THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS PHOTOS AND A WRITE UP FOR THE SEASON 3 PREMIERE OF THE CW HIT DRAMA "RIVERDALE" THAT IS TITLED "LABOR DAY". If you do not want to read or see any possible spoilers prior to the episode airing, Do not continue on with this article.
For the start of season 3 of the hit teen drama for The CW/ Netflix "Riverdale" the show finds most of the cast filming scenes for the show at the Vancouver Art Gallery earlier this month.
On a funny (and probably planned) fluke, the last time I was at this location for the show, there was an altercation between the shows star Cole Sprouse and a local busker, Babe Coal that made the entertainment media rounds. Well, she was back out there playing on both nights the show was filming inside..... but this time, the production sucked it up, and ignored her.
Much of the cast was on hand over the two days. Cole Sprouse, Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes and Madelaine Petsch joined K.J. Apa on set over the two days, along with a variety of other regular & recurring cast including Luke Perry, Skeet Ulrich, Madchen Amick, Robin Givens, Ashleigh Murray, Alvin Sanders, Casey Cott, Martin Cummins, Mark Consuelos, Jordan Connor and more.
There was very few chances to really see them around the set, as they stayed inside for most of the days. The only times they were seen outside was when they went for smoke breaks or for their lunch breaks. Since it was all interior, nothing is yet known about the filming of the scenes. What we do know is.... Penelope Ann Miller has been added to the cast in a role that she probably took on that day, since her role is as a District Attorney that is prosecuting Archie Andrews.
A few of the cast met with fans over the two days, but considering how many cast were there, the meetings were few & far between. Cole Sprouse, Skeet Ulrich, Mark Consuelos, Madchen Amick were among the more notable names to stop while I was around.
Riverdale season 3 premiere airs Wednesday October 10, 2018 on The CW or on Netflix the next day.
