Riverdale: "The Town" Photos Released
The CW has released a new batch of photos for "Chapter One Hundred and Three: The Town", the eighth episode of Riverdale's sixth season. The synopsis for the episode teases more drama with regards to the post-Rivervale status quo for the town, particularly as the Town Council tries to keep its integrity alive at multiple turns. Apparently, this will include a complication courtesy of Percival Pickens (Chris O'Shea), who is realistically tied to the town's founder, Colonel Pickens.
Lili Reinhart, Cole Sprouse, Mädchen Amick, Casey Cott, Vanessa Morgan, Erinn Westbrook and Drew Ray Tanner also star. Rob Seidenglanz directed the episode written by Brian E. Paterson."
The midseason return of Riverdale has been an interesting source of conversation among fans, between the months-long gap between new episodes, the midseason premiere being delayed by a few weeks, and the questions around the long-term future of the series, which has yet to be renewed for a seventh season.
"All of us want to shoot movies," Archie Andrews actor KJ Apa explained in a 2020 interview. "I think we're all, in a way, craving to work on other things because we're stuck in Vancouver on the show. Which is great — we all love working on the show. But we're all craving something else to bite into. It's awesome that we can do that too, because I don't know if that's common that a lot of TV actors can funnel into film that easily. I was always kind of scared of that, like, 'Man, I hope I can shoot movies, because I don't want to be pegged as Archie for the rest of my life.'"

Finally, Britta (guest star Kyra Leroux) makes a risky move to help Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch).
