The American show “Riverdale” is all set to make a comeback with its fifth season. The show is popular enough to make its fans drool over this news and is receiving their love from everywhere. Fans took no time to send show their excitement and passion in the comments after the show made the announcement on their official Instagram handle.
We are here to tell you everything about the upcoming fifth season of the show. So let’s take a dive in and have a look at everything we have gathered up for you here.
Riverdale Season 5: When is the release happening?
Back in January, The CW confirmed a fifth season of the show, which is based on Archie Comics, was in the pipeline.
While it was originally scheduled to air this October, the impact of the pandemic is lily to delay its originally planned premiere date.
Pre-production began in August 2020, before creator and showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa confirmed in September that shooting was beginning on the new season, posting an Instagram photo of himself and Riverdale cast members.
With the season now airing in January 2021 instead of October 2020, there is a possibility that season 5 will have less episodes than the usual 22-episode season. Due to the uncertainty of the corona virus situation, this could be changed. There is no confirmation so far.

Riverdale Season 5: What about the plotline?
The first 3 episodes of the fifth season will consist of the final 3 episodes of the fourth season. We will be seeing prom, graduation, and hopefully a resolution to that creepy videotape mystery.
After the time jump, we will 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 new love interests and one will be married.
