Riverdale's Creator Reveals How They're Going To Introduce More Horror In Season 2
In less than a month, Riverdale returns & we're so fkn pumped.
Last year, both Cole Sprouse & creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa dropped hints about the sophomore season's genre switch and fans assumed the series would be taking a supernatural turn.
Witches and zombies might not be heading to town (yet), but Roberto has revealed they are going to introduce more horror, so you might wanna brace yourselves for that.
“One of my favorite movies is Shadow of a Doubt, which is an Alfred Hitchcock movie which has often been described as Our Town with a killer on the loose," he said.
"I was always obsessed with that idea. This season is a little bit of an homage to that. The big theme is what happens when you’re living with fear day in and day out that something terrible might happen," he continued.
"And how your life changes when you’re walking home from school and you see someone and you cross to the other side of the street. Or when you go to bed, you triple-check your front door to make sure it’s locked.”

He then suggested things weren't looking good for Betty....
“I would say by episode 4 and 5, Betty is absolutely in the heart of darkness," he revealed.
"We’re putting her through the fires like never before. I can’t say too much because there’s a couple of big twists, but Betty is absolutely at the heart of the darkest story we’re telling this season.”
ICYMI, Roberto also teased the arrival of a new Slender-Man style figure - 'The Sugar Man' - a shadowy figure who shares a conncetion to the Blossom twins.
