Riverdale Showrunner Posts #Choni Season 3 Preview Prompting Fan Debate
Our #Choni-loving hearts can’t take the cuteness in Roberto Aguire-Sacasa‘s most recent tweet! The Riverdale showrunner and executive producer posted a behind-the-scenes picture of Madelaine Petsch and Vanessa Morgan – who play Cheryl Blossom and Toni Topaz – and Choni fans absolutely lost their $h*!. You can check out the photo below:

Adorable, right? Almost immediately, however, the replies were full of requests asking for previews of Bughead (Betty Cooper and Jughead Jones, played by Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse) and Varchie (Veronica Lodge and Archie Andrews, played by Camila Mendes and KJ Apa). And although Bughead is one of the most popular ships on Riverdale and Varchie has some troubled waters up ahead on the show, Choni fans pointed out that Cheryl and Toni hardly get any screen time in comparison to the straight couples on the show.
Y’all have the whole show let us choni fans have a moment dang

people asking for bughead and varchie previews as if they won’t take up the whole fucking screen time when it airs

this is why everyone hates you,bughead stans. Bughead is literally the main ship of the show,get’s the most screentime yet you’re STILL not pleased. Let choni stans have at least some breadcrumbs without taking them away.

Not going to lie, Choni stans kind of have a point. After being promised “stuff better than just kisses” during the last few episodes of season two, the relationship between Cheryl Bombshell and her Serpent GF didn’t necessarily live up to the hype – or see the same progression Bughead and Varchie experienced. Let’s just hope that now that Vanessa’s a series regular for season three, Choni gets the screen time it deserves.
