5 Things to Look Forward to in ‘Riverdale’ Season 4

Everyone’s favorite trashy teen drama is getting ready for season four and the show’s panel at San Diego Comic Con last weekend teased fans with exciting tidbits about the upcoming season, which is set to premiere October 9th on the CW.

 

1. There will be a Halloween episode.

It may come as a shock that this teen-driven thriller/ drama/ horror/ crime/ mystery montage of a television show has never celebrated Halloween on screen. Luckily, writers have confirmed a Halloween special, bound to include revealing costumes (I’m looking at you, Cheryl), exciting party scenes, and real life horror elements thrown in.

 

2. The first episode will honor Luke Perry.

Following the tragic news of Luke Perry’s passing, fans were left wondering how the show would cope with such a loss. Series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa confirmed at the panel that the first episode of season four will honor Perry and his character, Fred Andrews with a special guest star of Perry’s 90210 costar, Shannen Doherty. There is no doubt that the premiere will be a tear-jerker as fans say goodbye to the character and the actor alike.

 

3. Choni, Choni, and more Choni

Confirming the presence of Cheryl and Toni’s rocky relationships allowed many fans to breathe a sigh of relief. Aguirre-Sacasa also revealed that the show will explore Toni’s backstory further. Taking a deeper dive into the pretty poison will undoubtedly add depth to her character and her relationship with Cheryl. This is one relationship and character arc we can all be happy to see persist.

 

4. More musical episodes

Thankfully, the cast and creator also confirmed the continuation of the now infamous musical episodes. Riverdale High’s favorite director, Kevin Keller, will be back to direct yet another musical. There are no talks yet on what musical the gang will be putting on as their final senior year performance, but at least we always have KJ Apa’s dance moves to look forward to.

 

5. Jughead will be spending his senior year elsewhere.

The sad news that Jughead will be attending a prep school for his final year of high school surfaced during the show’s panel. This will definitely cause problems for his and Betty’s relationship. Between learning they share a new half-sibling and things between their parents heating up, Bughead’s relationship will be tested greatly in the new season. But, after surviving serial killers, drug dealers, gargoyles, and cult leaders- the couple can get through anything…right?

Archie Comics Get Revamped Thanks to Spotify!

It was only recently that I’ve become a Spotify user. And yes, I am late to the party, but what can you do? Listening to awesome playlists has been my thing, but now Spotify is promising more, especially for comic-lovers.

Although Riverdale has become a hit TV adaptation of the Archie Comics, the sales for the actual printed books haven’t shown as much success lately. Now, Archie Comics have a brand new plan and we’re loving the idea. According to Entertainment Weekly, the publisher is pairing up with Spotify in order to create their original comics with motion and sound tailored into the panels. There will be movement, music, and even actors giving a voice to each character.

The first few episodes will bring to life the first six issues and ongoing comics. The writer and artists will translate them and group them on a playlist called “Spotlight: Archie- The New Riverdale”. Publisher and CEO of Archie Comics, Jon Goldwater, explains his feelings towards the new project:

 

 
“Archie has always been about trying to find new ways to get comics to fans and readers… And when the opportunity to work with Spotify arose, it was a perfect match. Being able to reposition these modern classics for new readers in this unique, motion comic format makes perfect sense and we can’t wait for fans to experience these beloved Archie stories in a new way.”

 

We’ll have to wait and see how the fans react to this new way of reading the classic comics. It may only be a one time deal, but so far it sounds great. DC Comics is also doing something similar by giving readers the ability to scroll through panels on their phone. Even if it’s through technology, this might get comics back in readers’ hands.

First Look at Sabrina and Harvey Together in ‘The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’

When Keirnan Shipka was announced as Sabrina in the new Netflix Sabrina the Teenage Witch reboot, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, I thought ‘cool.’ When Ross Lynch was cast as Harvey, I thought ‘wow, he looks really like Keirnan Shipka.’ So much so, in fact, that I wrote an article on it, illustrating my point with several comparisons of the pair’s faces, including the following:

Weird right? But this is not the case anymore, it seems. In a photo tweeted by the show’s creator Robert Aguirre Sacasa, Lynch’s hair appears to have been dyed, and he’s looking a lot less like his on-screen love interest, which can only be a good thing.

 

Aguirre Sacasa, who is also the creator of hit show Riverdale, the same universe in which The Chilling Adventures will be set, tweeted the photo with the caption “Well, it’s out there. A 1st look at Harvey and Sabrina from the “Chilling Adventures of #Sabrina.” ADORBS, right?”

 

 

ADORBS, indeed.

Miranda Otto as Aunt Zelda

‘Sabrina the Teenage Witch’ Adaptation Casts LOTR’s Eowyn as Aunt Zelda

The pieces are puzzling themselves together for the newest Sabrina the Teenage Witch adaptation, and the latest piece is the casting of Aunt Zelda! Miranda Otto of Lord of the Rings fame is the newest name attached to the upcoming Netflix series based on the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Zelda, the more serious of the Spellman aunts, is the family’s disciplinarian. Described as proud and devout, she believes there is no greater honor than serving the Dark Lord as a member of the Church of Night. 

 

With Otto joining the series, the Spellman family’s casting is complete. Mad Men‘s Kiernan Shipka has been cast as Sabrina, the lead role, while Lucy Davis will play Hilda, Chance Perdomo will play warlock cousin Ambrose, Michelle Gomez will play Mrs. Wardell (aka Madam Satan), and Jaz Sinclair has been cast as Sabrina’s best friend Rosalind Walker.

Sabrina the Teenage Witch

‘Sabrina the Teenage Witch’ Reboot Has Cast Its Aunt Hilda!

The newest Sabrina the Teenage Witch adaptation is getting more skin on its bones with the recent announcement that they’ve cast Aunt Hilda. And who’s the lucky lady? None other than Lucy Davis! Davis’ filmography includes roles in the BBC’s The Office, Shawn of the Dead, and most recently, Wonder Woman, so she’s definitely got the chops for this role.

Caroline Rhea, who plaid Aunt Hilda in the iconic television show, took to Twitter to offer her congratulations to Davis.

 

 

Hilda has a “motherly nature and warm sense of humor” that “belie a wicked, ghoulish streak,” and is “as adept at brewing spite jars against her family’s enemies as she is at concocting love potions for the students at Baxter High.” 

 

Hilda was also my favorite, because she was the goofy one, loved a joke, but fiercely loyal and heartfelt. She also had the best lines of the entire show.

Davis has quite the shoes to fill, but I’m excited to see how she makes the iconic role her own. The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is expected to premiere on Netflix later this year, and as the streaming service is producing the show, you can expect it to be incredible. Seriously, props to Netflix for the content they’ve been putting out.
