Say it ain’t so! It looks like these Riverdale Season 2 spoilers confirm some major trouble in paradise for your fav on-screen couple, Jughead and Betty — better known as Bughead. While real-life couple Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart seem to be happy as clams, as they recently announced their budding romance, the characters they portray are set to break our hearts.
The whole cast sat down with E! News to spill some deets about the upcoming season which premieres Oct. 11. And while we all shipped Betty and Jughead from the very start, we guess it wouldn’t be in keeping with the style of the show for it to be all smooth sailing.
“Jughead is going through quite a bit at the end of season one and continues to go through quite a bit throughout season two, and asks if Betty is ride or die, you know,” Cole said. “[He] asks Betty how much Lana Del Rey videos she’s been watching, and whether she’s going to hop on the back of that hog.”
In fact, the high schoolers might become star-crossed this coming season. “It’s kind of a Romeo and Juliet situation between the two of them,” Lili said. “There’s a civil war kind of going on in Riverdale, and he’s on the south side, she’s on the north side, and you gotta choose a side basically. It might cause some problems.”
Riverdale fans everywhere have been patiently waiting for the return of the hit show, which is based on the Archie comics. And since the Comic-Con panel when the cast revealed the sneak peek, anticipation has only grown.
So between worrying about the fate of Fred Andrews and the introduction of Veronica’s dad Hiram, we guess we now have to worry about the fate of our fav couple! Is it October yet?!
