WonderCon premiered the first footage of Molly Ringwald as Archie’s mom on Riverdale. The highlight reel went through all the episodes so far, marking the highs, lows, twists, and turns that our characters have faced. It also included some hints at what’s to come next for Riverdale, namely Archie’s mom.
Mary Andrews won’t be in Riverdale for just one episode. Apparently she’s going to kick off a multi-episode arc starting April 13th during ‘Chapter Ten: The Lost Weekend’. She’s there just in time to finalize her divorce with Fred and help out in Fred’s time of need. And like any kid dealing with a divorce, Archie feels conflicted about it and hides how he feels.
Mary left two years ago, leaving Archie and Fred behind, to follow her dreams. We’re looking forward to Mary reconnecting with her son, her friends, and revealing a little more about what tore this family apart.
Check out the highlight reel below:
