Riverdale Season 5: Spoilers! What Is Coming Up?
The showrunner revealed that they have been planning for a time jump. He says that they understand that time jumps usually happen between the seasons. However, the pandemic has stunned the show’s production for the next season. Aguirre confessed that they think that they will first start with the three episodes left from the fourth season and then start the fresh set of episodes from Riverdale Season 5.
The showrunner also teased that they will pick up from where they left, and after three episodes, they will take the jump. So, the viewers will get to experience the end of the ongoing murder mystery before the time jump happens.
More of Betty-Archie Tryst Coming Up
Roberto Aguirre also talked about the dramatic secret tryst between Betty and Archie Andrews. He explained that Betty had put an end to the relationship even before anything had started. But is that really over for good? Perhaps no. Viewers did not get to see the end of that story. On the basic level, Veronica and Jughead had no idea about anything that had happened in the bunker or in Archie’s garage. So, that will be coming ahead.
Aguirre went on to say that by the end of the last episodes, it was pretty clear that whatever happened between Archie and Betty was affecting Betty and Jughead’s relationship. Archie is now kind of lost and confused. A love triangle has always been taunted in the show. It looks like now, in Riverdale season 5, that love triangle will finally happen. Will things be the same after that happens?
When Will Riverdale Season 5 Release?
Riverdale, along with many other shows, was renewed back in January 2020. Riverdale still is one of the most popular shows on CW though the show’s ratings have fallen since the third season. The wild storyline of the show had grabbed some viewership.
Riverdale season 5 will now hit our screens in January 2021. The show will air on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET. The new seasons of the show usually premiere in the second week of October, and the finale mostly releases in mid-May. However, this year things will be different.
All productions, along with Riverdale, have been delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic for an unforeseen period. The filming of the series usually begins by summer, several months before the October premiere. The show is filmed in Vancouver. It is upon the Canadian government when they would allow the productions to resume. So, as a precautionary measure, The CW had pushed their whole schedule to January.
