This moment is yours, Riverdale! As of January 20, at 9:40 pm, Archie, Betty, Veronica, and their friends are back in Riverdale’s fifth season on the Warner Channel screen with a simultaneous world premiere with the United States. Also, the channel has prepared a super novelty for fans. For the first time on TV, Valentina Pulgarin and Alice Aquino present live ” Pop Talks “, the already traditional chat about the series, right after the episode aired. The program also continues to be shown simultaneously on Warner’s YouTube.
The fifth season, consisting of 19 episodes, begins with a new school year when the whole city is suffering from the tragic and recent death of the high school golden boy, Jason Blossom, and nothing looks the same. Archie Andrews is still a fully American teenager, but the events of the summer have made him realize that he wants to pursue a career in music – not in his father’s footsteps – despite the sudden end of his forbidden relationship with the young Riverdale music teacher, Mrs. Grundy. This means Archie has no one to mentor him. It certainly won’t be singer Josie McCoy, who is focused only on her band, who will soon become the world-famous Pussycats.
Everything is weighing heavily on Archie’s mind, as well as his shaken friendship with Jughead Jones. Meanwhile, neighboring Betty Cooper is eager to see Archie’s crush after spending the summer, but she is not yet ready to reveal her true feelings. However, this is not the only thing that holds it back. When a new student, Veronica Lodge, arrives in the city, there is an undeniable spark between her and Archie, although Veronica does not want to risk her new friendship with Betty by placing a bet on him.
And then there’s Cheryl Blossom, the queen bee of Riverdale, who is happy to cause problems between Archie, Betty, and Veronica. But Cheryl is keeping her secrets. What, exactly, is she hiding about the mysterious death of her twin brother, Jason? Riverdale may seem like a quiet, sleepy city, but there are many dangers in the shadows.
