''Does Barry Manilow know that you raid his wardrobe?"
Get ready to (probably) hear Cole Sprouse playing his dad FP as a teen utter those infamous words in a S3 ep of Riverdale.
The hit CW show, which has recently began production for the hotly anticipated third season, has revealed a titbit of gossip about what we can expect once it returns to our screens.
Creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa announced at a TV Critics Association panel that the fourth episode of Season 3 will be a flashback episode called "The Midnight Club."

According to Vulture, it will be a "twisted" take on classic '80s teen movie The Breakfast Club.
Riverdale in the '80s? Sounds amazing.
Roberto elaborated: “we're going to learn about a really, really dark secret in Riverdale that the parents have been keeping since they were in high school.''
It has been confirmed that the main cast will take on the roles of their parents in this flashback and we are SERIOUSLY buzzing for it.

So we're looking at KJ Apa as Fred Andrews (Luke Perry), Lili Reinhart as Alice Cooper (Mädchen Amick), Camila Mendes as Hermione Lodge (Marisol Nichols), and Cole Sprouse as FP Jones (Skeet Ulrich).
Who will play young Mary Andrews (Molly Ringwald), Hiram Lodge (Marc Consuelos), and Hal Cooper (Lochlyn Munro) is anyone's guess.
Roberto also said that very attractive array of parents also might get a bit more attention this season.
“We’d love to do a bizarre episode where we follow most of the parents, and the kids are just on the fringes. In season three, we’re in a place where we can do that. I think it’d be a blast.”
The first teaser for Season 3 was released at ComicCon in July and it left us with many, many questions.
Will poor, innocent Archie be heading to the slammer? Will Hiram get away with framing him? Will Kevin finally get a decent storyline? Will more Choni scenes be cut out?
Your Riverdale fix is set to hit the CW on October 11th and arriving Netflix the day after, so we don't have to wait too long to find out.
