In less than a week, things start to get devilishly bizarre when The CW’s Riverdale kicks off a five-part Season 6 event so twistedly different than what viewers have seen before that our gang is going to need a major assist from Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’s own Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) to (hopefully) make things right. From what we’ve been told so far, things are exactly as they should be… in Rivervale. Veronica (Camila Mendes) and Reggie (Charles Melton) are the town’s power couple, while Jughead (Cole Sprouse) and Tabitha (Erinn Westbrook) take the next step by moving in together, and… you know what, based on the images you’re about to see below? There’s something just not right about how things are kicking off, with the season’s tagline, “Beyond the town you know lies a place you’ll fear” having us think alternate or Hell dimension (or a topless “Twilight Zone” based on what follows). Now here’s a look at the official (but unfortunately, Sabrina-less) preview images & overview for “Chapter Ninety-Six: Welcome to Rivervale,” followed by a look back at the first official trailer for The CW’s Riverdale Season 6 (premiering November 16th):
Riverdale Season 6 Episode 1 “Chapter Ninety-Six: Welcome to Rivervale”: WELCOME TO RIVERVALE – Following the explosion that ended Season Five, a new day dawns in the town of Rivervale, where everything is as it should be. Veronica (Camila Mendes) and Reggie (Charles Melton) are now the town’s power couple, while Jughead (Cole Sprouse) and Tabitha (Erinn Westbrook) move in together. But with Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) demanding a return to the “old ways,” this serenity will surely not last. And how could Archie (KJ Apa) and Betty (Lili Reinhart) possibly have survived? Vanessa Morgan, Casey Cott, Drew Ray Tanner, and Madchen Amick also star. The episode was written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and directed by Gabriel Correa.
