Riverdale Season 7 takes place in the 1950s, with Jughead (Cole Sprouse) having no idea how he got there or how to get back to the present. His friends can’t help; they’re living seemingly authentic lives, similar to their classic Archie Comics counterparts, unaware that they’ve ever been anywhere else.

Archie (KJ Apa) is the classic all-American teen. Betty (Lili Reinhart) is the girl next door, starting to question everything about her perfect life. Veronica (Camila Mendes) is a Hollywood starlet who moved to town under mysterious circumstances. Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) is the Queen Bee with a secret longing. Toni (Vanessa Morgan) is an activist fighting for the Black students of recently integrated Riverdale High. Kevin (Casey Cott) is a “square” crooner wrestling with his sexual identity. Reggie (Charles Melton) is a basketball star from farm country. Fangs (Drew Ray Tanner) is a greaser destined to be an Elvis-type star.

When Riverdale’s Guardian Angel, Tabitha (Erinn Westbrook) visits Jughead, he learns the cosmic truth about what’s happened. Will everyone be able to return to the present, or will they be trapped in the ’50s forever?

The new Julian Blossom is the final season antagonist to all of the teen characters, especially Archie. He’s a rich, entitled preppy who always gets his way and on the rare occasion when he doesn’t – like with Veronica — he makes life miserable for everyone around him.
