Adding: “The prep school is serving for the setting of the mystery.”
Reflecting on the character’s trajectory in the fourth outing, the star said: “I have a feeling season four Jughead is very much season one Jughead, which is the perspective character, the writer who’s feeling everything from the outside and not so much the gang leader.”
Riverdale season four has now crossed the halfway mark with a total of 22 episodes in the drama.
While it’s not clear why season four is taking a break for a week, it could be linked to the Presidents’ Day bank holiday on February 17.
This means there could be special programming on this week which could affect Riverdale’s broadcast.
Despite the brief hiatus, Riverdale isn’t going anywhere. The show has also been given the greenly light for a fifth outing which is anticipated to be airing in October.
Riverdale airs on The CW in the US on Wednesdays at 8/7c and on Netflix UK on Thursdays
