Riverdale has left plenty to be desired of Gladys Jones. She is Jughead’s (Cole Sprouse) mom and has been missing since the series began. The writers have explained her absence but many viewers can’t help but wonder if there is more to her absence than just a split from FP (Skeet Ulrich).

Now that Jughead and Archie (KJ Apa) are on the road and away from Riverdale, they will come into contact with Gladys. There is a purpose for this and right now, viewers aren’t sure where this is headed.

With Gershon’s appearance happening in the fall finale, speculation is that perhaps Gladys has some part in the Gargoyle King being in Riverdale.

Who is Gina Gershon?

Not much is known about Gina Gershon’s private life. She is known for her acting and theatrical career but much of her personal life remains hidden. She has never been married and has no children.

Gershon was previously linked romantically to Bill Clinton, though she denied anything ever happened and insists the two only met on a few occasions. Aside from that, the actress keeps to herself for the most part.

Where have you seen Gina Gershon?

Viewers may recognize Gina Gershon from various movies or television shows. She has been in movies such as Showgirls, P.S. I Love You, and Blockers.

On the television side, there have been many guest star roles spanning her career. She has held lasting roles on Snoops, Rescue Me, Red Oaks, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Gladys Jones will be a recurring role on Riverdale. Showing up tonight will be a treat for viewers who have wondered about Jughead’s mom. Gina Gershon will bring something new to the show and with that, there is no telling what is in store.

Riverdale airs Wednesday nights at 8/7c on the CW network.
