Blackhood is finally behind bars, and now when one thinks that everything will eventually become fine, a new villain enters the town, known as the Gargoyle King. 

Though there is nothing much that is revealed about the mysterious creature, the only thing known till date is that he is a monster and also a part of a life-threatening game that the Riverdale kids are currently playing. 



 

In an interview with Us Weekly, the creator of both 'Riverdale' and Netflix's new forthcoming series 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina', Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa revealed that he is well aware that the villains for both shows look similar. 

If you have watched the trailer to Sabrina, you would have noticed a similar looking monster named The Dark Lord scares Sabrina and her friends and attacks them. But Roberto promises that the two villains are totally different. "The Dark Lord is the supernatural devil and the Gargoyle King is most probably a guy in a mask," he pointed out.

And when asked if viewers have already met the 'guy in a mask', he admitted, "Probably". Season three of 'Riverdale' still continues to be intense, especially with Archie (KJ Apa) in the juvenile detention center.

"We always have a noir element to the show and a crime element to the show and there’s a great tradition of noirs set in prison," the writer said. "We want to do our spin on that. It’s pretty violent, it’s pretty intense. It’s been fun seeing Archie trying to maintain his Archieness even in that setting."

Following Roberto's response, the 21-year-old actor agreed to his comments stating that the vibes inside aren't good. "He is fresh meat in this place, quite literally. He’s in survival mode. He’s doing everything he can in there to protect himself," KJ Apa said. "He is lucky in a way because he has people in there that he knows that he can work with but it’s definitely going to be rough."

'Riverdale' airs on The CW Wednesdays at 8 pm ET. Check your local listings for more information.
