Riverdale’s Parents are Getting a Flashback Episode!
Riverdale takes another dramatic twist as the parents of the young characters get a hot spotlight. It’s just a flashback though and all the younger actors will play the roles of their parents for that one episode.
At a TV Critics Association Panel, the creator of Riverdale announced this decision. He revealed that they will be adding a flashback episode in the next season and it will have its own take on The Breakfast Club. However, it will be dark and twisted and thus, The Midnight Club. The episode will be one super dark secret of Riverdale. It reveals secrets the parents have hidden ever since they were in high school. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa further added that the main cast will play their parents. In the upcoming season, which is the third one for the show, the young and hot actors playing their parents might just get a spotlight of their own.
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has also shared that they would love to do a bizarre episode. And by that he meant one where they can follow most of the parents while the kids are just on the fringes. Since Season 3 is in a place where moving forward this way is possible, the team behind Riverdale believes that this could be a blast for the show. According to the director Roberto, they have been trying to do this to the show ever since season 1. He also mentioned that he calls it the “Lili Reinhart Memorial episode” since she has been proposing this idea for years now.
Fans already know that the flashback episode will be the fourth one for this season. K.J Apa, the Archie on Riverdale will be playing his dad Luke Perry or Fred Andrews for the show. Lili Reinhart will play Alice Cooper while Camila Mendes will become Hermione. Cole Sprouse will be taking on the role for FP Jones.
Riverdale in itself is a very twisted television show to follow. And by the looks of it, the next season gets much more dramatically dark.
