An all new Riverdale premieres this Tuesday. And yes, we’re still in RiverVALE, and yes, Archie Andrews is still dead…💣☠️🚀🕷🌪☎️ — Riverdale show runner Roberto Aguirre Sacasa.
We won’t see Archie Andrews tonight on Part 2 of Riverdale’s Fall event series Rivervale.
Archie died on Part 1, sacrificed by the people of Rivervale.
His death will stick for the rest of the Rivervale event.
Perhaps to give KJ Apa time with his son Sasha Vai Keneti Apa, born September 23rd after Part 1 of Rivervale had wrapped filming.
But Archie Andrews will be back when Riverdale season 6 resumes airing on March 6th.
KJ Apa has been filming episodes in Vancouver since Rivervale wrapped. He even shared a story last week of driving north on Cambie Street and seeing a friend in the car in front — Nat Boltt.
