'Riverdale' Season 3 Is Going To Give Us A New Big Bad & I've Got Goosebumps

With Riverdale on a summer hiatus, fans are feeling the drought of drama and suspense until the season 3 premiere in October. In the words of Hilary Duff on A Cinderella Story, “Waiting for [Riverdale] is like waiting for rain in this drought, useless and disappointing.”

Well, Riverdale fans, here’s a detail about season 3 that might help you make it through the summer: things are about to get shadier.

Riverdale creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa recently let TV Guide in on a little secret. “Hiram is definitely, definitely, definitely one of our big bads," he said. "Riverdale is a small town, but a big place."

While season 2 left us with Hiram framing Archie for murder, there’s apparently more on the horizon when it comes to trouble (not that there’s a lack of it ever). Aguirre-Sacasa unfortunately didn’t drop any names, but that doesn’t mean fans can’t spend the next couple of months playing a worthwhile game of “Guess Who?”.

There’s also the possibility of someone new coming onto the playing field and throwing fans a curveball. It’s impossible to know exactly what’s coming, but I’m sure fans are thankful for the little bit of information to keep them satisfied for a few weeks anyway.

Catch the Riverdale season 3 premiere on Wednesday, October 10 at 8/7c on The CW.
