Every Riverdale Main Character’s Ending In Case You Dumped The Show a Long Time Ago
After all those years of Archie, Betty, Veronica, and Jughead pairing up, they ended up in a foursome.
If you were once a devoted fan of the hit TV series inspired by the beloved Archie Comics, but somehow ended up drifting away from the show, you might be wondering what happened to the characters' lives. Well, we've got you covered, and here's how the story ended for every major character.
Archie became a talented poet and, after traveling around the country, worked as a professional in the construction industry. He moved to Modesto, California, got married, continued working in construction, and remained an amateur poet, never looking back to Riverdale, and was buried next to his father.
Jughead chose to focus his energies on comic books rather than novels, creating the wildly successful Madhouse Magazine. He found closure in his romance with Tabitha and died at the age of 84, second to last of the group, just before Betty. Despite his creative success, he remained unmarried — a decision he always regretted.
Betty succeeded in writing and activism, but she never married and instead adopted a daughter named Carla. As the last surviving member of her gang, she died at the age of 86 and joined her friends in the afterlife, staying forever 17 and drinking milkshakes at Pop's.
After graduating from college, Veronica returned to Los Angeles and secured a position with one of the studio executives. She steadily rose through the ranks and eventually became a prominent producer of iconic films, earning two Academy Award statuettes and a final resting place in the prestigious Hollywood Forever Cemetery.
Cheryl Blossom and Toni Topaz
While Cheryl went on to a successful career as a painter, exhibiting her work in galleries throughout the United States and Europe, Toni, known for her activism and leadership, continued her artistic journey by Cheryl's side.
Choni moved out West, started a family, and named their son Dale in honor of their beloved hometown of Riverdale.
Kevin Keller and Clay Walker
After Kevin met his soul mate, Clay Walker, at Riverdale High School in the 1950s, they eventually moved to Harlem, where Clay studied literature at Columbia University and Kevin studied writing for the musical theater at NYU.
Kevin had a successful career in the theater, while Clay became a professor at Columbia. Kevin died at the age of 82, and Clay died just a few weeks later.
