Riverdale: Barchie Fans Will Be "Well Fed" in Season 7: Lili Reinhart

Riverdale star Lili Reinhart believes that Barchie fans "are going to be well fed" this season and discussed the nostalgia factor.

With Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa & The CW's Riverdale returning for its final run this week, viewers have already prepared themselves for the gang living new lives in the 1950s. But as series star Lili Reinhart shared with EW, the timey-wimey trip isn't the only nostalgia awaiting viewers – especially if you're stanning Betty (Reinhart) and Archie (KJ Apa), aka Barchie. "I see all the Barchie fans talking on Twitter and Instagram, and it's like, you guys are going to be well fed," Reinhart teased. "There's a lot of 'Barchie,' and it's been so fun to film with KJ [Apa] this last season. We just shot a scene yesterday, and he made me cry because of how good he was in it. The 'Barchie' of it all is definitely full circle. We shot a scene in front of Betty's house the other day. There's a lot of sweet, nostalgic moments throughout the last season." Now, here's a look at what's ahead with the first three episodes of the season.

Riverdale Season 7: A Look at What's Ahead

The seventh season of Riverdale goes where no season has dared to go before — the 1950s! Picking up where last season ended, Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse) finds himself trapped in the 1950s. He has no idea how he got there nor how to get back to the present. His friends are no help, as they are living seemingly authentic lives, similar to their classic Archie Comics counterparts, unaware that they've ever been anywhere but the 1950s.

Archie Andrews (KJ Apa) is the classic all-American teen, coming of age, getting into trouble, and learning life lessons; Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) is the girl next door, starting to question everything about her perfect life—including her controlling mother Alice (Madchen Amick); Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes) is a Hollywood starlet who moved to Riverdale under mysterious circumstances; Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch) is the Queen Bee with a withering wit and a secret longing; Toni Topaz (Vanessa Morgan) is an activist fighting for the Black students of recently integrated Riverdale High; Kevin Keller (Casey Cott) is a "square" crooner wrestling with his sexual identity; Reggie Mantle (Charles Melton) is a basketball star from farm country; and Fangs Fogarty (Drew Ray Tanner) is a greaser who's destined to be an Elvis-type star.

It isn't until Jughead is visited by Tabitha Tate (Erinn Westbrook) — Riverdale's Guardian Angel — that he learns the cosmic truth about their predicament. Will Jughead and the gang be able to return to the present? Or will our characters be trapped in the 1950's forever? And, if so…is that such a bad thing? Now, here's a look at the preview images for S07E01 "Chapter One Hundred Eighteen: Don't Worry Darling":

Elsewhere, Jughead (Cole Sprouse) takes aim at Pep Comics, and Toni (Vanessa Morgan) attempts to convince Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) to let Fangs (Drew Ray Tanner) perform at the sock hop.
