The CW has released an official description for the Riverdale Season 2 premiere!

The season premiere airs Wednesday, October 11 and goes by the title “A Kiss Before Dying!”

UPDATE: We now have some photos! Look for them beneath the description. The photos show the immediate aftermath of Fred’s shooting and also include the first looks at the show’s new hot Reggie (Charles Melton) and Hiram Lodge (Mark Consuelos!) And OF COURSE there’s a little bit of “Bughead” in the gallery.

THE ANGEL OF DEATH — As Fred’s (Luke Perry) life hangs in the balance following the shooting at Pop’s diner, Archie (KJ Apa) struggles with the emotional aftermath of what he witnessed.  Meanwhile, as Veronica (Camila Mendes) steps out of her comfort zone to support Archie, she learns that her father Hiram (Mark Consuelos) has arrived to Riverdale earlier than expected.  Elsewhere, at Pop’s diner, Pop Tate (guest star Alvin Sanders) recounts the chilling details of the shooting, which leaves Jughead (Cole Sprouse) and Betty (Lili Reinhart) questioning the gunman’s true motives.  Lastly, after running into Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) at the hospital, Betty and Kevin (Casey Cott) are surprised to learn about the fire at Thornhill.  Rob Seidenglanz directed the episode written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (#201.)  Original airdate 10/11/2017.
