Riverdale producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa got together with TV Line recently to preview the duo’s alterations, even though Jughead actor Cole Sprouse apparently wasn’t keen on getting rid of his character’s signature beanie.
Explaining how he suggested a new type of hat for the time jump, Roberto revealed that Cole came back with: “What about if Jughead has glasses and a goatee?”, to which the series boss replied: “OK, let’s go for it!”
But that’s not all, as of course there was the small matter of Betty’s ponytail to consider.
“I don’t know how many conversations I’ve had with Lili [Reinhart] over the years where she has begged me not to have Betty in a ponytail, which is so iconic from the comic books,” he added.
“When we did the time jump, actually, Lili said, ‘By the way, we don’t have to be completely done with the ponytail. We can come up with a looser version of it.'”
Meanwhile, KJ Apa’s character Archie Andrews will also have shorter hair in the upcoming episodes.
