Fans learned of Ringwald’s involvement in season 2 via a tweet sent out by the official Archie Comics Twitter account on Monday (June 26).
“Archie’s mom is back for #Riverdale season 2! Hi Mary!” tweeted Archie Comics.
The account paired the announcement with an adorable selfie of Ringwald posing with fellow Riverdale co-stars Cole Sprouse and KJ Apa, who play best friends Jughead Jones and Archie Andrews, respectively.
Those who tuned into Riverdale’s season 1 finale have undoubtedly been wondering if Ringwald’s Mary will play a bigger role in season 2. While many were speculating that she’d return given what transpired just before the finale came to a close, it’s great to get official confirmation of her involvement.
We’ll be excited to see how Archie and his mother’s relationship progresses this coming season — especially since we didn’t get to see the two spend too much time together in the first season. Ringwald only appeared in three episodes of Riverdale last season, so we’re looking forward to hopefully learning more about Mary as season 2 progresses!
