about jughead


Jughead Jones is a character from the Archie comics and the television series adaptation Riverdale, portrayed by Cole Sprouse. In the comics Jughead is loveable but lazy guy who loves food.

However, for the television series, Riverdale, the characters and plots have to be a little more fleshed out and they tend to be darker.

Jughead struggles with his identity, fighting against his legacy as a Southside Serpent, but eventually embracing it and expanding it to mean more than a gang life. He grows as a person and as a leader, and even falls in love in the process.

Jughead is an intelligent, caring individual who is consistently seeking the truth and to help his friends and family as needed.
