Riverdale’s latest guest stars are keeping these roles all in the family.
The often talked-about but yet unseen Mrs. Gladys Jones, and her precocious daughter Jellybean, will make their first onscreen debut on Riverdale Season 3 Episode 8. Both roles are played by Gina Gershon and Trinity Likins, respectively.
Ever since the early days of Riverdale Season 1 Episode 4, we knew that Gladys left town with Jellybean for Toledo, Ohio. They packed up their life, which left Jughead homeless since he didn’t want to live with his Southside Serpent father. (Oh how the times have changed!)
Well, the absence will now be a thing of the past.
Based on the preview photos for Riverdale Season 3’s Midseason Finale, Jughead is reuniting with the other half of his family. Will their dynamic feel like old times or will there be family drama?
Check out the preview photos below from “Chapter Forty-Three: Outbreak,” which airs Wednesday, December 12 on The CW.
Don’t forget, you can watch Riverdale online via TV Fanatic to get caught up on all the drama.
Jughead’s mysterious and unseen mother will finally make her first appearance: Gina Gershon will play the role of former Southside Serpent, Gladys Jones.
Jughead’s little sister, Jellybean Jones (played by guest star Trinity Likins), has toughened up since her time away from her brother.
Jughead’s mother has had to find work in Toledo to start her new life. It seems that she’s taken a job as a welder and mechanic.
