He began: “Archie is trying to do what his father did, which is help his community, help his town, help his friends, make the right choices…
“He’s always wanted to follow in Fred’s footsteps, but now feels that burden even more so.”
However, this change won’t be easy as the Riverdale High senior is set to struggle all season with the burden of filling his father’s shoes.
The showrunner revealed Archie is “going to struggle with grief, and struggle with how to live up to Fred’s memory.”
Riverdale season four started on October 9 on The CW and October 10 on Netflix.
