"Riverdale" showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is the first to admit fans haven't seen enough of Cheryl Blossom this season on the CW series. But worry not, that's all about the change in the weeks to come.
"Cheryl's been a little bit on the back burner," Aguirre-Sacasa told TooFab at a press Q&A in Los Angeles on Tuesday. "Partly because the story shifted from the Jason Blossom murder to the Black Hood and things like that."
The red-headed queen bee (played by Madelaine Petsch) roared onto the series as a central figure in Season One, which focused on the murder of her brother. When that storyline was laid to rest in the season finale, the Black Hood's killing spree took over and Blossom struggled for airtime.
"I can tell you that starting from next episode on -- I think and she thinks from what she's told me -- is gangbusters through the end of the season in a really really great way," promised Aguirre-Sacasa. "She's pushed into places she hasn't been before."
He also said fans can expect some major payoff when it comes to the character's fascination with rocker Josie McCoy.
"We're absolutely going to address the crush or obsession or however you want to describe it for Josie absolutely directly," Aguirre-Sacasa said. "We've pinned it at that she's going to start a relationship that is very much going to happen."
