The trailer of Riverdale Season 5:
A trailer for the second half of season five was released in July 2021 and certainly teases some darker episodes, as Betty prepares to fight and quite possibly kill Polly’s killer.
Why was Riverdale season 4 cut short?
Riverdale season four ended on 19 episodes – instead of the expected 22 – because the coronavirus halted production on the show, cutting the season short.
This meant that a key prom episode, originally due to air as episode 20 in season four, kicked things off for season five, as the high schoolers donned their glad-rags and buckled up for some serious drama.
“When it became clear that we weren’t gonna be able to finish the season, the first thing I kind of did was to look at episode 20 to see if we could cobble together an episode from that,” showrunner Robert Aguirre-Sacasa told Entertainment Weekly.
Riverdale season 5 spoilers
We’ve already seen the first part of season five, which saw a romance between Archie and Betty, Jughead’s disappearance, and Hiram landing in jail – however, that’s all about to change with the second half of the series.
The new series jumped several years into the future, with the cast playing adult versions of their characters.
Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa told Entertainment Tonight earlier this year: “On a practical level we really wanted to I call them still the kids [Laughs] but for the kids to be playing characters closer to their age.
What will happen in Riverdale season 5?
The first 3 episodes of season 5 will consist of the final 3 episodes of season 4. We’ll be seeing prom, graduation, and hopefully a resolution to that creepy videotape mystery. Fingers crossed, we’ll find out what’s happening between Chic and Charles too.
After the time jump, we’ll also be meeting a whole host of new characters, including Pop Tate’s granddaughter Tabitha Tate, who will be rolling into town. According to a report from That Hashtag Show, a few members of the core four will also have a new love interest, and one will be married.
Is Riverdale Season 5 worth watching?
Yes! A lot of fans are saying Riverdale season five is much better than Riverdale season four.
