Riverdale season 2 received the green light from The CW and the crazy zombie theory about it could possibly make it even more interesting.
The CW gave its early blessing to the freshman show just six weeks since its premiere. Deadline cites the decision as a reflection of the network’s faith in Riverdale’s creative strength. Moreover, its trust in Greg Berlanti who is part of the production.
Amid the good news about Riverdale season 2 is the emergence of one of the craziest theories about the Archie Comics-based drama. Hence, it raises questions about its possibility.
Crazy Zombie Theory About Riverdale
According to Pop Sugar, the theory suggests the quiet town could be on its way to a zombie apocalypse. While it might seem like a far-fetched idea, there is a chance it might happen.
As it turns out, the theory is not without merit. Apparently, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is behind the popular comic series Afterlife With Archie which features Archie and the gang fighting flesh-eating monsters.
Indeed, several clues would seem to support this theory posted on Reddit a while back. First, the possible appearance of Sabrina Spellman before season 1 ends. Apparently, Sabrina caused the apocalypse in the comic series albeit by accident.
In Afterlife with Archie, the teenage witch tried to resurrect Jughead’s dog Hot Dog. However, the undead creature turned his owner into a zombie.
Previously, Aguirre-Sacasa expressed optimism at the teenage witch joining the series. However, he also admitted to the challenges of bringing a supernatural element on board. Hence, the showrunner hinted at a different version of her for the series.
Second reason points to Cheryl’s frightening dream in episode five Heart of Darkness wherein Jason appears as a zombie. Apparently, she mentioned Greendale, which happens to be where Sabrina lives.
Riverdale Season 2 Spoilers
Meanwhile, showrunner Aguirre-Sacasa assured fans the murder case of Jason Blossom will be solved in the first season. Moreover, he teased about what is ahead in Riverdale season 2. At the recent Coast-To-Coast Comic-Con, Aguirre-Sacasa remarked:
“We’ll be teasing in the big bad for season 2. It’s someone who has long, deep ties to the Archie universe. It’s definitely a character people know. I think it’s a character that people won’t see coming.”
While the showrunner could not go into specifics, he assured more announcements are forthcoming at the San Diego Comic-Con. Nevertheless, Bleeding Cool has thrown in Alexandra Cabbot’s name as the possible Riverdale season 2 villain.
