Could Kevin Keller and Archie Be the Next “Riverdale” Gay Romance?

KJ Apa is down.

KJ Apa, who plays Archie on Riverdale, has been making us thirsty with his red-hot shirtless workouts, but on the show he is usually caught between Betty (Lili Rinehart) and Veronica (Camila Mendes), but now another classmate might be catching his eye—Riverdale High’s resident gay, Kevin Keller (Casey Cott).

During a panel at the Oz Comic Con in Melbourne, Apa was asked what he thought of fans shipping Archie and Kevin, and the actor responded: “Love it, let’s go.”

Say wha?

If Archie and Kevin start dating maybe Kevin can finally stop cruising Fox Forest or using GrindEM (Riverdale’s version of Grindr), but what would Moose think about this since he locked lips with Kevin at the end of last season.

This isn’t the first time that fans have shipped a same-sex couple on Riverdale. When Toni Topaz (Vanessa Morgan) joined the series, she was revealed to be bisexual, and fans instantly started a campaign to have her and Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch) become an item—which seems to have worked.

Who knows what Riverdale has in store for Season 3 (or what witchery we will see in the Netflix companion series, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), but hopefully Archie and Kevin can get a little closer—maybe another wrestling match?

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
