    Warning: There are major spoilers ahead for "The Walking Dead" season nine.

    "The Walking Dead" season nine premiere kicked off with a flash-forward ahead in time, new opening credits, and a big death you may not have seen coming on the first episode. 

    This is your last chance to head back before spoilers. 

    walking dead 901 maggie

    On the premiere, Gregory set a plan in motion to try and assassinate current Hilltop leader Maggie (Lauren Cohan) near the end of the season premiere. As a punishment for his crime, Maggie decided against locking Gregory up in a prison cell. 

    Gregory's resentment of Maggie and Rick's group has been evident ever since his introduction near the end of season six. After flip-flopping allegiances for the past two seasons, Maggie decided the former leader of the Hilltop had been given enough chances. 

    At the end of the premiere, Maggie made the difficult decision to have Gregory hanged for his crimes.

    It's a scene that's straight out of the comics, so fans probably saw it coming.

    Xander Berkeley, who plays Gregory, told The Hollywood Reporter his character's death was the reason he signed on for the role.

    "I was always looking forward to the hanging, because it was death that I had yet to experience, and I've made my living dying," said Berkeley, who has played many characters who have been killed on screen over the years.

    However, it was a shock to see Gregory leave the show on the season premiere instead of a few episodes into the season.

    Why didn't Maggie choose to spare the former Hilltop leader?

    "I think it just goes a lot to Maggie's state of mind," executive producer and season premiere director Greg Nicotero told INSIDER. "The last time that we saw her, she had been kind of betrayed by Rick, because the entire intent was to find Negan and kill him."

    Nicotero said that now that Maggie has her son Hershel to look out for, she feels the need to step up and be a leader not only for him, but to guarantee the safety and future of the Hilltop. 

    "The scene where Rick and Maggie are on the balcony, and they're talking, I love that Maggie says, 'Listen, Rick. You said that eventually, people were going to be following me, and you were going to be following me. That hasn't happened yet,'" he continued. "She's really stepping up and challenging Rick, and saying, 'You know what? You have your way of doing things. I have my way of doing things, and this is all fine and good, but I'm going to do things the way I want to do them.'"

    Plan to see a lot more of the differences between Maggie and Rick's leadership styles as the season continues its next few episodes.

    Though we expected to see Gregory's defiance and eventual death from the comics make it to screen, we were surprised to see it happen so early on the season.

    Berkeley told THR he had the sense that his death was supposed to be part of a multiple-episode story arc that was truncated down to the premiere. 

    "I was given the sense that it was part of an arc, and that all arcs are made to create a circle, and that the full circle would be that he would be brought back up to a place of power before the inevitable conclusion of the horrific demise that we knew [from the comics]," said Berkeley.

    Nicotero told INSIDER Berkeley's exit on the premiere was purposeful. 

    "Because it's so unexpected, we really felt that it was important to kind of launch Maggie's story, at that point, and to let the audience know that you can't screw around with her," he said of killing Gregory off in the premiere. "I mean, she's not going to stand by idly while things happen."

    "Maggie is prepared to do what she needs to do," continued Nicotero. "She's been grieving Glen very much so for the past two seasons, so this is, it's just a great luck of change to get a chance to see Lauren Cohan really, really having an opportunity to get into some great character stuff with Maggie, because she's been an amazing character since season two."

    New showrunner Angela Kang briefly addressed why the show killed Gregory off in the premiere instead of waiting until later in the season.

    "I think usually this is the type of story we would build to over the course of the season, except this is a story we've been building to for a long time." Kang said on aftershow "Talking Dead.""We always knew we were going to have this moment from the comic book and we just kind of said, 'OK. Where does this fall?' And it's like, you know what? Let's just put the pedal to the metal and get it over with. The audience knows who this guy is. Maggie knows who this guy is. It's a pretty quick decision for her."

    "The arc that comes out of it, it's like a domino effect that ripples out from this incident on into many episodes afterwards. We thought that was really fun," Kang added.

    "The Walking Dead" airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on AMC.

    walking dead 901 maggie

    Warning: There are massive spoilers ahead for "The Walking Dead."

    New showrunner Angela Kang is bringing AMC's "The Walking Dead" back to its roots. So much happened in the first episode of the season nine premiere that you may have had some serious season one vibes.

    Without much time spent on the road, the series was able to focus on its ensemble cast and bring them back together in multiple locations at Alexandria, the Hilltop, and the Sanctuary.

    It all culminated on a grim note for one member of "The Walking Dead" family. Even if you are familiar with the comic books, you probably didn't anticipate seeing a big name fall this early on in the show.

    Last chance to head back before spoilers. 

    gregory maggie 901 walking dead

    After assuming leadership of the Hilltop from Gregory in an election, Gregory is hellbent on gaining back control of his former community from Maggie. 

    Gregory sees an opportunity when one of the Hilltop community members gets killed on an excursion to Washington, D.C. He tries to have Maggie assassinated to resume responsibility over the community once again. His plan unfortunately goes awry and Maggie decides she's had it with Gregory and he's hung in front of the community.

    How it goes down in the comic

    Gregory does his dirty work himself in the comics. Over the course of several issues, its revealed that he tries to poison Maggie.

    The biggest differences? Maggie actually consults Jesus and says they can't kill Gregory. It's not until she realizes how much of an actual threat he is to the peace at the Hilltop that she decides to have him hanged.

    Maggie holds the hanging at a tree in the following issue.

    While we expected this storyline to play out this season, we were a bit surprised to see it all go down on the first episode of the new season. 

    So were viewers. 

    But the majority were in agreement that it was time for Gregory to go.

    On aftershow "Talking Dead," new showrunner Angela Kang addressed why Gregory was killed off in the season premiere and not episodes down the line. Kang said she didn't want his death dragged out.

    "I think usually this is the type of story we would build to over the course of the season, except this is a story we've been building to for a long time." Kang said. "We always knew we were going to have this moment from the comic book and we just kind of said, 'OK. Where does this fall?' And it's like, you know what? Let's just put the pedal to the metal and get it over with. The audience knows who this guy is. Maggie knows who this guy is. It's a pretty quick decision for her."

    Some people are a little nervous about where Maggie is heading from here on out.

    And they're right to be, according to Kang. 

    "The arc that comes out of it, it's like a domino effect that ripples out from this incident on into many episodes afterwards," Kang added about Maggie's decision to kill Gregory.

    daryl the walking dead cosplay nycc

    Warning: There are spoilers ahead for "The Walking Dead" season nine premiere. 

    "The Walking Dead" returned for its ninth season with a new showrunner, Angela Kang, new opening credits, and a major death. But there was one other thing that really got people talking a lot during the episode. 

    Many fans noticed that fan-favorite Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) had more lines on the show than it seemed he has had in years. 

    Since the death of Glenn on season seven, Daryl has kind of backtracked on speaking a lot. Often his speech seemed like it was toned down essentially to short sentences, a word here or there, or grunts. It didn't help that he was locked up at the Sanctuary under Negan's rule.

    After a time jump of a year-and-a-half on the season nine premiere, Daryl suddenly wasn't only speaking in full sentences but he appeared in multiple scenes speaking at length not just with Rick, but also Maggie, and Carol, and Oceanside's Cyndie.

    He had some of the most dialogue in the entire episode and fans took notice. 

    It's not something that has gone unnoticed by actor Reedus either. 

    "The last couple of seasons I didn't say much, that's true," said Reedus on aftershow "Talking Dead," trying to explain exactly why that was the case. 

    "It's always been story first. And [former showrunner] Scott [M. Gimple] was always story first," he continued. "He would tell me, 'Don't worry, you'll talk again one day.'" 

    the walking dead norman reedus daryl season 9

    Though we saw Daryl speak a lot on the season premiere, Reedus hints that you're not going to see him fill Rick's role necessarily when actor Andrew Lincoln departs the show this season.

    "I don't think Daryl's ever the type of character that's going to build a podium and give an inspirational speech. He's just not that guy," said Reedus.

    Daryl's meaty dialogue was one of many changes from the previous few seasons fans were applauding Sunday night.

    Many thanked and credited the work of Kang, who has been a writer on the show since season two, for bringing about a new feel to the show.

    "The Walking Dead" airs Sundays on AMC.

    daryl michonne rick walking dead season 901

    Warning: There are spoilers ahead for the ninth season of "The Walking Dead."

    "The Walking Dead" kicked off its ninth season premiere, "A New Beginning," with a new showrunner, new opening credits, and a big shock at the end of the first episode.

    As always, the shows had a bunch of references and nods to details from the comics and earlier episodes you may have missed. The new black and white opening credits have numerous Easter eggs alone.

    INSIDER rounded up a lot of these tiny moments you may have overlooked, including why there are so many crows and a new fashion item Michonne carries around you definitely didn't spot. 

    Keep reading to see what you may have missed.

    The season nine premiere opened showing a new spike system that's used to gain entry into Alexandria.

    It reminded us of another setup the survivors used in the past to protect themselves from the undead.



    It sure reminds us of the spike system Rick's group implemented in front of the prison during seasons three and four to stop some of the undead.

    Unlike the prison setup, these spikes can be moved back and forth.



    Rick and Michonne take Judith out for a long walk around their new home.

    You may not have thought of it instantly because Judith was speaking for the first time, but Rick was fulfilling one of his son's dying wishes.

    veronica reggie riverdale

    • "Riverdale" stars Camila Mendes and Charles Melton appear to have confirmed their relationship.
    • Mendes shared a photo on Instagram of the two together and captioned it "mine." 
    • They sparked reports that they were dating in September. 

    It seems that another "Riverdale" couple is together. 

    On Sunday, Camila Mendes, who plays Veronica Lodge on The CW show, shared an adorable photo on Instagram hugging co-star Charles Melton, who plays Reggie Mantle, as he planted a kiss on her face. The 24-year-old actress captioned the photo "mine."

    A post shared by camila mendes (@camimendes) on Oct 7, 2018 at 12:11pm PDT on

    The two actors sparked reports that they were dating back in September when fans spotted them kissing while at the movies. 

    Representatives for Mendes didn't immediately respond to INSIDER's request for comment.

    Things must've changed since Mendes previously told Nylon in July that she wasn't looking to date an actor

    "It's just dating people in the industry is tough," she said. "I did for a little bit. I've just dated actors...You only meet people through work and that can be really tough, because you're not necessarily meeting people that you're similar to. It's just people that you're with because you're working on the same project."

    The new "Riverdale" couple joins co-stars Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart, who have been dating since last summer

    The series returns for its third season Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET.

    sansa stark game of thrones

    Sophie Turner didn't leave the "Game of Thrones" set empty handed.

    During a Saturday panel at New York Comic Con, the 22-year-old actress revealed that she kept a corset she wore on set as Sansa Stark. 

    She also said that both Kit Harington and Maisie Williams took swords from set

    Williams, who plays Arya Stark, previously told BBC Radio One that she kept her brown leather jacket from recent seasons. 

    "I can imagine it being something that I'm like, 'Oh, I was on this show once upon a time and this was the jacket I wore,'"she said. "And my grandkids being like, 'Please stop.'"

    She didn't mention her sword, Needle, at all during that interview but it would make sense if that's the sword she took.

    As for Kit Harington, he once told "Entertainment Tonight" that the one prop he wanted to take home was his sword, Longclaw. 

    "There's only one that I've ever wanted: I want my sword," Harington said. "The first season they were like, 'Yeah, yeah, yeah of course,' and as the seasons went on and the show became more and more popular and that sword's value went up, they became slowly quieter about it."

    He also told Men's Journal that he kept some of Jon Snow's armor, but didn't mention the sword. 

    "I kept some of the armor that I use for Jon Snow's outfit, like the wrist protectors I’ll wear in his costume," he said. "I thought those were pretty cool."

    "Game of Thrones" will return for its eighth and final season in 2019.

    Big Mouth_203_01

    Need something to watch on Netflix this week?

    Every week, we gather a list of three shows you can watch on Netflix right now. There's shows you can finish in a day, and some you can just get started on. We mix shows that have recently come onto the service (like season two of "Big  Mouth") with some old favorites you might have missed.

    From season two of  the Netflix original "Big Mouth" to the 90s docuseries fittingly called "The Nineties" that aired on CNN last year, here are three great shows you should watch this week.

    SEE ALSO: The official trailer for the final season of Netflix's 'House of Cards' teases an intense season centered on Claire Underwood — and shows a country questioning its first woman president

    "Big Mouth" - a Netflix Original

    Seasons: 2

    Episodes: 20

    Season two of the delightful, informative, but also very gross animated comedy from Nick Kroll dropped over the weekend. It's laugh-out-loud funny throughout every episode, and goes even deeper into puberty than season one as it delves into body image depression (particularly from the female perspective).



    "I'm Sorry"

    Seasons: 1

    Episodes: 10

    This comedy follows a comedy writer and mother whose confidence in saying or doing whatever she wants can get her into some trouble. It's a cute, easy, and quick watch that represents a modern American family in a unique but authentic way, and Andrea Savage carries the leading role well. 



    "The Nineties"

    Seasons: 1

    Episodes: 8

    This exploration of events and news from our culture's favorite decade right now doesn't go into as great a depth as it could, but it touches on everything from politics to pop culture, and you might learn something you didn't know.

    jennifer garner the ellen degeneres show

     

    Jennifer Garner went to a movie theater and eavesdropped to hear fan reactions— and now she's explaining what exactly happened.

    During an appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Monday, the "Peppermint" star recalled going to a cinema in September to receive feedback from moviegoers. In the video shared by Garner at the time, she expressed feeling nervous about surprising fans and ultimately decided to hide behind a curtain and listen to comments as people left the theater. 

    "Somebody at the studio said, 'Wouldn't it be great if on opening weekend, you went to a theater to surprise the audience at the end?'" Garner told DeGeneres.

    The actress went on to say that she "wasn't really thinking" and showed up to the theater in sweats after putting her children to bed. 

    "I went and as I got there, I realized, I don't really have a plan for this," she added. "I don't know what I'm going to do, but I can't actually face an audience."

    Garner said that as she approached the theater, fans were exiting, so she quickly "hid in the corner like a grown-up."

    "I could hear these people talking about me as they walked by," the 46-year-old said. Garner added that she wanted somebody to be there to warn people to be kind about their remarks, since she's "fragile." But according to the actress, the feedback she overheard was positive. 

    Watch the video below (Garner talks about going to the theater at 1:26).

    sophie turner maisie williams

    "Game of Thrones" stars Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams play sisters on the HBO show and are best friends in real life.

    During New York Comic Con on Saturday, Turner, 22, explained that she and Williams, 21, have sleepovers whenever they're in the same place and revealed what they'd do during the evenings, which included getting high and sitting in a bath.

    "We're kind of like loners on Game of Thrones,' just because the past few seasons Maisie and I have sleepovers every night when we're shooting or every night whenever both of us are in town," she said. "We just used to sit there and eat and watch stupid videos and smoke weed."

    She added: "I don't know if my publicist will kill me for saying this. We'd get high and then we'd sit in the bath together and we'd rub makeup brushes on our faces. It's fun."

    The two friends met while auditioning for the roles of Sansa and Arya Stark and instantly bonded. Now, they have matching tattoos and Williams will be part of Turner's bridal party for her marriage to Joe Jonas.

    "Game of Thrones" returns for its eighth and final season in 2019.

    jughead betty riverdale

    • "Riverdale" star Lili Reinhart requested that Betty Cooper stop transforming into "dark Betty" on the series' next season. 
    • The actress told Teen Vogue that it "became a mockery of itself." 
    • Her dark persona wears a black wig and lingerie. 

    "Riverdale" star Lili Reinhart is done with "dark Betty." 

    In an interview with Teen Vogue, the 22-year-old actress said she made a request to stop transforming Betty Cooper into her dark persona. 

    "I think it kind of became a mockery of itself," she said. "It was supposed to be this dark side of her that she wasn't able to express otherwise, and it just became this weird sexual thing that people didn't really understand."

    Betty wears a black wig and lingerie to transform in her dark alter ego and was introduced for the first time on season one when Veronica and Betty confronted Chuck about his misogynistic behavior. "Dark Betty" ended up handcuffing Chuck to a hot tub rail and pushing his head under the water with her high heel. 

    On season two, she donned the wig and lingerie when she briefly became a webcam girl, as well as when she and Jughead hook up at Veronica's family lake house. 

    During the "Riverdale" panel at New York Comic Con Sunday, Reinhart said that she now considers "dark Betty" as "badass, rather than when she's wearing a wig."    

    Reinhart has spoken about her dislike of the wig before but mostly because it was uncomfortable to wear.

    "I hate that wig, I hate it. It's just uncomfortable," Reinhart she told People magazine at the 2018 PaleyFest in Los Angeles. "To be honest I never want to wear that wig again."

    She told People, "I think Dark Betty is more a representation of a young girl figuring out her sexuality ... It's more just a girl's outlet into figuring out who she is and dealing with the stress of her everyday life."

    "Riverdale" returns Wednesday at 8 p.m. on The CW.

    • Cardi B performed her single, "I Like It," with Bad Bunny and J Balvin during the Tuesday broadcast of the American Music Awards from Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater on ABC.
    • The performance provided viewers with a lot of dynamic elements.
    • "Saturday Night Live" star Taran Killam's expression while watching the performance became the ideal image of how viewers felt.

    Cardi B performed during Tuesday's broadcast of the "American Music Awards" from Los Angeles' and left quite the impression on "Saturday Night Live" star Taran Killam.

    The New York-raised rapper hit the stage with her newest single, "I Like It," alongside Bad Bunny (who was wheeled out in a shopping cart) and J Balvin.

    Decked out in Mardi Gras colors, Cardi B pulled out all the stops. Fans loved when she pulled off her skirt to proudly reveal her fit body after giving birth to her daughter, Kulture Kiari Cephus, in July. At another point, she rode past us on a bicycle, and she also showed off her flexibility by pulling her leg up to her head.

    Killam's face became the perfect expression for the performance.

    Cardi B tied with Drake for the top-nominated AMA artist this year with a total of eight nominations, including New Artist of the Year. Currently, she had already nabbed the award for rap/hip hop artist.

    taylor swift AMAs 2018

    • Taylor Swift became the most decorated female artist in the history of the American Music Awards with her wins on Tuesday at Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater.
    • While accepting the award for artist of the year, Swift once again urged fans to vote during the upcoming midterm elections. 
    • "I just wanted to make a mention of the fact that this award and every single award given out tonight were voted on by the people," the singer said. "And you know what else is voted on by the people? It's the midterm elections on November 6. Get on and vote."

     

    Taylor Swift made history at the 2018 American Music Awards on Tuesday, and she took a moment to encourage fans to exercise their right to vote.

    The singer racked up wins for favorite pop/rock album for "reputation," tour of the year, and artist of the year. Her awards also led her to become the most decorated female artist at the AMAs, with 22 trophies. As of now, the show has yet to announce whether she won a 23rd in the favorite female artist - pop/rock category. Whitney Houston previously held the record with 21.

    Upon receiving the biggest honor of the night and thanking fans for their support, Swift — who recently broke her silence and endorsed Democrats from Tennessee — urged viewers to get involved in politics.

    "I just wanted to make a mention of the fact that this award and every single award given out tonight were voted on by the people," the 28-year-old said at Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater. "And you know what else is voted on by the people? It's the midterm elections on November 6. Get on and vote. I love you guys."

    Recently, Swift took to Instagram with a lengthy message about her political views. In her photo caption, she admitted that she has been "reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now."

    The singer added: "I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country."

    Swift went on to say that she will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives, and encouraged followers to register to vote. 
    "Please, please educate yourself on the candidates running in your state and vote based on who most closely represents your values," the "Bad Blood" singer added. "For a lot of us, we may never find a candidate or party with whom we agree 100% on every issue, but we have to vote anyway."

    The Crown Netflix

    Since Netflix's "The Crown" premiered in 2016, the show has gone on to win a slew of awards including two Golden Globes and eight Emmys. Anglophiles, historical drama fans, and casual TV watchers alike binged the two seasons of the show, which focuses on the life of Queen Elizabeth II.

    Although the newest episodes of "The Crown" aren't set to drop until 2019, we already know Olivia Coleman will replace Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II, and Tobias Menzies will replace Matt Smith as Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. The latest season of the show will focus on the major events in the royal family's life from 1963 to 1977.

    So, while we wait for 2019, here are a few fun facts about "The Crown" to tide you over.

    The real queen is reportedly a fan of the show.

    An unnamed senior royal source told the Daily Express in 2017 that Queen Elizabeth II "really likes" watching "The Crown." Earlier this year, an unnamed palace insider told In Touch that the Netflix original makes the queen "feel nostalgic" and she's "intrigued by how the series ... portrays her."



    "The Crown" is the most expensive series ever made.

    Production on the first two seasons of the popular Netflix show cost $130 million, making it the most expensive series ever made. Needless to say, if you want to make a show about royalty, you'll need the budget to pay for fabulous costumes, a talented cast, and lavish filming locations.



    The creator of the show had previously worked on royalty-inspired productions.

    "The Crown" isn't Peter Morgan's first royal production. In fact, Morgan was the writer and producer of the award-winning film "The Queen," starring Helen Mirren. He also wrote a play titled "The Audience" about Queen Elizabeth II.

    dwts judges

    It's a pretty big deal to earn the first perfect score of the season on "Dancing with the Stars."Depending on the number of judges, it could be a 30 or 40, but what we do know for sure is that it's quite impressive.

    Here are all of the stars who were the first on their season to earn a perfect score. 

    Kelly Monaco impressed judges in season one.

    The season's eventual winner Kelly Monaco, and her partner Alec Mazzo, finally captured that elusive perfect score during their finale freestyle to JLo's "Let's Get Loud."



    The judges thought Stacy Keibler did a phenomenal samba in season two.

    Week five was very good to former wrestler Stacy Keibler and her pro partner Tony Dovolani after they delivered a flawless samba. However, it was not enough to topple Drew Lachey who went on to win with Cheryl Burke.



    Mario Lopez earned the first perfect score in season three.

    "Saved by the Bell" star and "Extra" host Mario Lopez broke through with the first perfect score of season three after a scintillating tango with his partner, Karina Smirnoff.

    alec baldwin trump saturday night live

    • Alec Baldwin said African-Americans like him more since he began playing President Trump on "Saturday Night Live."
    • "Ever since I played Trump, black people love me," he told The Hollywood Reporter. "They love me. Everywhere I go, black people go crazy."
    • Critics say the comment resembles something Trump himself would say.
    • Baldwin is seeking to become more prominent in politics himself, and is supporting several candidates in the midterm elections.

    Alec Baldwin said that African-Americans like him more because of his parody of President Trump on NBC's "Saturday Night Live."

    "Ever since I played Trump, black people love me,"he told The Hollywood Reporter. "They love me. Everywhere I go, black people go crazy."

    Baldwin insisted he didn't want to generalize among all African-Americans, but said a lot of them are afraid of Trump.

    "I think it's because they're most afraid of Trump," he said. "I'm not going to paint every African-American person with the same brush, but a significant number of them are sitting there going, 'This is going to be bad for black folks.'"

    Baldwin's portrait of Trump on "Saturday Night Live" is hardly flattering, and he and the president have gotten into testy exchanges about his portrayal.

    But critics of his comments say they sound like something out of Trump's mouth.

    Baldwin is now seeking to become a more prominent political force, backing several Democratic candidates in the 2018 midterm elections.

    He's supporting Perry Gershon, who's running in a New York district where Baldwin keeps a second home, in the Hamptons. And he's backing Liuba Grechen Shirley, who's challenging the longtime incumbent representative Peter King, in an area of Long Island where Baldwin grew up.

    It's not clear how much Baldwin is supporting their campaigns financially, but The Hollywood Reporter published the results of a poll with Morning Consult this morning that shows only 25% of voters say they care about celebrity political opinions.

    archie veronica riverdale

    "Riverdale" is one of the most popular TV shows currently on TV and its cast is now one of the most recognizable. But for some of the actors, this fame is new.

    While some of the parents, played by actors including Luke Perry and Mädchen Amick, had broken out in the 90s, most of the young actors hadn't been on many shows, with the exception of Cole Sprouse. For Camila Mendes, playing Veronica on the show was her very first role. 

    Before the series returns for its third season, here's a look at what the cast was doing before they were cast on the show. 

    Watch "Riverdale" Wednesday at 8 p.m. on The CW. 

    Six years before playing Betty Cooper on "Riverdale," Lili Reinhart made her TV debut on an episode of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit."

    Reinhart had a few movie roles after that including "The Kings of Summer" and acted alongside Timothée Chalamet in 2016's "Miss Stevens." Her next movie, "Galveston," is set for release Friday, October 19. 



    KJ Apa, 21, landed his first TV role in 2013 with a part on the New Zealand soap opera "Shortland Street."

    The actor was cast in his first movie, "A Dog's Purpose," in 2015, but he broke out as Archie Andrews when "Riverdale" premiered in 2017. He's starring in "The Hate U Give," which opens nationwide Friday, October 19, and will star in Netflix's upcoming movie "The Last Summer." 



    Camila Mendes technically made her acting debut in an IKEA commercial, but playing Veronica Lodge on "Riverdale" is her first actual role.

    "I thought that, if anything, I would start off with a small role in a 'Law & Order' episode, as many actors do, and work my way up from there," she told Indonesia's Da Man. "I have absolutely no credits outside of 'Riverdale,' so I really lucked out with landing this role. I still can't believe it."

    She is in two upcoming movies: "The New Romantic," a Canadian rom-com, and "The Stand-In," with Noah Centineo.

    jughead betty veronica riverdale season two

    After five months, "Riverdale" is finally coming back to TV. 

    Season three of the hit CW show promises to introduce new characters, new villains, and new mysteries. But before diving into the drama's new episodes, here's a refresher on what happened at the end of last season.  

    "Riverdale" returns Wednesday at 8 p.m. on The CW.

    Archie is arrested for murder.

    Everything seems OK for Archie after he wins the school's presidential election. But after threatening to expose Hiram and reveal Tall Boy as the second Black Hood, Archie is the one who ends up in trouble. Hiram frames Archie for the murder of Cassidy Bullick, who was actually killed by one of Hiram's cronies, and has Archie arrested.

    Archie and his dad Fred, who lost the race for mayor against Hermione Lodge, were also fixing Archie's new car before the arrest. 



    Jughead asks Betty to be his Serpent Queen.

    After the trauma of discovering Betty's father, Hal, was the Black Hood and Jughead's near death at the hands of the Ghoulies, Jughead takes Betty to the Five Seasons for a romantic evening. There, he asks her to be his Serpent Queen, cementing their relationship and essentially asking if she'd join the Southside Serpents. 



    Veronica now owns the local hangout Pop's and plans to open a speakeasy.

    Veronica buys the bar her dad wants and asks to trade it for Pop's. He says that she would lose her place in Lodge Industries, as well as her allowance and credit cards, if she made the trade. She agrees to the terms and plans to open a speakeasy. She asks FP to manage it.
