The Archie comics-based show has made its way to the fans’ hearts. The show has been brought by Creative chief executive Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa of Archie comics. It has been designed and produced by Warner Bros. NBC and CBS TV studios. The show has circled the life of Archie and other characters who live in the city of Riverdale.
We have all the updates on the upcoming Season 5.
When is the show expected to hit the screens?
As of now, due to the outbreak of the global pandemic COVID-19, the show is not set to release anytime soon. According to rumors, it may not air before October 2020. Speculations are also being made of this being the last season of the popular teen series.
Any changes in the cast?
There are no expected changes in the cast for the upcoming season. There may be, however, some new additions, but nothing can be said as of now. Fans will likely catch the previous cast members in the new season. KJ Apa, as Archie Andrews, Lili Reinhart, will play Betty Cooper. Whereas, Camila Mendes as Veronica Lodge and Cole Sprouse as Jughead are expected to return. Fans may also get to see Madelaine Petsch as Cheryl Blossom, Ashley Murray, as Josie McCoy and others.
What may the new plot hold?
As per the story goes, the characters are developing and twisting up as we proceed with the show. Veronica being a dye, Betty getting darker day by day or even a killer, Archie switching sides and Cheryl going all Rambo. The new season can hold anything. Rumors are also making rounds that there may be a crossover with Sabrina as Greendale residing in a neighboring city or even Katy Keene. The show has become much more than just a crime thriller series. It may be possible that there will be a five-year time leap in the upcoming season, and all the characters turn 23.
Well, let us know what do you think.
