Riverdale – Fast Times at Riverdale High (4×02)

Riverdale/ The CW

Published

Riverdale is back in its groove in the second installment of season 4.

The series is really embracing the high school vibe with everyone gearing up to go back to school for their senior year.

But for the viewers who have experienced the rollercoaster of G&G and The Farm, it all feels a little juvenile and boring.

The biggest foe in town right now is a man named Mr. Honey who is anything but sweet.

He’s the principal replacing Weatherbee and making it a mission to make Riverdale High a safe place to be.

Except that safe doesn’t exist in this town.

Mr. Honey’s biggest issue right now is with Cheryl Blossom, and when he calls the cops to file a noise complaint against her party, she realizes it’s going to be war.

The only way Mr. Honey can be redeemed is if he’s somehow tied into the mystery of this town.

Is he part of an urban legend? Is he working for The Farm? I’ve learned many moons ago not to trust anyone in Riverdale.

As Veronica dealt with the media fallout of her parent’s incarceration, she realized her Lodge reputation probably isn’t ideal for college applications and decided to change her name to Veronica Gomez.

No telling if the name change is going to affect her person, but if it means she won’t be performing pieces like “All That Jazz” anymore, we don’t want it.

Archie came to the defense of Reggie, who was still getting pushed around by his abusive father.

Reggie didn’t take gently to Archie defending him in front of his dad considering his father frowns upon weakness, but he definitely got his dad’s attention when he smashed up his expensive car.

Betty continued to work with her half-brother Charles, whom I don’t fully trust, to infiltrate The Farm somehow.

Their best bet to get in and check on their mother, who hasn’t responded in days, is Kevin, which should tell you everything you need to know about the operation their running.

Kevin came to apologize to Betty and call a truce, but she wasn’t over the fact that he tried to drag her by her ankles to a lobotomy.

Sorry, you don’t just bounce back from that Kev.

Betty and Charles didn’t fully trust him so they tested him and he failed with flying colors.

But eventually, Betty knew she had to tell him the truth if she wanted him to help, so she told him about his mother being undercover at the Farm.

When he told Fangs about the fake witness, he was able to see where Edgar and his minions are hiding out.

Let’s get mama Alice out of there.

Jughead’s storyline was probably the most interesting because he was recruited to a prestigious (and privileged) school titled Stonewall.

The teacher, Mr. Chipping, came to recruit him personally and despite initial hesitation, Jughead was loving that the school and students dedicated themselves to learning.

If I’m honest, though, the school looks like the kind of place where weird things happen and things go wrong.

When FP said his father went missing while attending the school, it was obvious that Jug’s time at Stonewall wouldn’t be spent discussing Moby Dick.

What are they up to in that school?

Betty’s support meant the world, even if we’re opposed to Jughead transferring. (We don’t mind his uniform one bit, however.)

We can’t have him looped out of the core four.

And lastly, Cheryl seems like she has it all together, but it’s growing increasingly alarming that she’s chatting up her corpse of a brother like it’s no big deal.

Cheryl hasn’t told Toni about it nor does she want anyone to know so at least we know that below the surface she knows it’s wrong.

What did you think of the second episode of Riverdale Season 4?

Are you intrigued yet or are they off to a slow start?

What do you think happens to Jughead?

Riverdale Back in Production as Creator Teases Prom Photo

Did someone say prom?

Not even the coronavirus pandemic could prevent these teens from the right of passage that is the senior dance on Riverdale

The CW teen drama’s showrunner Robert Aguirre-Sacasa shared a photo on Instagram that gave fans a glimpse into season 5’s prom episode.

The photo featured the beloved couple “Choni” aka Madelaine Petsch’s Cheryl Blossom and Vanessa Morgan’s Toni Topaz.

“Rest assured, ALL the queens will [be] reigning SUPREMELY next season,” he captioned the post seemingly alluding the Morgan’s outspoken criticism of the show for its lack of diversity and proper storylines for diverse characters. At the time, Aguirre-Sacasa promised to do better.

The prom episode was initially supposed to be part of the show’s fourth season, but it was cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic, which forced the show to suspend production three episodes shy of its promised count.

Therefore, the upcoming season of Riverdale will include all those milestone high school moments before doing a significant time jump that will likely find our favorites from the murderous town in college.

While the photo serves as confirmation that the series is back in production (we couldn’t be more excited), it was taken during the remaining few days on set for season 4 as since filming hasn’t picked back up again.

Of course, this also means that the series is back on track to return during the midseason in January 2021. 

All good things!

Riverdale's Vanessa Morgan and Michael Kopech Expecting First Child

Updated: July 27

Shortly after Vanessa Morgan announced she was expecting her first child, a baby boy, her husband of several months, Michael Kopech, filed for divorce. 

Citing court docs, the Chicago Tribune reports revealed that the MLB player filed back in June. It was sealed on Monday.

No hearing has been scheduled.

Reps for Kopech and Morgan did not offer up comments. Neither have commented on the divorce or pregnancy announcement. 

Fans grew concerned when Morgan posted the baby announcement without any mention of Kopech. He was not in any of the videos or photos.

The couple wed in January after a year-long engagement and one year of dating. 

It’s unclear what led to the split. 

 

 

Original post July 25:

Congrats are in order for Riverdale’s Vanessa Morgan.

If you can’t handle the suspense — she’s having a baby boy!

While she admitted that she would like to keep this part of her life private, she said she wanted fans to hear it from her before they found out by eventually seeing her growing bump.

“I do want to keep this chapter of my life private but did want to be the first to share the news. I am overjoyed to be welcoming my baby boy into the world this January,” she wrote. “It’s almost like everything I thought mattered in this life has completely changed.. We’re here for such a greater purpose and life is so precious.”

She continued to gush about the exciting milestone in her life: “I can’t believe how much growth & strength you’ve already given me as your mom,” the actor added. “It’s like God knew I needed you, my angel. The universe works in mysterious ways but always times everything the way it was meant to be. Lil one you were made with so much love & already exude a light so strong it warms my belly. Thank you God for this blessing I’m just so happy & can’t wait to dedicate every day to being the best mommy I can be.”

‘Katy Keene’ Cancelled at The CW After One Season – ‘Riverdale’ Spinoff Looking for New Home

Published

After weeks of waiting, The CW has decided against renewing Katy Keene after just one season. 

The network announced that the Lucy Hale-led Riverdale spinoff will not be picked up for season 2. 

Katy Keene was the only series awaiting a decision after the network’s bulk renewal back in January, which saw all of its scripted shows get renewed including freshman dramas Batwoman and Nancy Drew. All shows are scheduled to return in January due to the coronavirus production delays. 

QUIZ: Which ‘Katy Keene’ Character Are You?

Show creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa took to Instagram to share the news with fans alongside a photo of the cast, writing, “From the first #katykeene table read. It seems like a dream. So proud of this show and the beautiful souls who came together to make it.💔.”

Hale commented writing: “I am …devastated. But love you all so much.”

https://www.instagram.com/p/CCKRRoED_MA/

Julia Chan (Pepper Smith) chimed in expressing her gratitude: “Love you, Roberto and Michael and my beloved @cw_katykeene family. Eternally grateful. ♥️”

Hale also addressed the fans directly on Instagram Live. “Sad to deliver this news ! But I love the show. I love what it stands for. And mostly I love YOU. To the cast, crew and all involved. I adore you,” she captioned the clip. 

Despite all the fan-love, the series was not a rating’s hit garnering a 0.2 rating in the demo with delayed viewing accounted for, per Nielsen. 
 
However, Deadline reports that the studio behind the series, Warner Bros. Television, plans to shop it around to potentially find the series a new home. There’s word that if the series does snag a second season, it will likely be on HBO Max as the streaming platform recently began airing the first season. 
 
We’re bummed about the news here at CraveYouTV as we truly thought Katy Keene was a fun, refreshing sidekick to Riverdale, but for now, we’re hopeful and optimistic that all is not lost. Be sure to check back as we’ll continue to keep you posted!
