New 'Riverdale' Season 2 Poster and Promo Hint at Foreboding War

The new poster features an ominous look at Pop's Diner, with only certain letters illuminating, spelling out the alarming word 'DIE' instead of 'DINER.'
The CW has released a new ominous poster for "Riverdale" ahead of the series' season 2 premiere. The upcoming sophomore season will definitely be yet another tough journey for Archie and friends as the new poster teases a foreboding threat to come to Riverdale.

With the show's signature misty picturesque in the background, the poster features an ominous look at Pop's Diner. However, only certain letters illuminate, spelling out the alarming word "DIE" instead of "DINER."

Pop's Diner is a cafe where Archie, Jughead, Betty and Veronica assemble to talk about the events happening in their city as well as the place where Fred was shot during an armed robbery in season 1 finale. Echoing the horror vibe portrayed in the poster, a new promo teases that Pop's Diner is a sort of battleground in the upcoming second season.

The new promo sees Archie approaching Sheriff Keller to ask him who shot his father. The tense is not only felt by Archie but also almost all of the characters, as Alice Cooper can be heard saying, "This is war." The intense promo concludes with Archie arriving at the front of Pop's Diner with a gun in one of his hands. Judging by the poster and promo, the place may be the setting of an epic showdown.

The sophomore season of the Archie Comics-based series will see the arrival of Veronica's villainous father, Hiram Lodge. The threat doesn't end with him as Veronica's ex-boyfriend Nick is also set to come to Riverdale.

Played by Graham Phillips, Nick "is an old classmate of Veronica's from New York, and despite his parent-pleasing veneer, he is a wolf in sheep's clothing: a hard-partying Lothario with dark desires and an unchecked sense of privilege." EP Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa teased that Nick's arrival would "threaten" Veronica's relationship with Archie, and might "even put some of our characters at risk."

"Riverdale" is slated to return for season 2 on October 11 at 8 P.M. on The CW.
