Riverdale


 

Riverdale‘s writers have made it clear they’re big fans of Wes Craven, throwing in a reference (or outright dropping his name) at least once in almost every episode. The show cast Skeet Ulrich, best known for his role as Billy Loomis in Craven’s original Scream from 1996 (which just turned 21 on December 20th), and the actor recently talked about possibly getting Neve Campbell on Riverdale for a full-on Scream reunion.

Speaking to TV Line, Ulrich said:

“I mean, God, I think Neve [Campbell] would be really interesting,” Ulrich told the site. “I know she’s busy doing some films and stuff like that, so I don’t know if that’s a possibility. But yeah, I think she’d be very intriguing.”

He added, “She’s very talented, and I think the reference to Scream would really tickle people.”

It’d be great to get Campbell on the show. Sidney Prescott is one of the most popular horror movie heroes, and there are plenty of comparisons to be made between her and Riverdale‘s Betty Cooper, played by Lili Reinhart. In the interview, Ulrich was responding to a question about who should play Jughead’s mom when the time comes. Campbell and Ulrich had a really eerie, intriguing chemistry in Scream that Riverdale could replicate given the opportunity.

The show is currently on a midseason hiatus, returning on Wednesday, January 17th. Riverdale revealed the identity of its Black Hood killer just nine episodes into its second season, leaving the future of the show wide open. Creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa talked about what fans can expect from the second half in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, saying, “The second half of season 2 gets back to a little bit of Riverdale basics, which is focused on stories at the school, kind of getting back in deep on the relationships and the friendships.”

He continues, “There’s still going to be a pulpy noir crime element to the second half, but there will be a resurgence of high school hijinks, and getting back to the roots of what Archie’s all about, which is the kids and the school.” I hope this ends up being the case. Riverdale has an opportunity to treat its episodic format like the comics did, with more self-contained stories and glimpses at life in Riverdale, with a less intense crime aspect to carry the season arc.

Riverdale airs on The CW, every Wednesday at 8 PM!
