The World of Riverdale will once again have a song in her heart.
During the show panel at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, it was revealed that yes, season 3 will include another full-fledged musical episode.
As fans will remember, the series broke format (to some extent) with a Carrie: The Musical themed episode earlier this year. The episode brought the fans a gruesome murder, new secrets – oh, and a lot of singing and dancing.
"I'm a big fanatic of Carrie the novel and then the movie" Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa admitted in an earlier interview. "I was obsessed with the Broadway flop of Carrie: The Musical Five or six years ago, one of my good friends revived it from Broadway, and he exposed it as the jewel I've always known So, we thought, "This would be thematically a great musical for Riverdale to do."
"This show also has archetypes like the good girl next door, the nice boy, the one Carrie takes to the prom. "Aguirre-Sacasa added." It felt like we could play with these archetypes. "
While it's unclear which show will inspire Riverdale's second musical episode the fans will certainly be eager to find out If the musical episode takes place during the season, it could turn out to be a major thematic shift for the show's ensemble.
"I do not think it would be Riverdale if There would not be anything tragic about a musical episode. Cole Sprouse, who plays Jughead Jones, said of last season's musical episode, "It can be a breath of fresh air for people who have seen a shattering series of events for these characters. But we still find a way to pick you up and fight back.
