A New 'Riverdale' Season 4 Trailer Is Here
Riverdale fans have mere days to wait until the fourth season drops on Netflix, now a brand new trailer gives us a glimpse of what's in store for the residents of Riverdale.
Psst...We have exciting news to share about the future of Pretty 52
The trailer, which debuted at Comic Con in New York this weekend, gives a few clues about what lies ahead for Archie and co.
The fourth season starts with Archie Andrews (KJ Apa) receiving a devastating call about his father Fred.
The character has notably been written out of the show after the actor who played him, Luke Perry, died in March aged 52 after a suffering a stroke.
Sad scenes from his memorial play in the trailer, and we see Archie endeavour to turn the boxing gym into a coaching school for kids.
The trailer also reveals further developments for the rest of the cast including Veronica (Camila Mendes) who make a visit to her criminal father in prison.

There's also Betty (Lili Reinhart) who continues to search for answers about her missing mother and her mysterious half-brother Charles, who we saw return as an FBI agent at the end of season three.
Meanwhile, Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) tries to contact her dead brother but gets more than she bargained for.
The series, based on the characters of Archie Comics, will pick up after the high drama of season three which saw the residents of Riverdale consumed by Edgar Evernever's cult, The Farm.
After Luke Perry's death, it was announced that the first episode of season four, titled 'Chapter Fifty-Eight: In Memoriam', would be a tribute episode to the former cast member.
Speaking to TV Line about the finer details, show runner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa revealed the episode would not begin with a recap as former series have.
"After we finished the episode, everyone said, 'You know what? You don't really need that,'" he said. "The producers also wanted a little bit of extra time, so we took out the 'previously on'... We wanted to let the episode breathe a little."
Riverdale season four is set to premiere on Netflix UK on 10th October 2019 at 8am.
