At the beginning of Season 3, Archie (KJ Apa) is waiting for the verdict of his trial and decides to spend one last free weekend with Betty (Lili Reinhart), Veronica (Camila Mendes) and Jughead (Cole Sprouse). After he's sentenced to two years in jail, Archie is caught in a power struggle inside the prison, while Veronica tries to find a way to break him out. Meanwhile, Betty and Jughead investigate a series of strange incidents that seem to be connected, uncovering a weird cult that somehow managed to bring a fantasy game to life.

My only hope, with just four episodes left in the season, is that this mundanity proves to be a trap, one that will rip us forward in a shocking turn of events.

April 24, 2019 | Full Review…

The third season of Riverdale sees the show moving further from the ensemble feeling of the first, continuing a trend which really started in the middle of the second.

February 1, 2019 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

One of our wishes was always that Riverdale would embrace the inherent insanity in making a dark Archie reboot and amplifiying its silly strangeness. This season it has done so.
