Riverdale‘s beloved Jughead character is gaining two new family members in Season 3, and we’re SO ready!
We’re just a few short days away from the Season 3 debut of Riverdale and our hearts can hardly take the anticipation.
Between Shannon Purser’s tease over “pretty big changes” with Ethel Muggs to the show’s creator teasing a very eventful summer for one group of characters, we’ve been on the edge of our seats as we await the third season.
And now, fans have even MORE to be excited about as we’re finally introduced to Jughead’s mom Gladys Jones along with his sister, Jellybean.
News of the introduction was revealed during the Riverdale panel at New York Comic Con on Oct 7.
Actress Gina Gershon will be taking the role of Jughead’s mom, a businesswoman in charge of the salvage yard and who is capable of commanding the Serpents. Trinity Likins will play Jellybean, AKA “JB”, who lives in Toledo and is described as “wise beyond her years.”
Jughead actor Cole Sprouse once described his character’s family as “tormented” and noted that bringing them into the series could make Jughead’s storyline even “sadder.”
We can’t wait to get a deeper look into Jughead’s character!
Riverdale returns to the CW this Wednesday, October 10 at 8 p.m. and in the meantime, be sure to check out the trailer for Season 3 below.
