It’s just a romance.” He also revealed that KJ told him a secret “He told me a secret about himself that was so punishing.” The cast reflected on the recent retro-themed dream sequence. Cole said that it was “special” and that “putting on the costume was the best part.” When the cast was asked if they had read any Archie comics before the show, Cole spoke about how he hadn’t read them but knew the names of the characters due to how big the comics are in culture.

When asked if he would be singing as well on the show, Cole quickly dismissed the idea. “I survived a Disney career without having to sing, there’s no way I’m doing it here.” During the panel the cast was asked to guess their characters senior quotes. Jughead’s? “Hell is other people”, was Cole’s response. When asked who he’d love to have play Jughead’s mom, Cole said “Eva Green”. Betty or Veronica? Cole picks Betty!
