Chris O’Shea has joined the cast of Riverdale in a major recurring role, according to a recent report from Deadline.
O’Shea will play the role of Percival Perkins, a new resident of the town of Riverdale.
Based on the characters from Archie Comics, Riverdale hails from Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios, in association with Berlanti Productions, with executive producers Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Jon Goldwater.
According to the report, Percival is a “manipulative, powerful, and increasingly dangerous” person that comes into conflict with many of the starring characters of the show, especially Archie. O’Shea’s character will be introduced in the upcoming sixth season of the show, which will pick up right from the previous season ended.
