Following the announcement, Connor's Riverdale co-stars congratulated the soon-to-be Mr. and Mrs.

"Beyond happy for both of you," Camila Mendes, who plays Veronica lodge on the CW series, wrote. "Congrats lovers!"

"So happy for the both of you!!!!!!! Congrats you love birds," Toni Topaz actress Vanessa Morgan commented.

Prepping for a wedding is not the only exciting thing just around the corner for Connor, who is also gearing up for the season three premiere of Riverdale on Wednesday, Oct. 10.

The highly anticipated third season of the series, which will feature a wedding of its own and is based on the Archie comics, will be a "dark" mystery "completely different" from that of the second season, according to Morgan.

"The storyline is really interesting, it's a completely different mystery than season two," Morgan teased. "It's very dark, but I like it. It's my vibe."

The third season will also delve into Archie's past and "weave together disparate moments of Archie's young life to portray him as a dangerous, violent sociopath who is capable of committing a heinous crime."
