Everything You Need to Know About Riverdale and SDCC

first_img A Tale of Two Wonder WomenSDCC Announcement: IDW Games Brings 90s Nick to Life Riverdale will have a panel at San Diego Comic Con this Saturday, July 22nd from 11:00 am to 11:45 am over at Ballroom 20. We at Geek.com want you to be all caught up on the latest Riverdale news ahead of this panel that’s sure to be full of surprises!First and most importantly, Riverdale is coming back for a second season. The catch? It’s moving from Thursdays at 9:00 pm to Wednesdays at 8:00 pm so if you tune in at the season one time don’t be alarmed if you’re confronted with a bunch of capes having overly emotional morality debates.See you at comicon. #WBSDCC @TVGuideMagazine @warnerbrostv pic.twitter.com/BNdaMJrCD9— KJ Apa (@kj_apa) July 12, 2017The first episode of season two will be airing on October 11th; just days after New York Comic Con. That’s good news for all you Twin Peaks fans that will be itching for some more small town weirdness after Twin Peaks: The Return wraps up. These kids may have solved a mystery a full season faster than Agent Cooper, but they’ll never love coffee or cherry pie quite as much as he does.Although Riverdale is coming back, that doesn’t mean the original gang will all be here. Actor Ross Butler will not be returning as Reggie Mantle in October. The actor Charles Melton who’s made appearances on shows including Glee and American Horror Story will be continuing Reggie’s legacy. Us geeks have survived recasting from first to second seasons of shows we’ve loved in the past, so I’m approaching this with optimism and wish Charles Melton the best.#Riverdale Season Two… Not yet, but coming VERY soon! pic.twitter.com/vIgk0ZMWPU— RobertoAguirreSacasa (@WriterRAS) June 17, 2017In a win for LGBT fans, Kevin Keller (portrayed by actor Casey Cott) will be made into a regular on Riverdale instead of a recurring character. While not the only LGBT character we’ve seen pop up in the show, Kevin Keller’s legacy in the comics and having him as a regular is great move that we can all celebrate.Now that you’re all caught up on Riverdale news you’re ready for the San Diego Comic Con panel this Saturday. Go and see KJ Apa, Lili Reinhardt, the aforementioned Casey Cott, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Sarah Schechter, and many more as they roll out new details, answer your questions, and give a special presentation. Every Riverdale fan is going to want to keep their eyes on this one. Check back with Geek.com to get all the updates!View as: One Page Slides1/51.
