Cole Sprouse Just Dropped a Big Hint About Bughead's Future on Riverdale Season 4

It's not all roses for Betty and Jughead next season. 😬

Season four of Riverdale doesn’t come out until October, but that doesn't keep fans from wanting answers and hints about what's to come in the new season. Over the weekend, members of the show's cast stopped by the San Diego Comic-Con convention to share glimpses of the upcoming season—including what will be happening with a few key relationships on the show. Namely, those of "Bughead" (that's Jughead and Betty) and "Varchie" (Archie and Veronica).

During the panel, KJ Apa (Archie), Camila Mendes (Veronica), Lili Reinhart (Betty), Cole Sprouse (Jughead), and Madelaine Petsch (Cheryl) shared an update about where all their on-screen relationships stand—and fair warning, stans of the couples: It doesn't look like it's smooth sailing ahead, especially with a new mystery unfolding this season, too.

It seems like Veronica and Archie will remain strong after a rocky time in season three: "Varchie is looking pretty solid, am I right, KJ?" Mendes asked Apa, who, according to Entertainment Tonight, replied, "Pretty solid. Very solid."

Betty and Jughead’s relationship will be tested due to distance, Sprouse shared, with some potential trouble in paradise ahead. Jughead won’t be attending Riverdale High School this season, after all—instead, he’ll be away at prep school for senior year.

“He's only back in Riverdale on the weekends,” Sprouse said at Comic-Con, according to ET. "I think that is going to inevitably put stress on the relationship between Betty and Jughead.”

Reinhart chimed in, adding that "distance will probably cause some stress," before Sprouse continued. “I think it might be a little bit tense," he said. "They might fall, turn away from each other, only to come back together way stronger. I think they're gonna be really good."

On the same note, Cheryl and Toni will also face a "rocky road," according to Petsch, because Cheryl is hiding a very big secret from her girlfriend. “[Cheryl] definitely needs some happiness, but it wouldn't be Cheryl Blossom if there's not a little chaos,” she said.

As far as Veronica's thing with Reggie Mantle, it might be over, but that doesn't mean he's totally out of her life. "There will definitely be a confrontation about them," Mendes said, per ET. "I think Reggie has some hurt feelings."

We can't wait to see how season four plays out already—in the meantime, here's everything we know about it (so far).
