Riverdale: Season 2 Will Have 22 Episodes, Toni Topaz Will Be First Bisexual Character, And Sabrina Is Coming

Aaron Haaland, reporting for Bleeding Cool from the Riverdale panel in San Diego Comic-Con's Ballroom 20, is blowing our minds with some Riverdale factoids for the masses:

Riverdale Season 2 will be 22 episodes long, and they'll use the extra time to balance crime and relationships, promising more Kevin Keller and more Josie and the Pussycats.

Cole Sprouse called his character Jughead "a poor special snowflake" and said that will put him in danger at Southside High. A new character for the show straight from the comics, Toni Topaz, will be Jughead's guide to Southside High and the Serpents. She was described as a female Jughead because of their shared interests, and will be the show's first explicitly stated bisexual character.

Josie, of the Pussycats, will have Reggie as a love interest.

A question was asked about possible supernatural elements coming to the show, and showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa answered that Sabrina is coming, but didn't confirm whether or not it would be in season 2.

Can we start going around everywhere saying "Sabrina is coming" in a really annoying Game of Thrones-style voice? I think we can.
