Actor Madelaine Petsch has said her Riverdale character Cheryl Blossom is a lesbian, having previously said that she is bisexual.
In a recent Q&A on her YouTube channel, Petsch said: “I’ve actually been talking to Roberto [showrunner] about it a lot and I think we’ve kind of figured out that Cheryl is a lesbian.

Petsch’s character Cheryl got together with bisexual Toni Topaz towards the end of season two of the hit Netflix show.
Cheryl is consequently sent to have gay “conversion” therapy, but is broken out of the centre by Toni.
“I think we’ve kind of figured out that Cheryl is a lesbian. This is definitely who she is as a person.”
In another fan Q&A in March, Petsch had said her character was bisexual.
“She’s still figuring out what her sexuality is,” Petsch said at the time.
“Cheryl is definitely interested in both women and men, so I would say she is bisexual. I think you’re going to see a lot more of her figuring out who she is.”
