Yet another reason to be excited for the second season…
Riverdale’s Kevin Kellar had a few fellas in the first season of the hit teen series – most notably the mysterious Joaquin who eventually left town before the first run concluded.
But it’s looking like Kevin’s dry spell won’t last long, as actor Casey Cott hints that his character gets much more interest in the upcoming new episodes.
“I think what’s cool about Kevin in season two is we kind of explore many different kinds of love interests, the same way that high schoolers do,” Casey told Teen Vogue.
“Some are people you just meet, but are quick; sometimes you find a long-lasting relationship.
“We kind of delved into a few different kinds of relationships in Season 2. I think a bigger, more long-term relationship is coming for Kevin very soon.”
As for the great reaction to Kevin from fans, Casey puts it down to the great team behind Riverdale.
“I think all the credits for our show, at the end of the day, goes completely to our writers and to our producers, and to our directors,” he said.
“As actors, our art form is fulfilling their vision for the show. Roberto [Aguirre-Sacasa, Riverdale’s creator] has just written Kevin to be such a wonderful light, as I said earlier, and such a phenomenal, three-dimensional character. Playing him is such a joy.”
Riverdale will return to our screens on 11 October, with Archie, Jughead, Betty and Veronica all back for more drama.
