Riverdale Season 3 will include a special flashback episode which will see the Riverdale parents in a flashback setting. The episode will feature the “kids” of the show (the younger cast, including KJ Apa, Cole Sprouse, Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes, Madelaine Petsch & co.) playing their parents in flashback form.
Some guests from the episode have been announced including Mark Consuelos’ son Michael Consuelos playing a young Hiram Lodge.
The episode is called “The Midnight Club” and it is inspired by the film The Breakfast Club. Riverdale has already had Molly Ringwald on the series and this installment will feature another Breakfast Club alum as Anthony Michael Hall will be appearing in the flashback as Principal Featherhead who is described as “the longstanding principal at Riverdale High who gets caught up in the game the teenagers are playing in an unexpected way.”
“The Midnight Club” is still a ways away from airing — the fourth episode of Riverdale Season 3, it is currently scheduled to air on Wednesday, November 6.
To promote the episode, Warner Bros. TV and The CW have shared a fun piece of artwork showing what the actors playing the parents looked like “back in the day” — of course, now we want to see what it looks like to have their “kids” playing them. You can see that artwork below.
