The CW

“Riverdale” is expanding its cast for Season 5, bringing in “Broadchurch” actor Chris Mason to play Veronica’s (Camila Mendes) “controlling and jealous” husband after the show’s upcoming seven-year time jump.

Per The CW, Mason will play Chad Gekko, Veronica’s (Camila Mendes) controlling and jealous husband who works on Wall Street. He’s described as “an Alpha dog,” who is threatened by Veronica’s life in Riverdale, especially her friendship with Archie (KJ Apa).

Chad will be introduced in Episode 4 of “Riverdale’s” fifth season, which airs Wednesday, Feb. 10. That hour will feature the much-anticipated time jump that series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and the cast have been talking about since Season 4 wrapped prematurely.

Deadline first reported Mason’s casting on “Riverdale.”
