Marisol Nichols, who stars as Hermione Lodge in CW’s newest hit drama Riverdale, grew up reading the Archie comics that the show is based off of. Nichols was thrilled when she first heard about the writer’s idea to pursue a dark, mysterious twist on the comics; she hopes to continue exploring similar plotlines in upcoming seasons.
Since networks such as CBS and CW are known for creating crossover plotlines across different shoes, Nichols hopes that Riverdale will be able to experience one as well. “I want to do some supernatural like kicking butt super hero stuff,” she said excitedly.
Nichols also went on to say that she wouldn’t mind being casted as a villain if a supernatural crossover were to ever occur. “I recently did one on Teen Wolf,” she explained. “I was like, ‘Oh I like this. This is the first one I’ve ever done.’ It was really fun so I’m alright with that.”
Archie and the gang will return for another season filled with drama, mystery, and thrill this upcoming fall.
