Riverdale has met its popularity basically overnight. The audience loves this school drama show, primarily since it is based on Archie Comics\u2019 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? \tKJ Apa as Archie Andrews \tLili Reinhart as Betty Cooper \tCole Sprouse as Jughead \tCamila Mendes as Veronica Lodge \tCasey Cott as Kevin Keller \tMadelaine Petsch as Cheryl Blossom \tCharlies Melton as Reggie Mantle These stars won\u2019t appear in the new season: \tAshleigh Murray as Josie McCoy \tSkeet Ulrich as F.P Jones \tMarisol Nichols as Hermione Lodge What is the plot of the new season? The show focuses on Archie Andrews\u2019 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\u2019s 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.
