Popular CW series Riverdale returns for its third season tomorrow (10 October) and with it comes some great representation.
Riverdale creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa posted a photo of a steamy same-sex kiss on Twitter, getting the vocal fanbase even more hyped for the show’s return.
So who’s the kiss between? None other than resident bi babes Cheryl Blossom and Toni Topaz.
Last year, Vanessa Morgan joined the cast as new character Toni Topaz. Early on, Aguirre-Sacasa confirmed Toni is bisexual. He also said the show would explore her sexuality.
Morgan then followed up by saying Toni would be getting a female love interest.
Fans immediately locked on to Toni and Cheryl, especially after actor Madelaine Petsch, who plays Cheryl, confirmed her redhead is interested in both men and women and identifies as bisexual.
Riverdale has had queer representation since its beginning, starting with Casey Cott’s Kevin Keller.
Sister show The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is also dedicated to representation — one of their warlocks is pansexual.
‘The only thing that matters’
Toni and Cheryl shippers are, naturally, going wild for this still.
Riverdale Season 3 premieres tomorrow on The CW.
