Riverdalesimply received a little bit swankier!
The CW hit kicked off its third season on Wednesday, and whereas Archie’s incarceration, Jughead’s Serpent drama and Betty’s creepy house life gave everybody loads to speak about, the present can be giving the gang a brand new place to speak about it in. Veronica’s speakeasy makes its debut in this season’s episode three!
ET has an unique first look at the flowery new venue — which is unquestionably giving us Old Hollywood glamour vibes. Four new pictures present Veronica and Josie all dolled up and exhibiting off their expertise behind the mic — and having a little bit chat onstage — in addition to Veronica hanging out with Reggie at the bar (Is he sufficiently old to bartend? Is Veronica sufficiently old to run this institution? Anything goes in Riverdale). Check out the pics beneath:
Fans will do not forget that Veronica’s concept for the speakeasy was introduced up at the tip of season two, with the venue sitting below her different institution, Pop’s Chock’lit Shoppe. While the pictures undoubtedly tease a little bit extra acting from Veronica this season, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa lately teased to ET that she’ll have rather more on her plate.
“Listen, they are in trouble,” Aguirre-Sacasa stated of Veronica’s relationship with Archie in season three. “Archie is facing potential time in juvie hall and very early on, there’s the question of, ‘If Archie goes away, are Archie and Veronica going to break up?’”
“I think both of them are really, really crazy about each other and are in love with each other and I think neither of them wants that to happen,” he continued. “They’re going to fight against that and they’re going to fight to stay together as hard as they can, but there are going to be certain realities that you just kind of can’t work around.”
What does that actually imply for our beloved Varchie? “You can tell Varchie fans that they are fighting to stay together — and if the ship does go down, they will go down fighting because these two are crazy about each other and they just won’t let go of each other,” Aguirre-Sacasa promised.
Riverdale airs Wednesdays at eight p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
