New Riverdale Star Sarah Desjardins Teases Trouble Ahead For Bughead On Season 4
There’s a new girl on Riverdale and she might be here to stir up some trouble. Sarah Desjardins, who also stars on the YouTube series Impulse, is the new girl on the block on season four of the hit CW show and she gets to work nice and closely with our guy Cole Sprouse. We spoke to the actress about what it was like joining the tight-knit cast for their latest season and whether or not her character will throw some problems in the mix for our beloved Bughead.
We haven’t met Sarah’s character on Riverdale just yet, but we know her name is Donna (thanks to this tweet) and that she’s a student at Jughead’s new high school, Stonewall Prep. Catch her in the season trailer at 1.20. Fans of Riverdale will know that the cast and crew are super close — Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse are in love IRL, and the stars are all best friends and hang out off-set all the time. When asked what it was like joining such a tight crew, Sarah told us: “It’s such a well-established show, everybody watches it, everybody knows it, so it’s interesting to get to go to a set like that and be like, ‘Hi, I’m Sarah, please be my friend,’ but they’re all so great.”
“I have worked a lot with Cole and he’s lovely,” she continued. “I’ve met everybody and everybody is really great. It’s important to feel comfortable on a set like that and they’re so nice to me and I feel really grateful to be apart of it. I can’t wait for everyone to see the season.”
Jughead and Lili Reinhart’s character Betty will face another bump in the road this season when they attend different schools — Betty still at Riverdale High and Jughead at Stonewall Prep. It’s okay though, Sarah’s character Donna will be there to keep him company. Although she couldn’t give too much away about the fate of Bughead, when we asked whether or not her character would cause a divide between pop culture’s favorite couple, Sarah laughed and said: “I don’t know, I guess you’re just going to have to watch season four.” That’s a confirmation if we’ve ever heard one.
Don’t panic, Riverdale fans. Remember when everyone thought Toni was going to steal Jughead, but she actually had her eyes on Cheryl? Episode two of Riverdale, season four airs on The CW tonight and we can hardly wait. If you want to see more of Sarah, she also stars on YouTube’s Impulse, which is currently airing on the streaming service.
