So the last class of the school has come, but the concerns of the main characters are not diminished, but rather, and this is connected not only with the school, but also with personal relationships, as well as with the secrets of Riverdale.
The third season was shrouded in secrets, cults, prisons, but the continuation nevertheless will return the development of events within the walls of the school, because the main characters have to learn the last year. Archie will join the football team, Cheryl will return to the Lysitz support team, and Betty will again become a friendly neighbor and excellent student. All four friends, including Jughead, will reunite. Spectators expect a completely new relationship that will arise from Betty and Archie.
In the last episode of season 3, a new character appeared - an FBI agent and Betty and Jughead's brother, son of Alice Kupper and AF Jones, so her line will continue into season 4.

The new character will be Charles, the brother of Jughead and Betty, who will be played by Wyatt Nash (“The Defiant Challenge,” “The Bridge,” “Like a Cat and a Dog”).
In the new season of the Netflix series Riverdale, viewers will also see the characters and actors who play them already in love:
- KJ Apa as Archie Andrews (Shortland Street, Dog Life, Altar of Fate, Alien Hate, Our Last Summer);
- Lily Reinhart as Betty Cooper (Kings of Summer, Jack's Survival, Miss Stevens, Good Neighbor, Galveston);
- Camila Mendes in the role of Veronica Lodge ("New Novel", "Perfect Date");
- Cole Sprouse in the role of Jughead Jones ("Friends", "Big Dad", "Astronaut's Wife", "Chicks", "Two on the Road", "A Meter from Each Other");
- Casey Cott as Kevin Keller (Law & Order: Special Corps, Instinct);
- Madeline Petsh as Cheryl Blossom (Stepmother, Roy, Kill Graduation, Polaroid);
- Madhen Amick as Alice Cooper (Twin Peaks: Through Fire, My Personal Enemy, Beautiful to Death, White Collar, Twin Peaks);
- Marisol Nichols as Hermione Lodge (Criminal, Gates, Storm, Werewolf);
- Skeet Ulrich in the role of FP Jones ("It Can't Be Better", "Holy Watch", "Remember Everything", "Quest").
Casey Cott, who plays Kevin Keller, may leave the series as he joins the Katie Keane spin-off, which Josie McCoy has already moved to.
Unfortunately, in 2019, the actor who plays Archie's father Fred Andrews, Luke Perry, died, so this character will no longer appear in the series.
Did you know that
- Initially, Cole Sprouse auditioned for the role of Archie, but then he liked the character of Jughead, with whom, according to the actor, he has a lot in common;
- Another actress who auditioned for a different role was Madeline Petsh, who wanted to play Betty, but the casting director offered her the role of Cheryl, and the actress agreed;
- All episodes of the series are named after famous films, with the exception of "Tightening the loop", "Unholy and Divine";
- Kay Japa said that for all the scenes where he eats junk food (hamburgers, etc.) with his friends in the diner, there is a bucket next to the camera where he spits out all the food after he has bitten a piece on the camera. This is due to his strict diet, thanks to which the actor’s press is supported.
At the moment, the shooting process of the 4th season of the Riverdale series is actively being conducted with the known release date, actors and the released trailer (it is expected that it will be released in the summer of 2019). Since the heroes are waiting for the last academic year, it is not known whether there will be a 5th season, so, most likely, the 4th season will be the last.
