Based on the characters of Archie Comics, Riverdale is an American teen drama television series. Produced by Warner Bros, the series was adapted for The CW by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the chief creative officer of Archie Comics.

The Release Date Of Riverdale Season 5

The official schedule of 2021 has been released by The CW and Riverdale has been confirmed to return on 20th January, 2021 at 8PM ET/9PM CT, its usual Wednesday night time slot.

So our favorite Riverdale is officially coming back for the fifth season, which surely means another year of romance, mystery and a whole lot of drama.

The cast returned to set on 15th September to begin shooting for Season 5, after quarantining in Vancouver for two weeks.

The show’s creator, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa shared this information via an Instagram post,

“After fourteen days of quarantining in (Vancouver’s flag) and months of prep, #Riverdale Season 5 starts shooting tomorrow. Spent the night in the bubble, reminiscing with these lovely people and celebrating @lilireinhart 24th birthday. How time flies. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the gang this week. Here we go…”

Production was again delayed in the beginning of October, due to some issue with processing COVID-19 Tests in the area.

The Plot Of Riverdale Season 5

Riverdale will hop forward seven years which will be a way of revamping the show according to Reinhart. A very dramatic prom night will also be a part of the fifth season. Technically it was supposed to be a part of the fourth season which had to be left incomplete due to the present coronavirus pandemic situation.

A crossover between Riverdale and Katy Keene is also supposed to take place, however how will it happen only time will tell.

The Cast Of Riverdale Season 5

We are expecting to see KJ Apa, Cole Sprouse, Lili Reinhart and Camilia Mendes to return as Archie Andrews, Jughead, Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge respectively. We also expect fellow students like Kevin Keller (Casey Cott), Toni(Vanessa Morgan), Cheryl Blossom(Madelaine Petsch) and Reggie Mantle (Charles Melton) to return.

As a seven-year time jump is going to take place in the 5th Season, surely there will be some new characters entering the show. ‘Insatiable’ famed Erinn Westbrook is going to join the cast as Tabitha Tate, the grand-daughter of Pope Tate.

The character of Fangs Fogarty played by Drew Ray Tanner has also been upped to a series regular for the fifth Season.
