Riverdale season four is set to be an explosive watch if the latest trailer is anything to go by as the events to rock the town have finally been revealed.
The fourth outing will return to The CW and Netflix in October and it seems Archie Andrews (played by KJ Apa), Jughead Jones (Cole Spouse), Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) and Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes) are to be caught up in yet another dangerous mystery.
The show usually sees Jughead and Betty team up to solve which ever problem is taking over the troubled town.
However, this time it seems Jughead is at the centre of the mystery as the opening of the new spoiler reveals him to be missing.
The opening clip sees the usual Riverdale gang, alongside his dad Sheriff FP Jones (Skeet Ulrich) searching the woods calling out for Jughead.
The trailer teases “dark secrets” and “scandal” as the trailer cuts between the gang going into senior year and the town’s hunt for the head Serpant.
However, it seems Jughead is in a difficult situation as much to the horror of fans, he appears to be trapped underground.
One of the final clips sees Jughead hammering on the wood to be let out as he uses his lighter as a torch.
Naturally, fans were furious that their favourite Serpant could be killed in the next outing as many suspected he had been buried alive.
One fan tweeted: “They buried him alive !! #whereisJughead #riverdale”

Whilst another raged: “I swear, if Jughead dies, this show is dead to me! What happened to my Juggie”
“This show stopped making sense at season 3. I hope this season doesn’t turn out to be a disappointment. #Riverdale” added another disappointed fan.
However, some viewers are excited to see the latest mystery unfold as another fan tweeted: “This season actually looks interesting to watch- ngl I kinda like the whole Jughead disappearance theme.”
The Jughead mystery doesn’t seem to be the only thing to get fans talking as the trailer also teased an alarming attack on his girlfriend Betty.
The scene in question sees Betty knocked out with a firm blow by an anonymous villain.
Could it be the same person that trapped Jughead?
However, some eagle-eyed fans think they’ve sussed out who attacked the fan-favourite.
Evil ex Serpent Penny Peabody (Brit Morgan) and Jughead have been at war ever since she tried to force him into the drug trade in his father’s absence, which ended with him cutting out her Serpant tattoo in a cold plot of revenge.
One fan commented: “Okay. That was definitely Penny who hit Betty over the head with the rifle.”
Riverdale season 4 premieres on The CW on October 9.
