Filming for Riverdale season 2 is currently underway and with every new picture from set, we can’t help but get excited about what’s to come when The CW series returns this fall.
On Tuesday (July 12), Mädchen Amick, who plays Alice Cooper, posted a series of photos from the set of Riverdale with both an unlikely, and yet not totally surprising character: Lili Reinhart, who plays her daughter, Betty Cooper.
“Hangin with B. Cannot tell you how happy I am to be back filming with this ridiculously talented powerhouse beautiful soul! I luvs you @lilireinhart 😍💋 #bts #riverdale #season2,” Amick captioned the group of pictures.
While seeing the mother-daughter duo on set was bound to happen at some point, it’s the fact that they are filming together so soon — or at least it appear to be early in season 2 — that makes us so happy.
At the end of season 1, Alice and Betty went from being enemies to allies. This new set selfie gives us hope that come season 2, the Cooper ladies will move forward as as a team, which could be really helpful since according to all of creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa’s title teases, Riverdale is getting darker and darker.
Oh, and if that’s not enough to think about, Amick’s selfie is in Pop’s Chock’lit Shoppe, which is where a MAJOR cliffhanger involving Fred (Luke Perry) and Archie Andrews (KJ Apa) took place last season.
Plus, the cute selfie is followed by images of Pop’s from different angles, including its neon signs, half-eaten pies, and balloons. What could be happening in Pop’s come season 2? Will it remain a happy place for everyone to hangout after the terrifying cliffhanger, or will it become a place that only the Serpents frequent?
Either way, we’re happy that the Cooper ladies are back, and we can’t wait to see what they’re doing together this fall.
Riverdale returns to The CW on October 11, 2017.
