Riverdale season 3 to introduce Jughead's mother and sister
Gina Gershon to play Jughead's mother, Gladys Jones, while Trinity Likins to play his sister, Jellybean "JB" Jones
The CW's immensely popular series, 'Riverdale's' season 2 has left fans wondering about Archie and the gang like never before. Archie has been framed for a murder and the speculations are Jughead Jones and Betty Cooper will join forces to solve this case and help their friend. Another, big news from this season is that we will see Jughead's mother and sister.
Gina Gershon will be seen playing the role of Jughead's mother, Gladys Jones, who is described as "a 'businesswoman' who runs the salvage yard (chop shop) that doubles as a Serpent compound, and the Serpents all snap to attention when she gives them an order" reported Screenrant. Jughead's sister will be played by Trinity Likins and her character is named Jellybean "JB" Jones, who is "Wise beyond her years" and "quite the little con artist herself".
Although not much has been revealed about the part the duo will play this season, Jughead might have to face some challenges in leading the Serpents in their presence. The mother-daughter duo might also play a part when it comes to Archie proving himself innocent. The two characters bring along a new set of mystery around them and as the new poster suggests "Every Mystery has a Darker Truth".
So, we will have to wait for the "Darker Truth" to unveil when their characters make a debut on the December 12 episode - which is the show's midseason finale. Considering how the midseason finale usually pans out, Gladys and JB might have a great influence in the second half of the season.
Season 3 of Riverdale premiers on October 12.
