Cole – who plays Jughead Jones in the hit Netflix series – has revealed even he is left wondering what’s going to happen next.
Cole, who is also the star of new film Five Feet Apart told Wonderland that even the cast don’t know what’s going to happen next on Riverdale, “Every week you’re going, ‘Holy s**t, what the hell is going on?’”
Cole – who looked completely different in his cover shoot for Wonderland alongside Five Feet Apart co-star Hayley Lu Richardson – revealed, “[Riverdale] applies very well to the short attention span economy that we’ve built through social media, and I feel like it hits the nail on the head.”
He added that the show is a very self-aware teen drama, explaining, “I think there’s this cynicism, or perhaps this pretentiousness within all of us that looks at teen dramas with a schlocky nature.
“And due to the fact that Riverdale sort of, in a self-aware capacity, also does that, while maintaining a level of quality with cinematography and with some other technical elements, I feel like it hit the nail on the head.”
The full interview will be in Wonderland magazine, out March 1st.
