According to Entertainment Weekly, The CW's Riverdale has cast Graham Phillips (The Good Wife, Secrets & Lies) as Archie Comics character Nick St. Clair, Veronica's ex-boyfriend from her days in New York City before the events of Season One.

Speaking to EW, series executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa teased that Nick St. Clair might not be as sweet as he'll appear from the get-go.

In addition to the announcement, Aguirre-Sacasa took to Twitter to share an on-set pic of KJ Apa (Archie), Veronica (Mendes), and Nick (Phillips) on the set of season 2.

According to Riverdale EP Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, "Nick is an old classmate of Veronica's from NY, and despite his parent-pleasing veneer, he is a wolf in sheep's clothing: a hard-partying Lothario with dark desires and an unchecked sense of privilege. Welcome to town, Nick St. Clair!" tweeted the showrunner.

Are Archie and Veronica over already? She's also been quite honest about the fact that she's seen moving to Riverdale as an opportunity to turn over a new leaf. They were sniffing around a mystery but it wasn't until the last few episodes when you felt like 'Oh my God, something really bad could happen.' Season 2, it's still noir and it's still crime, but it's much more like a suspense thriller and you feel like our characters are at risk in a much more visceral way.

Season 2 of Riverdale will begin airing on the network later this year, in October.
