Reinhart explains she doesn’t know anything about Riverdale‘s next season, which starts filming this month. However, she has ideas for her character.
The actress hopes that Season 3 will focus more on Betty’s friendship with Veronica, Cott and Kevin.
“It’s something I’m very much pushing for, that you do see the kids interact more as a group,” Reinhart tells Harpers Bazaar.
Reinhart explains her relationship with the show’s creator, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, is collaborative, which means her plans might come true.
Plus, the two of them have a common goal: To make Betty happier this season.
“In the season finale, when you saw Betty and Jughead in bed together, she’s smiling when he says, “Will you be my serpent queen?” [Aguirre-Sacasa] told me, ‘When I watched that scene and I saw Betty smile, it made me want more of that,” she explains.
“I think the girl deserves a break.”
Riverdale returns on Wednesday, October 10 at 8 p.m, so we won’t have to wait a long time to find out if Reinhart’s wishes will be fulfilled.

Madelaine Petsch and Ashleigh Murray, who play Cheryl Blossom and Josie McCoy, respectively, recently shared a little of what we can expect when the series returns in October.
“You know, our show is ever-evolving. So sometimes, we have these really great ideas and really great plans that don’t always come to fruition, because maybe something else might come up that works better,” Murray said. “We’re very, very lucky. Roberto is so open to conversations about what we’d like to see for our characters, which is very rare.”
