Riverdale Season 3 Sees the Arrival of a ‘Cult Leader’ To The Mysterious Town

Riverdale continues to expand its universe with new characters in Season 3. According to a new report, the series is going to introduce a few memorable Archie comics’ characters. Alongside, Evelyn Evernever, the show is reportedly going to bring to life her father Edgar Evernever.

As per The Hashtag Show, Edgar is Riverdale’s “own cult leader.” The father-daughter duo is only going to add to the dark and mysterious side of the town. The aforementioned publication revealed a few casting details about the newest addition to the series. Edgar is the late 30s- Early 40s male. The casting is open to any ethnicity. Professionally he is a new-age “health guru” and he will be associated with Cooper matriarch Alice.

“[EDGAR EVERNEVER]Male, Late 30’s – Early 40’s, Open Ethnicity.  A recent arrival in Riverdale with his daughter Evelyn, Edgar is a new-age health “guru” who has helped Alice get her life together after the events of Season Two. He’s attractive, in a neighborly way, and charismatic—a wise, comforting presence. (An actor with ‘90’s-2000’s pop-culture cachet is a plus),” reads the casting description as quoted by THS.

Just as Evelyn, her father will also reportedly be joining the cast as “major recurring guest star.” For those who are not familiar, Everlyn Evernever is remembered for role in “Little Archie” series (1953 to 83) where she played the role of a young girl who is acquainted with Archie and his gang. She is not a member of Archie’s core group. Shy and a bit of troubled, her only true friend is her doll, Minerva. She likes to think of herself a “bou’tiful gal.” After a long break, the character reappeared in one of the recent editions “Betty & Veronica Spectacular” where she kidnaps Archie. Also, in the comics, she happens to be Archie’s first kiss.

When Riverdale Season 3 premieres it is expected to focus on the aftermath of events that unfolded in Season 2 finale. Recently, the showrunner revealed the premiere title and a comic illustration possibly hinting at what’s coming next.

Riverdale Season 3 is scheduled to premiere on Oct. 10 on The CW. Stay tuned for more updates and information on the same.
