Season 3 of Riverdale is set to take us further into the depths of Jughead’s background, as we’re officially set to be introduced to his mother, Gladys Jones, and sister, Jellybean “JB” Jones. Gina Gershon and Trinity Likins have been cast to play the respective roles, starting with the December 12th episode. The news broke early Sunday at the series’ New York Comic Con panel.
Per the official character descriptions, Gladys is “a ‘businesswoman’ who runs the salvage yard (chop shop) that doubles as a Serpent compound, and the Serpents all snap to attention when she gives them an order. A Serpent with a GED, she acts as Fagin to a crew of teenaged car parts thieves.” Meanwhile, Jellybean “is wise beyond her years, and her favorite bands are Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath. Jellybean lives with her biker mom in Toledo where they run scams to make ends meet. And like mother like daughter: Jellybean — who goes by JB now — is quite the little con artist herself.”
