Changes are underway for our favorite Riverdale residents when season 5 premieres and this casting news is not going to sit well with “Varchie” fans.

The CW series cast The Perfectionists Chris Mason to play Veronica Lodge’s husband, Deadline reports.

Now, you might be wondering why Veronica has a husband in high school, but the series is planning to time jump several years once it wraps up the remaining episodes from season 4 that were delayed by the COVID pandemic, which include senior prom and graduation.

This all means that in those few years, Veronica and Archie called it quits. Maybe it had something to do with his feelings for Betty Cooper?

The casting also reveals that Ronnie will be making her way to the Big Apple following high school as Mason, who will play a Chad Gekko, is described as a Wall Street banker. 

And you know how Archie is all easy-going and artistic? Well, that’s not Chad at all. Veronica’s husband is described as a “controlling and jealous alpha male.” Hmmm, sounds like Hiram Lodge, right?

“Chad is threatened by Veronica’s life in Riverdale, especially her friendship with Archie,” the official description notes.

With Chad and Veronica’s relationship already on the outs before it even had a chance to thrive, does that mean there’s a chance Veronica and Archie reconcile eventually? 

While it’s unclear what the future holds, we also know that Vanessa Morgan’s real-life pregnancy is being written into the show. Is it a Choni baby? Or has Riverdale’s other favorite couple also broken up?

Mason is set to appear in the fourth episode of the series, which returns on Wednesday, January 20, and while we’re excited to see how senior year pans out and to finally solve the mystery of those VHS tapes, we also can’t wait to see what post-college life looks for everyone!

WATCH: 'YOU' Season 3 Trailer Proves Joe and Love Are More Dangerous Than Ever

Can Joe and Love be the “nice, normal neighbors” in a “soulless suburb”?

You can probably answer that question without watching the new trailer for YOU season 3, but in case you can’t, the answer is absolutely not. 

The murderous couple, now parents to a baby boy, are back to their old ways.

As Joe develops a new female obsession, Love gets jealous, and couple’s therapy… well, that doesn’t seem to work all that well for them. 

As the killing commences — and their impulses take over — it seems as though the cops are hot on their trail. 

Check out the trailer below! It’s all worth it solely for that final scene of Love and Joe burying a body of one of their victims as their adorable bundle of joy sits safely in his carseat and coos on. 

 

The new season of YOU drops on Netflix on Friday, October 15.

This Is the One Celebrity Jennifer Aniston & Reese Witherspoon Want to Interview on ‘The Morning Show’

This Is the One Celebrity Jennifer Aniston & Reese Witherspoon Want to Interview on 'The Morning Show'

Filming The Morning Show is a lot harder than it looks.

Let’s just say, neither AppleTV+ stars Reese Witherspoon or Jennifer Anistonwould want to be news anchors IRL! And, there was plenty of pressure to navigate season two plot lines.

Read the full post HERE!

As Witherspoon exclusively explained during E! News’ Daily Popon Sept. 15, she does not envy “having to tell the good news and the bad news at the same time,” onscreen. “It’s just a lot,” Witherspoon summed up.

Aniston added, “The hours that you have to live, the morning, the information you constantly have to take into your brain on a daily basis…We get to shut off the news and say, ‘I need a break for the next couple of days.'” 

The two co-stars portray rival anchors on a fictional news show in the second season of the critically-acclaimed series, returning Friday, Sept. 17. And, fans can expect season two of The Morning Show to be just as riveting as the award-winning first season.

“We were worried about that because season one was such sort of a perfect little art installation in and of itself,” Aniston revealed. “That was not an easy task to sort of drum up, where do we go from here?” 

Witherspoon teased, “We worked really hard and I think we did it. There’s good stuff.”

So, what would be their dream morning news segment to film? According to Aniston, a “meta” interview with Julia Roberts would be fun to shoot.

Meanwhile, Witherspoon is ready to hit the bar behind the news desk. “I think we do a scene where we do it when we’ve had four glasses of wine and then interview celebrities,” she quipped.

Aniston adorably agreed: “I’m so in. Sort of like a Hoda [Kotb] and Kathy Lee [Gifford]? Yeah, I’m into it.”

Watch the adorable interview above to hear why co-star Billy Crudup thinks producers Witherspoon and Aniston are “formidable” inspirations!

The Morning Show season two premieres Friday, Sept. 17 on AppleTV+.

Has ‘The Bachelor’ Season 26 Found Its Leading Man Already?

Has 'The Bachelor' Season 26 Found Its Leading Man Already?

ABC may have found its leading man for the upcoming season of The Bachelor

Clayton Echard has been announced as the lead for season 26, according to Variety

However, if you’re not familiar with the name, you aren’t the only one. 

The outlet reports that Bachelor Nation hasn’t met him yet because he’s part of Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette, which premieres on October 19.

Clearly, that means Echard did not find love with Young, but the franchise saw something in him that compelled them to cast him in the role before audiences were even able to weigh in. 

The outlet notes producers fell in love with the 28-year-old from Missouri and tapped him for the upcoming season. 

No official confirmation has been made by ABC, and it likely won’t be until later this year after Young’s season is underway. 

However, Variety is reporting the news based on confirmation from multiple sources. 

While there’s no premiere date for the upcoming season, The Bachelor typically premieres in January.
