Riverdale Season 5:
Production of Riverdale Season 4 was shut down in mid-March. This unpredictable situation was uncertain as to when filming for Riverdale season 5 would begin and when new episodes would be released. The decision was made to do episode 19 as the season finale, “Killing Mr Honey”.
Has It been renewed for the next instalment?
Riverdale was renewed in January 2020 along with 13 other shows on The CW. Although ratings have dropped since Season 3, Riverdale remains one of CW’s most popular shows, and its wild stories have earned it some notoriety even among them.
When would the new season of Riverdale stream?
Riverdale Season 5 will now premiere in January 2021, and air on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET. The new seasons at Riverdale generally premiere in the second week of October and come to an end in mid-May. However, Riverdale season 5 production is expected to be delayed due to the coronavirus epidemic. Riverdale is filmed in Vancouver, and the Canadian government is still deciding how long the current restrictions will last, so The CW brought its entire fall schedule forward to January.
What could be the expected storyline this time for the 5th Instalment of the show?
Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has stated that the first three episodes of Season 5 of Riverdale will incorporate the story of Season 4, including the mystery of the Sinister videotape. This will be followed by a leap in time (rumoured to be about five years), taking the story forward at a time when the characters going to college have graduated and the situation has brought everyone back to Riverdale. Archie will go to the US Naval Academy. While Betty leaves for Yale, Jughead attends the University of Iowa, and Veronica goes to Barnard College.
