Riverdale Season 6 Expected Cast
Even though Season 5 hasn’t concluded yet, we can’t say which cast members will return or who won’t because we can’t forecast the future. Riverdale, on the other hand, would not be imaginable without the central characters returning for the upcoming season.
However, there will undoubtedly be additional cast members, as there are in every season, with some wonderful characters being introduced. Though we expect to see the following characters in the upcoming season and we definitely want to see them, especially our 5 incredible favorite characters, you know who I’m talking about.
- Cole Sprouse – Jughead
- Lili Reinhart – Betty Cooper
- Camila Mendes – Veronica Lodge
- KJ Apa – Archie Andrews
- Madelaine Petsch – Cheryl Blossom
- Molly Ringwald – Mary Andrews
- Casey Cott – Kevin Keller
Let’s keep our fingers crossed, also regular cast members will be present as well. I hope we get to see Jughead because everyone’s definitely worried after Jughead faked his death at the end of Season 4.
