Snagging a ticket to Comic Con is no walk in the park. If you’re one of the masses of fans who couldn’t find a way to squeeze into Hall H this year, check back here all week for our coverage of all of the major news, panels, and trailers from each day of SDCC! Here’s a round-up of Sunday’s greatest hits:
‘Riverdale’ Announces a Tribute to Luke Perry
The Riverdale panel this Sunday gave audiences several insights into what they can expect in season 4. The premiere will be a tribute to Luke Perry, and the season will see Archie deal with the death of his father and an increased presence for Molly Ringwald as Archie’s mother. The new season will also feature the series’ first Halloween-themed episode, a “Battle of the Bands” episode, a storyline wherein Jughead attends prep school, Veronica and Cheryl as business partners, and a kiss between Alice and F.P. Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa also teased a potential crossover between Riverdale and upcoming CW series Katy Keene.
‘Supernatural’ Says Goodbye to Fans Ahead of Their Fifteenth and Final Season
Sunday was an emotional day for the SPN Family. Seeing as the next season of Supernatural will be its last, Sunday’s Comic Con panel served as a bittersweet farewell. After a reel of some of the show’s best moments, the panel — which included stars Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, and Alexander Calvert — teased the directions that the series will take in its fifteenth season. The season will deal with God’s shocking actions at the end of season 14 and focus on a common theme for the series, free will. The stars then did a giveaway for the iconic Impala from the series, and said their tearful goodbyes before receiving a standing ovation. It seems that for both the show’s stars and their ardent fanbase, season 15 will mark the end of an era.
