Watch the brand new trailer below:
Coming to CW and Netflix on October 10th, the third series of Riverdale is almost upon us and A Space Oddity are here to break down the brand new promo trailer featuring brand new clips from the series!
Contains Spoilers for Series 1 & 2 of Riverdale
We begin with seeing Archie being taken away in handcuffs, presumably straight after the cliffhanger ending of Season 2 in which Archie was arrested for 'murdering the kid from Shadow Lake'.
We then see a shot of Archie (KJ Apa) and Veronica embracing each other in bed, presumably this is either a flashback to before Archie's imprisonment or Archie gets out of jail pretty fast...
We then see Hiram Lodge portrayed by the wonderful Mark Consuelos who was previously seen abandoning Archie after their apparent 'partnership' within Series 2.
We also see Veronica (Camila Mendes) arguing with what looks to be a closeup of her father, Hiram, stating: "We will survive whatever you have planned because we are endgame"
The next shot is arguably the best shot of the trailer, the four travelling down the road in an incredible motor, with the hair blowing in the wind. Also in this shot are Jughead and Betty portrayed by Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart respectively.
We then see Madelaine Petsch portraying Cheryl Blossom running down a corridor alongside her girlfriend Toni Topaz who we see again shortly.
Now for the most interesting shot of the teaser (and no, not because of the abs!), Archie seems to be brandishing a South Side Serpents tattoo, has Archie joined the SSS? Or is this all part of a plan...
We then see Jughead and Betty in what looks to be a science classroom, given away by the periodic table in the background, so it seems to suggest that Riverdale High is still well and truly open for business.
We also get to see FP Jones, the father of Jughead portrayed by Skeet Ulrich and Alice Cooper (the mother of Betty) portrayed by Mädchen Amick who seem to having some fun to put it simply after their reunion with the South Side Serpents at the end of Season 2.
We then see another shot of Archie being escorted around Riverdale Prison, could he be entering his cell for the first time?
As mentioned prior, we see Toni Topaz portrayed by Vanessa Morgan, in what seems to be the same location as before when we see her running with Cheryl.
We also get to see fan-favourite character Kevin Keller portrayed by Casey Cott and Moose Mason (Cody Kearsley) who got together at the climax of Season 2 after Moose's struggles with his sexuality.
Another intriguing shot shows Archie being attacked by prison officers in some sort of containment facility, only time will tell when it comes to finding out what is happening here...
The final few shots are VERY interesting however and offer insight into what the big-bad could be this series. An individual is seen opening a book which has some devilish and disgusting drawings in featuring skeletal figures and devil-like creatures.
We then have a closeup of Betty falling/fainting to the floor- could this be after looking at what we see next:
I'll be honest, us at ASO have literally no idea what this is- but it looks creepy!
This scene is from the original Superbowl trailer which shows 2 babies being offered as some sort of sacrifice to the creature seen above, now Riverdale, we don't know what you're doing here but if I see one sacrificed baby then I'm gonna walk.
The trailer closes with Jughead screaming 'Somebody help!' while we can see some sort or ritual activity taking place around him- is this the same place where the babies are being offered up? And who is that on the floor next to him?
