Riverdale Season 5 Announcement & Release Date
The fourth season was cut short due to the pandemic. The story will pick up the prom night arc in the first episode of the upcoming season. The fifth installment of the series was announced by CW in January 2020 and is set to premiere on 20 January 2021.
The ending of previous episodes shook things up as far as the dynamics between the four protagonists are concerned. The same tension will be focussed on in the upcoming episodes. Lili Reinhart, who plays the role of Betty on the show also suggested a time-leap in the future episodes of the series.
All I can say is… for season 5… I’ve had to scream at the top of my lungs quite a few times. Poor, poor Betty 😏💀👀😈😱 #riverdale (don’t worry though, actually)
