The rest of the Jones family will soon be coming to RIVERDALE! While Jughead’s father, FP, has been part of the show from the beginning, his mother (Gladys) and sister (Jellybean) have only been mentioned in passing. Today, during RIVERDALE’s New York Comic Con panel, it was announced that Gina Gershon and Trinity Likins have been cast as the remaining members of Jughead’s family.
- Gina Gershon plays Jughead’s mother, Gladys Jones, a “businesswoman” who runs the salvage yard (chop shop) that doubles as a Serpent compound, and the Serpents all snap to attention when she gives them an order. A Serpent with a GED, she acts as Fagin to a crew of teenaged car parts thieves.
- Trinity Likins is set for the role of Jughead’s sister, Jellybean “JB” Jones. She is wise beyond her years, and her favorite bands are Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath. Jellybean lives with her biker mom in Toledo where they run scams to make ends meet. And like mother like daughter: Jellybean — who goes by JB now — is quite the little con artist herself.
They will debut on RIVERDALE during the Wednesday, December 12, 2018, episode at 8/7c on The CW. The show returns for its third season on Wednesday, October 10, at 8/7c on The CW.
