Sexy teens doing murders is the TV genre which, thankfully, will never go away and current du jour of said category is CW’s ‘Archie’ comics contemporisation, ‘Riverdale’.

With its second season not too far away, Riverdalians (all good fandoms need a collective name, so if this isn’t already it, you’re welcome) are frothing en masse ahead of the October return, and thankfully one Cole Sprouse has stepped up to the plate to alleviate the thirst.

The former Disney grommet who stars as ~wEiRd LoNeR~ Jughead Jones in the show has absolutely sprayed Instagram with some behind the scenes shots, taken by the aspiring photographer himself.

Hey look it’s Lili Reinhardt aka Betty Cooper looking like a freakin’ IRL angel:
