Former One Tree Hill star Chad Michael Murray is returning to The CW as part of the cast of Riverdale in a recurring role this season.
Murray will play the oft-mentioned Edgar Evernever, leader of the cult-like Farm, which are set to play a big part in the remainder of Season 3.
The official description of Evernever 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?”
This casting is pretty on point for Riverdale, which has often cast actors in the roles of adults who became famous for their iconic teen roles, such as Luke Perry, Molly Ringwald, Mädchen Amick, and Skeet Ulrich.
So, at least now we have a face to put to the name, but what this news really says is that the show is only just filming The Farm stuff, meaning we’ve probably got a long way to go before the scenes air – which is disappointing, as I’m already more than ready for this storyline to be over.
