Molly Ringwald is joining the CW’s subversive take on Archie Comics, Riverdale in a recurring role.
Ringwald is set to Mary Andrews mother to one carrot topped Archie. Mary left Riverdale two years ago to follow her dreams, but blows back into town in her family’s hour of need. She not only reconnects with Archie and her husband, Fred (Luke Perry), but also her former high school friends Hermione and Alice. Her reappearance coincides with the Homecoming Dance.
The series stars K.J. Apa as Archie, Camila Mendes as Veronica, Lili Reinhart as Betty, Cole Sprouse as Jughead, and Madelaine Petsch and Ashleigh Murray as Cheryl and Josie, respectively.
