The first teaser trailer for the CW’s Riverdale is finally here, and we have some questions about that ending.
We’ve all be anxiously awaiting the return of Riverdale, and over this past weekend, the show’s official Twitter page revealed the first teaser trailer of season 3.
The almost three-minute teaser clip mostly features a recap of the previous season, but the last 40 seconds of the teaser is where fans get a glimpse at season 3, and it’s a lot.
Watch the teaser below!

Yeah, we have so many questions, especially over that ending.
In addition to the teaser trailer, that debuted at the show’s panel at the San Diego Comic-Con, we also found out that two characters will be coming to town. Per Comicbook.com, fans will finally get to meet Jughead’s mom and sister.
We’re not sure how big of a role the two will play in the series, but we do know that the two will be making their official appearance in episodes eight or nine of the forthcoming season.
That’s not the only exciting things we know about the show’s third season.
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Riverdale‘s showrunner, teased the show’s theme back in May with the Hollywood Reporter, where he shared that fans should “absolutely” expect something new from the show.
“In season one, we did a murder mystery, and in season two, we did a serial killer in a small town and The Godfather in a small town. Season three will have a high genre element like that.”
We’re not sure what the “high genre element” will be, but we do know that the show’s third season will deal with everything that happened in the season two final…and it’s a lot.
In an interview with TV Line back in April, stars KJ Apa and Cole Sprouse, who play Archie Andrews and Jughead Jones, teased that the third season is set to focus on the “tragedy” in the season two final.
Of the new season, Apa shared: “It’s a tragedy, really, what happens. I think the last episode, if I were to describe it in one way, it would be tragic — for one person in particular in the show, but for everyone, ultimately.”
The CW recently dropped the premiere dates of all of our fave shows, and we were beyond excited to see Riverdale is returning to the network this October!
The first episode of Season 3 will air on Wednesday, October 10 at 8 p.m. and we’re already counting down the days until the show comes back.
