Molly Ringwald has scored a recurring guest role as Archie’s mother Mary Andrews on The CW’s “Riverdale”.
Based on the “Archie” comics, this subversive take explores the surrealism of small town life and the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath its wholesome façade.
Mary left Riverdale two years ago to follow her dreams, but blows back into town in her family’s hour of need to reconnect with Archie and her husband, Fred (Luke Perry), along with her former high school friends Hermione and Alice. Her reappearance coincides with the Homecoming Dance.
The series stars K.J. Apa as Archie, Camila Mendes as Veronica, Lili Reinhart as Betty, Cole Sprouse as Jughead, and Madelaine Petsch and Ashleigh Murray as Cheryl and Josie, respectively.
Ringwald will appear in the tenth and eleventh episode.
