Time Jump

Riverdale Season 5 will be a time jump to the time they finally graduate from college. Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead will be going to different colleges. Betty is leaving for Yale, and Archie agreed on joining the navy. They won’t be together during that time, as Riverdale is based on these four characters, so they came up with the idea of the time jump. Skeet Ulrich teased about the Time Jump.

I know they want to take the show in a little bit of a different direction next season, too, and jump five years ahead

Moreover, two cast members of Riverdale, Skeeter Ulrich (F.P Jones), and Marisol Nichols (Hermione Lodge) left the show. However, the creator of the show Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa said: “they are always welcome back in Riverdale”. That means they can join the show anytime.
