Shannon Purser Teases the “Dark” New Episodes of Riverdale, Season 3
The Riverdale, Season 2 finale left us wanting SO much more. And, after what felt like FOR-EH-VER of waiting, we’re finally about to get answers to our questions because the new season of the CW hit is set to air on October 10. With less than a month to go before we’re transported back into the lives of Archie, Betty, Veronica and the rest of the Riverdale residents, we decided to go straight to a RD source for all the dirty details of what to expect from the new episodes. Enter: Shannon Purser.
The 21-year-old actress, who plays Ethel Muggs on the series, tells us exclusively that this season of Riverdale takes a turn for the creepy.
“It’s definitely dark,” she says of the third season. “It kind of delves into the supernatural a little bit, which is really fun.”
From some of the promos on the show’s Twitter, we can tell that S3 is definitely going to be a little different that the first two. Whatcha doin’ there, Jughead?

Although the Stranger Things alum is super sweet IRL and Ethel is the same, the character isn’t safe from the dark changes during Season 3.
Shannon explains, “Ethel takes a very dark turn in this season, which was a stretch for me. It was good. It was a challenge for me to kind of get to play with all of the emotions she goes through. So, I am excited for people to see it, it should be interesting.”
According to the actress, these changes are “exciting,” especially for people who “enjoy fantasy” because they “will be really into it.”
Ultimately, she’s “excited to see what people think” of Riverdale, Season 3, and WE’RE excited to watch. October 10, where u at???
