Riverdale Boss Teases The Return of the Black Hood & More

If you thought you’d seen the last of the Black Hood on “Riverdale,” you should thhink again. The mystery of the masked menace with green eyes is not quite over yet as Archie (KJ Apa), Veronica (Camila Mendes), Betty (Lili Reinhart), Jughead (Cole Sprouse), and the rest of the gang head into the homestretch of season 2.

“We always knew it wasn’t going to be just Mr. Svenson the janitor,” said executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa at the Paley Center for Media’s PaleyFest panel in Hollywood on Sunday.

“When we started the season we had three likely suspects. So for the first half of the season, as we were writing it, we were always dropping red herrings so we could pick,” Aguirre-Sacasa continued. “And as we moved into the second half and when we get back to the Black Hood in the last couple of episodes, we have a pretty clear idea [of who it is] and we’ve been writing towards that.”

Joining Aguirre-Sacasa on the panel were fellow executive producers Greg Berlanti and Jon Goldwater, as well as members of the cast including Apa, Mendes, Reinhart, Sprouse, Madelaine Petsch, Ashleigh Murray, Marisol Nichols, Madchen Amick, Skeet Ulrich and Luke Perry.
