The long awaited second season of teen drama, “Riverdale” will be coming to screens of all sizes super soon. What do we already know about this year’s installment? Creators of the show say it’ll be in stark contrast to last season and that it’s going to be noticeably darker, packing on the intensity within each character’s’ storyline. In the trailer for the upcoming season, new mysteries are introduced and fans are eagerly waiting for them to be uncovered. Here is a list of mysteries from the trailer that we hope will be revealed this season:

Mystery #1. The first season ended on a cliff-hanger; Will Fred Andrews survive after the shooting at Pop's? The new trailer shows him hospitalized and in bad condition but we hope he is alive and ready to meet with Hiram Lodge who makes a return of his own.

Mystery #2. Speaking of Hiram Lodge, yes: He’s back in the new trailer. What could he be up to? Looking at his storyline from the first season, it’s safe to say he’s not much of a protagonist. If he can cause trouble while in prison, imagine what he’ll do now that he’s running free in Riverdale.

Mystery #3. Was Hiram Lodge the one behind the shooting at Pop’s? We already know that it wasn’t just a robbery so the question remains, who wanted Archie Andrew’s father dead? The trailer shows Jughead Jones doing his investigation and it seems as though the teen squad will all be taking part in solving the mystery.

Mystery #4. Where will Archie’s adventures lead him? We see a darker side to him in the trailer where he’s surrounded with blood everywhere which leads us to assume he must be up to something major. On the romance side, Archie is seen in a few shower scenes with Veronica who’s later shown in a wedding dress…oh boy, what could that mean?!

Mystery #5. Veronica is seen walking down the aisle in a wedding dress – could this be a dream? Archie’s mom is shown flashing a smile so it looks like he could be the one. All things considered, a wedding can’t possibly be left without murders or uncovered lies.

Mystery #6. Speaking of drama, what will happen with Jughead who was shown getting initiated into a notorious biker gang? Is he still with Betty? Obviously, no relationship is safe in Riverdale, and even they have problems. What we do know is that Jughead gets badly tormented and is overly anxious to find out the truth.

Mystery #7. Sabrina the Teenage Witch can make an appearance this season. The CW just announced that the character from Archie Comics will have her own show next year titled “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.” Some people think Sabrina might make her first appearance in “Riverdale” as the town seems to be the perfect setting for a story centered on the occult and witchcraft.
