Riverdale is a teen-mystery drama that is currently airing on CW. There are currently four seasons released yet. Season 4 was not supposed to end so soon, but due to COVID-19, pandemic, the season was cut short. Riverdale Season 5 is releasing this month on the 19th. A time-jump is going to happen in the latest season.
Season five is graduation and then they’re going to jump-cut seven years after a few episodes. Which was a decision not to stay in college. It completely foregoes the college time in chronological order and just jumps cut. I’ve read the first six episodes. It’s super interesting. I’m excited to do it. I’m up to my old shenanigans. But, I’m excited to get back to work.Mark Consuelos
Riverdale Season 4 ended with a huge cliffhanger and three episodes did not air because of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, before the time jump, those episodes will air. This season is certainly not going to be like previous seasons. Chris Mason is joining the Riverdale Season 5 cast as the Veronica Lodge husband. He appeared as the guest star in the CW’s Katy Keene which is also Riverdale’s spinoff series. However, it was canceled. Erinn Westbrook is joining the cast of Riverdale as Tabitha Tate.
