It looks like Archie and Reggie will continue to be at odds in season 2 of Riverdale!
Last week, Riverdale creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa shared a photo of everyone’s favorite frenemies Reggie and Archie (KJ Apa) on the football field. With Ross Butler moving on from Riverdale, actor Charles Melton is all set to take over the role of Reggie Mantle come season 2, and the photo gives fans a glimpse at the actor in character.
“#Riverdale Strong! Bulldogs @kj_apa and @_MELTON_ hitting the field! Fremenies Archie and Reggie are BACK!” Aguirre-Sacasa wrote alongside the picture of the two actors in their football gear.
As Riverdale fans know, Reggie and Archie don’t exactly get along, and despite the fact that Melton is new to the cast, it looks like his character will be picking up right where he left off.
The picture also shows that come season 2, Archie is still on the football team, despite his going back-and-forth about quitting the team last season. This is good news because it means more game scenes, and therefore more Reggie and Archie.
Here’s hoping we get more pictures of Reggie and Archie’s friendship/rivalry really soon.
Riverdale returns for its second season on October 11, 2017 on The CW.
