Riverdale has cast its Edgar Evernever, with TV Line reporting that Chad Michael Murray (One Tree Hill, Dawson’s Creek) is set to portray the mysterious cult leader teased throughout the third season.
The official character description reads:
“As the enigmatic leader of the cult-like Farm, Edgar arrives in Riverdale to spread his teachings and heal the ravaged soul of this once wholesome town. Edgar is a charming, handsome guru, but is he hiding a more sinister agenda?”
Riverdale is currently on a short break, with its third season set to resume on The CW on February 27th. The show was recently renewed for a fourth season, while The CW has also ordered a pilot for a spinoff entitled Katy Keene, which will see Ashleigh Murray (Josie McCoy) switching from Riverdale should the project make it to series.
