The sheriff’s son is back and better than ever!

Casey Cott, aka Kevin Keller, opened up in a recent interview about Riverdale‘s return and what’s in store for his character this season.

Kevin’s best friendship with Betty was one of the bests parts of the show and Casey talks about how that becomes a storyline now that Kevin has become a series regular!

“I think while Kevin has been such a rock for Betty, she hasn’t really been the rock for Kevin that he needed. It’s interesting to explore maybe Kevin finally addressing that with Betty and standing up for himself a little bit in season two. Sometimes, I think it’s important that he stands up for himself. When it comes to Betty, there’s a role shift that’s a great way of Kevin finally letting her know that she left him hanging a little bit.”

He also talked about his favorite part of playing this role saying:

“Kevin is such a joy. He attempts to spread joy to everyone around him. I think there’s something so contagious about that kind of spirit and that kind of laughter. He’s just such a bright little light.”
