What We Know So Far About Riverdale Season 2

October, please come soon!

We know October 11 feels so far away, but we here at the Candy HQ are already sooo excited to see the next season of Riverdale. But what we love about this time of waiting is when we get spoiler alerts from the show's execs. Huhu, makes the waiting worth it and a little bit more bearable. 

So if you're missing Archie, Jughead, and the rest of the Riverdale crew, here are some things we should all look forward to in the second season.

  1. The second season will pick up where the first season left off.

Yup, it will pick up from that heartbreaking moment Fred was shot and its effect on our dear Archiekins. In the second season, we will be given a view of our main man's journey to the darker side (more on that on the next item!) and on finding out who shot his dad and taking revenge.

In addition, Riverdale executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (RAS) has also revealed the first three episodes' titles and they do sound darker. Season 2's pilot episode is called A Kiss Before Dying, which is then followed by Nighthawks and then The Watcher in the Woods. (via Seventeen.com)

  1. Archie's going to go darker.

Speaking with RAS, The Hollywood Reporter got a huge clue from him that Fred getting shot will have a big effect on Archie. "It's like the moment when Bruce Wayne sees his parents gunned down in Crime Alley or when Peter Parker learns that that his Uncle Ben was murdered by a burglar," he explained. "It absolutely changes Archie and sends him on his season-long journey, which—without giving too much away—starts in a really dark place: revenge."

But don't worry because he'll go to the light again because as RAS said, he is the show's hero. "That journey is for sure the spine of season two, and the question of who shot Fred and why is absolutely at the forefront of the beginning of our season," he added.

  1. Jughead will also go darker.

After putting on the Southside Serpents jacket, RAS reveals that Jughead will most probably join them and Southside High—where he fits in without effort, unlike when he goes to Riverdale High. Plus, he also finds the family he yearns for in the Serpents.

This creates tension between him and Betty (aww, he assures us that they're still together in the second season tho!) and everything and everyone, and Jughead is somehow forced to live a double life. 

  1. A "civil war" will happen.

As hinted in the first season's finale, a "civil war" is brewing between the North and the South. And because Jughead has just moved to Southside High, he has to make a choice as he's now stuck between the two communities.

  1. Veronica's father is coming.

And siiigh, Hiram (V's dad) doesn't approve of her dating Archie (who's still unclear about his feelings for Veronica) just like in the comics. As for Hiram, RAS also said that like all characters we won't have a grasp of whether he's a bad guy, a good guy, or someone in the middle once his character's introduced.

  1. There will be new faces. Of course.

There will be Charles Helton playing the role of Reggie Mantle, as Ross Butler is going to be busy with the second season of 13 Reasons Why...

And Mark Consuelos playing Hiram Lodge, who's joining Veronica and Hermione's lives.

  1. The show will continue touching on some supernatural elements.

ICYMI, there's this theory going around that Jughead is taken in the Southside by Sabrina Spellman's (as in Sabrina the Teenage Witch!) aunts, Zelda and Hilda, as his new foster family. There's some legit reason for this, of course. In the comic books, Sabrina, who lives in Greendale (a town near Riverdale), actually helps Jughead bring back Hot Dog to life which later on triggers a zombie apocalypse. Meaning, their lives are intertwined!

Although no name has been mentioned yet for Jughead's new foster family, fans are all wanting to have the execs introduce Sabrina's character in the series already. RAS, however, said that they had to make a choice to not introduce her character in the first season because "it's such a big idea to introduce the supernatural into a natural world." (via Cosmopolitan.com)

But will she come out in the second season? There's no word yet. But those visions of zombies and werewolves will continue for sure. "Or that might just be to make it more like Twin Peaks and the way they dealt with the supernatural," RAS said.

I was, but I am not. Desperately, I am trying to reach you – my hope. I am in this particular space in my own constructed world where doubts and frustrations recur. Emphasizing how scared I am being here, I never explored this area before. I was always in those places filled with benevolence, hope shining like the light the sun and the moon possess. And I didn’t have any plans to visit a ‘dark’ place, as how I described it then. But, as funny as how my world suddenly flipped, I am now here, completely lost with monsters persuading me to go insane.

How did I end up here? I can’t logically tell you the answer for that, but I guess, I know when. It started when I had to consider what college course do I want to pursue. Well, if you want to ask what ambition had occurred in my mind when I was young – which is usually the case in terms of life when you were like 7-year-old young - it was definitely being a doctor. I’d thought about wearing a medical coat with a stethoscope around my neck, ready to cure people from their illnesses. It was actually stuck in my mind for so long I almost thought that I was sure of it, yet, as a particular song yields, almost was never really enough and still, it is and will never be.

When I realized that such a perspective was slowly draining me, I tried my best to stand tough. I convinced myself that this was just temporary, that I could think of a way out of this. “There’s still plenty of time,” I once convinced myself. However, my environment demonstrated the contrary: I felt like I was completely out of time.

I was there when my classmates were happily talking about that ‘dream course’ they wish to take in their ‘dream university.’ I was there when my family was suggesting the thought of using my ‘suitable’ speaking voice for broadcasting and voice acting purposes. I was there when my teacher was convincing me that Education suited me the best. That ‘Stand tough!’ aura I used to own back then, suddenly transformed into ‘I give up!’ state, slowly destroying my being. And now, I am here in this space where doubts and frustrations are filling my former enthusiastic self. I need help.

I know, at this point, some of you may never consider me ‘fatal’ because, as you’re reading this, you may judge that I still have the ability to transform my thoughts into words that can be read, so that ‘automatically’ falls into the aspect of complete sanity. No, because I will never tell everything to you in the first place if I still have the urge to stand like I used to, relative to my belief that speaking up through writing is the best way to attract help.

When you look at the photo of mine above, you may say that I was okay. That I was successful. That I was never losing myself. Yes, I was. But, think about what happened days after that was taken and the message of this passage you started reading minutes before, do you think I am still the same girl smiling in the photo? I hope I will be or better yet, improve if the world will permit me. But, now I’m sure – I’m not the same.

LIFE ADVICE YOU NEED TO HEAR WHILE YOURE STILL YOUNG

This blog is dedicated to all teens out there struggling in determining what they really want in their life or if you simply want a glow up. And since were still facing a pandemic, I think this is also a season where everyone is re-thinking about their lives. So, I hope these advices might help you.

Tip #1. TAKE RISK - since most of you are still young, I advice you to take your biggest risk. Whether it may be taking the course you want, a skill you want to acquire or just simply taking the risk to throw away your emotional baggage from your childhood. While you're still young, you have very little to lose. You dont have that much commitments and responsibilities. Because the older you get, the more responsibilities and obligations came. So when they are still not piling up, take the risk! As for me, the biggest risk I took when I was still a teenager is to CUT OFF TOXIC FAMILY TIES.

I may sound rude here but, yeah. I decided to throw away my emotional baggage from my traumatic childhood and cut off some of my family ties and it is completely okay! You dont have to be bothered by whatever they will say. Because at your age, you are already investing on your growth as a person. If you really want to grow, THERE IS NO PERFECT TIME FOR YOU TO TAKE RISK BUT NOW. Because in taking risk you are actually giving yourself a reward of getting something amazing or beyond what you expect you can have. As they say, the bigger the risk, the bigger the reward. Keep in mind that the bigger the risk, the bigger possibility of FAILURE. But that is completely OKAY. Because just like what I said earlier, you are still young. You dont have so much to lose so, dont be afraid to take the risk and then fail. But after failing, learn from it and the more courage you have to take risk the greater the learning, reward or happiness. Ito na nga, how to take risk nga ba? And what are the risk that would actually help me to grow? #

2: VOICE LESSON - dont get me wrong, hindi ito vocalization para sa pagkanta. What I mean is, learn to listen to that VOICE INSIDE YOU. Listen to your heart, to your intuition and to your visions because it will be your GUIDE. Because I realize that as you go along your journey of your life and if you really want to be YOURSELF and be successful in achieving your goals, the only GUIDE that you should follow is your OWN VOICE.

It is okay to take and consider other people's advices but at the end of the day,you should never forget to listen to your own voice. Because that voice is what tells you what you truly want. How would you know that if it is your 'own' voice? Your own voice always comes from your HEART. The voice where YOU and GOD'S voice are one. Because I firmly believe that God knows your heart and that is where he reside. I like journaling because whenever I journal my thought every night and every morning, I feel a dual voice inside my head. Like, it contradicts what the other voice is telling. For example: If we have dreams or goals that puts us so much weight and pressure to the point that it makes you exhausted, STOP. Because it might be a dream or goal of someone else. I believe that your own dreams and goals may be frustrating most of the time, but that frustration has fueling feeling that will always tell you that 'This is the hard way to better so keep going'. Frustration in your own dreams will not make you feel exhausted because achieving a dream itself is a fulfilling feeling.

#3. TAKE ACTION - if you really want something to happen, take action. Dont just sit there and wait things to come your way. Make action or decisions that will take you to where you want to go in your life. Just like what I said in one of my novels that I am writing in wattpad, "There is no such thing as destiny or fate. Because YOU make your OWN life choices." For example, I cannot expect to be a published author if I dont write any novels right? The bottomline here is, if you are not moving forward you are actually moving backward. And it is a sad thing. Life is full of situations where you will be put in the line whether you take courage or just stay where you are. Because GROWING needs consistency in moving forward. So if you dont have to enough courage to take action, your life will always stay the same or worse you will continuously shrink down.

#4. EXPAND YOUR HORIZONS - this means stretching your comfort zone. I watched an anime entitled "Black Clover" there is a captain there where he always tell his subordinates to surpass their limits right, here right now. Going out of our comfort zones are surely scary and uncomfortable. But you have to accept the fact that you cannot stay on the coast forever. You have to change, because the only thing that is constant in this world is change right? Go out of your comfort zones because LIMITS are just in the MIND. There are disabled people who are successful in their own careers. Because the lesson here is, if you hold back there will be no growth. Because GROWTH blooms in DISCOMFORT.

Last, #5. INVEST IN YOURSELF - especially now that you are still young, you should focus on investing on yourself more. Time is your bestfriend at this point of your life. You have so much time to discover things about yourself. I never regret buying and reading books that I never knew will help me later on in dealing life's challenges. You can use that time to read books, gain wisdom, or pick a new skill, improve your talent and learn from your experiences. Keep learning outside your home or your school. Because the real battlefield is OUTSIDE. What you learn in school will only help you in your career but your wisdom and experiences will help you in life or as a person. People who doesnt embrace growth will never succeed in their life. (This is a reflection blog from my 21st birthday last week. I hope you can feature this on your page and I hope it can help others as well. )
