And the cast bios suggest very good news for Bughead.
"Riverdale" Season 2 is putting Riverdale High students in the spotlight for a production of "Carrie: The Musical." The musical episode is scheduled to air Wednesday, April 18 on The CW, starring -- of course! -- ginger goddess Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch) as telekinetic teen Carrie.
The episode will feature 11 songs from the musical, which debuted on Broadway in 1988. "Future Tony winner" Kevin Keller (Casey Cott) is directing the Riverdale High production, with Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse) shooting a behind-the-scenes documentary.
Speaking of Jughead, his name comes up in the cast bios for the production.
As TVLine noted, Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) and Archie Andrews (KJ Apa) play golden couple Sue Snell and Tommy Ross, giving something for Barchie shippers, with Veronica as mean-girl Chris Hargensen.

But in the cast bios, Betty gives a shoutout to her "boyfriend," and it's definitely not Archie:
"Betty Cooper (Sue Snell) usually spends her time as Riverdale's foremost teen journalist, but between news stories, she is thrilled to be a part of Carrie: The Musical, performing alongside her Mother, Alice Cooper. Congratulations to her long-time best friend, director Kevin Keller, for realizing his vision, and much love to her boyfriend, Jughead Jones. #bugheadforever"
Entertainment Weekly posted all of the cast bios, and two -- Cheryl Blossom's and Toni Topaz's (Vanessa Morgan) -- have redacted information, blocking out who they thank. Each other? Yes, please! Guess that kind of intel is considered too spoilery to include before the episode airs in April. (But a "boyfriend" Bughead reference isn't spoilery?)
"Riverdale" airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on The CW.
