‘Riverdale’: Nicholas Barasch & Karl Walcott to Recur in Season 7

The seventh and final season of Riverdale will be here before we know it, and as we get ready to welcome the gang to the 1950s, they will be joined by two new students at Riverdale High.

Deadline has exclusively reported that Nicholas Barasch and Karl Walcott are set to recur in the upcoming season of The CW series. Barasch will portray Cheryl and Jason’s supposed triplet, Julien. Like your typical Blossom, he is rich, entitled, preppy, athletic, and arrogant. He tries to get with Veronica and butts heads with his twin sister, Cheryl, and will be an antagonist for the Core Four. The only question that comes up, though, is, where’s Jason?

Barasch is most known for his stage credits, having appeared in Hadestown on tour, as well as She Loves Me (and its TV movie) and West Side Story on Broadway. Acting credits include Greenport and Bull, and he served as the voice of Austin in the Nick Jr. series The Backyardigans for the fourth season of the series.

Walcott, meanwhile, will play the studious and artistic Clay Walker. He is an Army brat who is very open-minded when it comes to his art and sexuality. True to his comic book counterpart, he will have an “impactful” friendship with Kevin Keller. Could this turn into something more?

Walcott has appeared in movies such as Moonfall and X-Men: Apocalypse, while TV shows include District 31, About Sex, Quantico, The Bold Type, and an array of French Canadian projects.

The upcoming seventh season of Riverdale will see the gang going back in time to the 1950s, and Jughead is the only one who remembers what happened before the comet. A premiere date has yet to be announced, but it is expected to be sometime in the spring of 2023. Check out the rest of our Riverdale coverage here, and stay tuned to more news at Nerds & Beyond!
