Could we be seeing more of Dark Betty in the future?
'Riverdale' may currently be on a break, but that hasn't stopped fans from wondering exactly what will happen when the show makes its return at the beginning of next year. We left things off with the apparent reveal of the Black Hood - though we're not entirely convinced that the unmasking was of the true criminal behind the slayings and attempted murders in the town - and saw Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) refuse to burn her own black hood, gifted to her by the criminal at the end of the first part of season 2.
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa serves as showrunner on 'Riverdale'
Betty has always been a mysterious character, showcasing her dark side with her Dark Betty persona in the show's first season, with consistent teases that she could return to this alter-ego at some point in the near future. Exactly what that means for her upcoming story arcs remains to be seen, but Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa who works on the series has been giving a little bit of a hint as to what we should expect.
KJ Apa and Madelaine Petsch chat about the series' darkest storyline to-date.
Following the huge success of 'Riverdale's first season, it didn't take much convincing for American television network The CW to pick up the show for another run, this time extending its episode count and allowing the storylines included to be darker than ever before. Closing with a cliffhanger that saw Archie Andrews' (KJ Apa) father shot by a mystery assailant in a black hood, it became clear that the drama in Riverdale wasn't going to slow down anytime soon.
Madelaine Petsch says she didn't guess who was behind the Black Hood
Over the past few weeks, viewers have seen the Black Hood working alongside Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart), forcing her to break friendships and even give the name of somebody that should be murdered. Now though, she's promised to do her best in taking the Black Hood down and unmasking them as soon as possible.

The show will be enjoying some major shifts in tone upon its return.
When 'Riverdale' made its debut on The CW earlier this year, not many could have predicted how big a success it would become. Telling the story that surrounded the mysterious death of teenager Jason Blossom, and delving deeply into the backgrounds of all those who were at one point suspected of taking his life, the show flipped the Archie Comics book series which it was based on, completely on their head. It was a different approach than the one the majority had expected, but a welcome one.
There won't be many smiles for Archie and Betty in 'Riverdale' season 2
With a talented cast of young actors fronting the show - including KJ Apa as Archie Andrews, Cole Sprouse as Jughead Jones, Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper and Camila Mendes as Veronica Lodge - viewers were drawn right into the drama and instantly felt a part of the 'Riverdale' story. There were those who even compared the direction it was going in to that of the original 'Twin Peaks' series.

At the beginning of this year, The CW brought their new series 'Riverdale' - based on the long-running Archie Comics series - to the small screen. Not many people knew what to expect outside of the teasers that had been revealed, but when the show kicked into high gear after just a couple of episodes, it was clear that it would become a huge success.

The show's first season wasn't always going to close out the way it did.
'Riverdale' is without a doubt one of this year's most successful new small screen properties. Enjoying a much talked about first season, it's already gone into production with a second on the way later this year, returning much sooner than anybody had expected.
KJ Apa led the CW show as Archie
Following characters based on those that were first introduced in the Archie Comics universe, the series is a lot darker than anybody would have imagined, with one of the students at Riverdale High murdered, execution style with a shot to the head.

The actor isn't afraid to give his performance his all.
When it was announced a series was coming to The CW based on the characters from the long-running Archie Comics books, not many people could have guessed the direction in which the show has now taken. Opening up a murder mystery tale that has been compared to the likes of 'Twin Peaks' in its first season, it's fair to say that the TV show has branched far out from its source material, bringing a darker look at the town of Riverdale to fans.
