Riverdale is an American teenager mystery drama based on the characters of Archie Comics by Roberto Aguirre Sacasa. The series was originally premiered on The CW Network on January 26, 2017. After getting a fairly good rating on IMDb of 7/10 the producer Warner Bros gave a thought to renew the series for further seasons. To date, four seasons of Riverdale are out and have been crowd-pleasing on Netflix and viewers are looking forward to season five of Riverdale. Although, season four was cut short and instead of 22 episodes only 19 episodes were telecasted due to the pandemic.
But insiders have revealed few interesting facts here:
When is the next season releasing?
Since season four was cut short it left the viewers more in suspense, but most probably this time Riverdale might be missing the October release schedule. However, if we consider today’s condition and see the global spread of Coronavirus then it’s difficult to predict the release date of Riverdale season 5. But, we can expect the upcoming season to return in January 2021.
Who all will be joining Riverdale Season 5?
Recently one of the actors of Riverdale came live on Instagram and marked the statement “got bored creatively”, he is none other than Skeet Ulrich who played the role of Jughead’s dad. So unfortunately we are not expecting to see him the forthcoming season. Apart from him maybe Marisol Nichols won’t return for further seasons as Roberto Aguirre Sacasa said: “Part of life in Riverdale – and part of growing up- is saying goodbye to people. I’m grateful to Skeet and Marisol for their incredible work on the show for the last four years and we all wish them for their future endeavors. FP and Hermione will never be far from our hearts. And, of course, they’re always welcome back in Riverdale.”
So it’s quite clear from the statement, but these actors will be there:
KJ Apa, Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes, Cole Sprouse, Madelaine Petsch, Ashleigh Murray, Mädchen Amick, Luke Perry, Mark Consuelos, Casey Cott, Skeet Ulrich, Charles Melton, and Vanessa Morgan
