Riverdale has met its popularity basically overnight. The audience loves this school drama show, primarily since it is based on Archie Comics’ characters.
The show was first released on CW on January 26, 2017. We met Archie, Veronica, Betty, and Jughead, and we started to get attached very fast. Later in 2017, they talked about a new series called Chilling Adventures of Sabrina being in progress, also based on the comics, featuring Sabrina Spellman.
Besides Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, there is also Katy Keene, the spin-off from Riverdale. CW has revived the show for its 4th season. It was released on October 9, 2019. Right now, we are wondering if there will also be a fifth season, and when will it be released?
Has it been renewed?
We heard that CW had revived the show for a fifth season in January 2020. The series got renewed quickly because it has a huge fanbase, and they basically demanded a new season.
Right now, there is no official release date. We believe that it will come sometime in 2020 or 2021.
Who is the cast of season 5?
- KJ Apa as Archie Andrews
- Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper
- Cole Sprouse as Jughead
- Camila Mendes as Veronica Lodge
- Casey Cott as Kevin Keller
- Madelaine Petsch as Cheryl Blossom
- Charlies Melton as Reggie Mantle
These stars won’t appear in the new season:
- Ashleigh Murray as Josie McCoy
- Skeet Ulrich as F.P Jones
- Marisol Nichols as Hermione Lodge
What is the plot of the new season?
The show focuses on Archie Andrews’ life, who lives in his small town, Riverdale. We will probably see a cross-over with Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, as we already did with Lucy Hale’s Katy Keene. It has been said that we will see more of Katy Keene in this new season.
Hopefully, Riverdale Season 5 would remain as entertaining as the first four seasons, even though some characters from the earlier series will not appear.
