect: Jughead is the one one who remembers Archie, Betty, Veronica, and their friends are from the long run, a frustration that led to the totally excellent picture above. However with out additional ado:
See? Certain, it appears all of the useless characters have been resurrected, all relationships have been reset, and everybody’s (aside from poor Kevin Keller) having fun with their lives. (My favourite half is how everybody’s dressed as their basic Archie comedian counterparts, forcing poor Cole Sprouse to put on Jughead’s iconic and hopelessly anachronistic whoopee cap.) However then somebody’s going to hack aside Archie, Ethel’s lined in blood, Betty’s frothing on the mouth, and yep, Cheryl’s nonetheless some type of sorceress.
Right here’s the wild factor: Regardless that this trailer options these things, it actually appears comparatively tame in comparison with earlier seasons. In spite of everything, the present’s greater than dabbled with serial killers and magic earlier than, nevertheless it’s additionally had a number of cults, an look by the literal satan, aliens, bear assaults, nun mass suicide, and extra.
However I’m in no way apprehensive that the present goes to hit the brakes on the madness now. We’ll simply have to attend and see when Riverdale’s seventh and ultimate season premieres on the CW March 29.
