Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa gives the first glimpse into the upcoming Riverdale Season 7 by showing the last and final season's opening scene.
The showrunner celebrated Entertainment Weekly's coverage of Riverdale Season 7 by posting the said clip on Instagram. The show's 1950s theme is seen for the first time and looks very promising.
Riverdale Season 7 Opening Scene
The video started with a jukebox playing Bill Haley and His Comets' 1954 hit "Rock Around the Clock," highlighting the new season's time travel aspect and emphasizing the era it's set in.
From there, the major and returning characters are introduced through a retro-style TV intro. As everyone looks cool, Jughead (Cole Sprouse) seems to be the only one who looks worried, as he says in his narration that they're now in the year 1955.
Aside from Sprouse, the clip also confirms the return of Madelaine Petsch as Cheryl, KJ Apa as Archie, Lili Reinhart as Betty, Camila Mendes as Veronica, Casey Cott as Kevin, Vanessa Morgan as Toni, and the newly added Erinn Westbrook as Tabitha in Riverdale Season 7.
Despite the change of the era, Pop's Chock'lit Shoppe will remain the group's favorite hangout place, though it now features a more contemporary atmosphere.
What will Happen in Riverdale Season 7?
According to ScreenRant, the last and final season will be more toned-down and character-focused than the previous seasons.
But don't be deceived; bold and bizarre storylines will still be seen.
However, for it to focus on the relationships within the series, the characters have to remember their original lives to get the proper closure they need.
So, what will Jughead do this time? Can he help them remember their previous lives?
Aguirre-Sacasa revealed, via Collider, that Jughead would learn why he's the only one who remembers everything after the fourth season finale that saw Cheryl divert the comet that destroyed the town.
So, this time, everyone will try their best to find their way out instead of battling a new villain.
"The biggest struggle is our characters trying to live authentic individualistic lives during a time period where that was really hard to do," he said.
