Everything We Know About Riverdale Season 5

Everything We Know About Riverdale Season 5

Riverdale fans have patiently waited for the show's return since the fourth season wrapped in May last year. Season 4 was cut short due to the production shut down, caused by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

As a result of the abbreviated fourth season - and all the drama of course - fans are eager to see where Archie and the gang are in their lives when we return to the mysterious town of Riverdale for season 5.

How has the Covid-19 pandemic impacted Riverdale season 5?

The show officially shut down production back in March after a team member came into contact with somebody who had tested positive for Covid-19.

For this reason, Season 4 was forced to be made shorter, which now means Season 5 will be extra long, beginning with essentially the last few episodes of Season 4.

What will season 5 be about?

When the show returns, fans will get to see the group's graduation and their prom as they leave Riverdale High, before shooting forward seven years into the future.

You can watch the trailer below:

Speaking about the new season during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Lili Reinhart (who plays Betty Cooper) said: "We're actually doing a seven-year time jump into the future so we're not going to be teenagers anymore.

"I'm really psyched about it. I think it will be really nice to play an adult."
