Those who followed “Riverdale” on its first season might have developed a certain liking for Betty and Jughead. Unfortunately, those rooting for Bughead might get some bad news this upcoming season.

Spoiler alert! This article contains “Riverdale” spoilers. Read on if you would like to know what happens before the next episode airs.

Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart are love birds in real life, and they look perfect as well on the show. Unfortunately, it seems like Jughead’s decision to join the Southside Serpents is about to cause him some serious trouble.

MTV says they are not the only couple headed towards a rocky road. With the entire squad now on a manhunt for whoever shot Archie’s dad Fred Andrews, which led to the cliffhanger on season 1, things are rough for Archie and Veronica as well. Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa even revealed earlier this week that the manhunt could open up darker chapters of Riverdale’s history.

Aguirre-Sacasa also hinted that the arrival of new character Nick St. Clair, who happens to be Veronica’s fun loving friend, will shake things up. It looks like Bughead fans would have to start saying goodbye to their hopes of seeing those romantic moments in the first season.

“It's almost like every force in the universe is out to pry Bughead apart,” Aguirre-Sacasa added. He also said that the problems are coming from all possible directions. “Riverdale” will be back for its second season on October 11 on The CW.
