Riverdale is full of mystery and darkness, and it’s only going to get more intense next season. While there are bound to be plenty of surprises in store as several fresh faces come to town, there are two characters in particular who we are all dying to meet: Jughead’s mom (whose name is Gladys in the comic books) and his sister, Jellybean. During Comic-Con, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa teased that we could meet the mother-daughter duo during the second half of the season. Of course, they’re taking their sweet time with casting to make sure they find the perfect fit.
While we’re not sure how many young actresses could pull off a 10-year-old who listens to Pink Floyd on vinyl, fans already have the perfect choice for Jughead’s mom: Neve Campbell. Not only does she have the Jones family’s jet-black hair, but it would also make for one epic Scream reunion with Skeet Ulrich (FP Jones). During the first movie in the horror franchise, the two played star-crossed love interests, which the series has paralleled multiple times with Jughead and Betty’s relationship. Like father like son, I guess. And seeing that most of the Riverdale parents are iconic ’90s stars – Luke Perry (Fred Andrews) was on Beverly Hills, 90210 and Mädchen Amick (Alice Cooper) was on Twin Peaks – it only seems fitting that Jughead’s mom would follow suit.

Seriously, can you imagine how much chemistry these two would have playing Mr. and Mrs. Jones?
