Hopefully, you've already seen our conversation with hot dad, Luke Perry aka Fred Andrews.

If you have, you know how much Perry enjoys his scenes with on-screen son, KJ Apa.

What Apa reveals during the interview you can watch below is the amount of screentime the two will share will be minimal during Riverdale Season 3.

That's because as we now know Archie is paying a big price for Hiram's misdeeds.

During that time, Archie will be forced to stand on his own two feet with nobody to lean on for comfort.

After taking so long to form relationships with people he can trust, it's a shame Archie will feel so alone.

But even though he'll be out of the line of site and his relationship with Veronica will be challenged, we know she's not giving up on him -- yet.

Mysteriously, Apa mentions Veronica will mention some other people while he's away, but he doesn't clarify who those people might be.

Apa also talks a lot about Archie's relationship with Fred, and how it parallels his relationship with his father.

Growing up in the spotlight isn't easy, but it seems the younger cast of Riverdale is growing into their own and finding their way through the fame.

Are you worried about Archie in juvie?

Riverdale Quotes

I’m sorry, Donna, but I’m the ultimate wild card. I am the daughter of The Black Hood. The nightmare from next door. I’m training with the FBI and I’m coming for you, you psycho b****! Not Joan, not Jonathan, not even Brett. Just you.


Kevin: Okay, Veronica, I’m obsessed with everything that just happened.
Veronica: Thank you! It helps to be off-book and in full costume.
Betty: Don’t be so modest, you are the literally embodiment of Chris. Never has a role been perfectly typecast.
Archie: Betty!
Veronica: What was that, Betty?
Betty: I mean think about it: Spoiled rich girl, check. Major daddy issues, check. Bad to the bone, trying to control everyone around her, including her boyfriend and best friend. Check, check, check.
