It’s not all doom and gloom in Riverdale.

Sure, Fred Andrews (Luke Perry) remains on the brink of death when the second season of the CW drama begins, but the new teaser above offers a few bright spots for some of Riverdale’s finest. Veronica (Camila Mendes) appears to walk down the aisle around the 21-second mark (and gets a wink from Molly Ringwald’s Mary Andrews), Betty (Lili Reinhart) and Jughead (Cole Sprouse) lock lips in the rain, and even Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) gets a chance to flaunt her latest look — albeit in the middle of a hospital.

That said, these River Vixens would do well to brace themselves now that Hiram Lodge (new cast member Mark Consuelos) has arrived in town. Look out for Veronica’s father around the 20-second mark, sitting sternly at the head of a dinner table with a glass of wine. We’re guessing he’s more thirsty for vengeance than for a hearty red.

Riverdale returns Wednesday, Oct. 11, at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
