The cast of Riverdale revealed quite a few interesting tidbits about the upcoming season four when they attended San Diego Comic-Con, including a brief rundown on the state of Jughead and Betty's relationship. While the season three finale saw Jughead missing in action in the flash-forward, the new season will also see him transfer schools. Yes, that means the core four won't be classmates anymore. Despite not being together 24/7, it seems like you shouldn't worry too much about Bughead's romance.
"I think they are going strong," Cole Sprouse told Entertainment Tonight, adding, "Jughead goes to prep school in this season. He's only back in Riverdale on the weekends." Even though Lili Reinhart suggested the "distance will probably cause some stress," Sprouse is pretty sure it will only make them stronger.
"I think that is going to inevitably put stress on the relationship between Betty and Jughead," Sprouse added. "I think it might be a little bit tense. They might fall, turn away from each other, only to come back together way stronger. I think they're gonna be really good."
While their characters are growing even closer together on the show, it was recently announced that Sprouse and Reinhart have ended their relationship after almost two years. "At the end of the day, their personalities are very different and their lifestyles often clashed," a source told People about the reason behind their split. "Things have felt super heavy in the relationship for a while, and it got to be too much." Even so, it seems like they are on good terms now. "They're both very professional though and trying to be as amicable and friendly as possible," the source added.
Get ready for even more Bughead scenes when Riverdale season four returns on Oct. 9.
