Jughead seems to be the only one who knows about their life before the timeline changed .
This sets up Riverdale’s final season.
We were debating on what the final beats of [the finale] would be and torn between a very big swing and a quieter ending. And it definitely emboldened us to go for the big swing for Season 7. It’s really exciting. — Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa on the news that season 7 would be Riverdale’s last.
The 1950s is the time period associated with the original Archie Comics.
Riverdale paid homage to the OG comics in its 100th episode, The Jughead Paradox.
