Lili Reinhart stars in the upcoming Netflix film Look Both Ways. During recent conversations with media outlets about the film, Reinhart has also discussed the upcoming final season of Riverdalewhere she stars as Betty Cooper. In May, just two months after the hit CW series was renewed for a seventh season, it was reported that the season would be the last for the series. Regarding her emotions about the upcoming final season, the actress told Variety:
“There are a lot of feelings. Bittersweet is the word, because I obviously will miss this group of people that I’ve been through half of my 20s with. We’ll never all be together again working on the same thing, so I recognize that and I think we all do and we all are sad about that. It will be a very sad day when it actually wraps, but I do think the show has done so much for all of us and we’re all so ready to show the world what else we’ve got. On that aspect, knowing what’s on the other side is super exciting. I’m incredibly excited for the projects that I’ve been developing with my production company over the last year and a half that we’ll be ready to shoot when Riverdale ends next summer. But going into this final season, I think we’re all like, ‘This is our last hurrah, let’s really try to celebrate each other and spend time with each other because we won’t get this again.’”
Riverdale is based on characters from the popular Archie Comics, which gained popularity in the 1940s. The series presents a more sinister look at the characters who live in the titular town and includes subplots with murder, drug use, and sex. The series was developed for television by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin) and stars KJ Apa as Archie Andrews, Reinhart as Betty Cooper, Camila Mendes as Veronica Lodge, and Cole Sprouse as Jughead Jones, the series narrator.
Reinhart’s character was last seen working as an FBI agent and in a relationship with Archie. When asked what she envisions for Betty’s future, the actress told ET:
“I would obviously like to see a happy ending for Betty, knowing that she will be OK — an optimistic, lighthearted note. I don’t know who she’s gonna end up with or where, how, why, when — I know nothing about the final season — but I just hope that she’s happy, and you have an idea that things are gonna settle down for her in the best way.”
The Riverdale cast is currently on hiatus before beginning filming for their final season.
