Riverdale is coming back for a third season and we can't wait! Of course, we want to see what comes next for Betty, Archie, ​Veronica, and Jughead, but we're also super excited for some new characters.


During the show's San Diego Comic-Con panel, Riverdale's newest characters were ​confirmed: Jughead's mom Gladys, and sister Jellybean. Though Jughead (Cole Sprouse) and FP have talked about them, we've never seen them. It's unclear whether Gladys and FP are divorced, but they're definitely separated, and Jughead even debated moving to Toledo to be with his mom at the end of the first season. 

However, the Jones women will ​reportedly be coming back to the busy town of Riverdale in the eighth or ninth episode of the upcoming season. "We don't know anything about Jellybean just yet," Cole said during an interview late last year


"This is one of those dilemmas that I think we face because we have such a massive ensemble of characters... it means possibly less screen time for characters who already haven’t got enough," he continued.


Though the two new characters probably won't have a huge part, their inclusion will be super interesting, especially since things were just starting to heat up between ​FP and Alice Cooper..

We can't wait to see more, but we'll have until the ​third season comes out on October 10!
