Madelaine Petsch & KJ Apa Ponder If Cheryl & Archie Are Actually Related on 'Riverdale'

Madelaine Petsch & KJ Apa Ponder If Cheryl & Archie Are Actually Related on 'Riverdale'

Since fans learned that Cheryl Blossom and Betty Cooper are cousins during the season one finale of Riverdale, there could be a chance that even more of the gang are related too.

So, when Glamour asked the resident redheads — Madelaine Petsch and KJ Apa — if their characters could be related on the show, it was sound.

While KJ wondered if they could be: “I’ve wondered that before”; Madelaine was over here shutting down that stereotype that all redheads are related.

“I personally think no. I know plenty of other redheads that I’m not related to personally, that I grew up with,” she told the mag.

Of the world’s population, less than 2% have red hair — Madelaine being one of those 140 million people, so it’s very unlikely that Cheryl and Archie are related.

“But you never know,” Madelaine added. “It is Riverdale. My whole theory now is it’s Riverdale. Anything can happen!”

KJ Apa & Madelaine Petsch Know Exactly Who Black Hood is on 'Riverdale'

The identity of Black Hood is the biggest mystery on Riverdale since Jason Blossom’s killer — and the stars actually already know who the person under the mask is.

When stars KJ Apa and Madelaine Petsch found out the identity of the masked killer, they both had very different reactions.

“I already knew. I guessed it,” KJ boasted a little to Glamour. “But everything is very…it’s hard to say.”

However, Madelaine was shocked at who it was.

“I didn’t guess it. When I read it, it shocked me, but you won’t have to wait much longer,” she promises. “A couple more episodes and the mystery will be revealed.”

Any more guesses on just who Black Hood is?

'Riverdale' Showrunner Talks About The Aftermath of Cheryl's Assault

'Riverdale' Showrunner Talks About The Aftermath of Cheryl's Assault

While Riverdale isn’t set in a particular era, the show took on a timely subject in sexual assault.

Showrunner Roberto Aguire Sacasa opened up to Variety about the storyline and how the show is going to handle the consequences for Nick St. Clair and touch on Cheryl’s state of mind.

“No one loves these characters more than I do — no one treasures them more than I do. So I think we try to handle things with care, but they are teenagers, and teenagers do bad things,” Roberto explained on why they chose to take on the touchy subject manner.

“We try to not do it for shock and salacious reasons,” he adds. “We try to make sure it comes out of an emotionally true place for the character, that it’s earned, and that we follow through on all of these things.”

For Cheryl and Nick, this won’t just be a one and done episode, it’s going to go on for the whole season.

“We thought, ‘Wow, this is actually a huge, deep story that can continue for not just Cheryl but Veronica, their parents, and Archie.’ So far, it’s something we’ve been tracking through the rest of the season.”

Riverdale airs Wednesdays on The CW.

Madelaine Petsch Shares Important PSA Following 'Riverdale's Rape Scene

Madelaine Petsch Shares Important PSA Following 'Riverdale's Rape Scene

Riverdale took on the heavy topic of rape and consent this week on the show.

Nick St. Clair almost date raped Cheryl Blossom in last night’s episode before Veronica, Josie, Valerie and Melody shut that down and beat him up — and it only fired Madelaine Petsch to bring even more light to these issues with a PSA.

“[When I was] reading it, I felt like it was just another thing for Cheryl to deal with, and this is a huge thing,” Madelaine stresses to ET. “It makes sense for us to be bringing these [issues] to light and I think it’s very rare for TV shows to be doing that — especially ones that are more geared towards younger fans.”

She adds, “I think it’s important to kind of let them let [Riverdale's young audience] know what’s going on in the world and all that kinds of stuff, but at the same time, it’s just hard.
