What are your thoughts on asexual representation in Jughead?
If you haven’t heard anything about this, I’ll provide a little bit of context. As of early 2016, Jughead is explicitly asexual in the rebooted continuity of Archie Comics. This has reappeared in the news because The CW is running the TV series Riverdale based on Archie Comics, and the premiere is on January 26th–this Thursday. The actor playing Jughead in Riverdale, Cole Sprouse, says he unsuccessfully fought for Jughead to be asexual. On the other hand, the producer of Riverdale suggested the possibility that Jughead might be asexual later in the series.
