Riverdale will have a fifth season, as confirmed by The CW in January 2020, and the end of the fourth installment left the way prepared for the story of Archie, Veronica, Jughead and Betty to continue. However, due to the current coronavirus crisis, the filming of the new episodes has no start date yet.
Under normal conditions, filming for the new season of the youth series would start 5 in July 2020, but due to security measures against COVID -19, it is likely to be delayed.
At the moment it is known that the fifth season of Riverdale began to be written on April 7, 2020, which should have 22 chapters. Although considering that the writer Ted Sullivan confirmed that the fifth installment will begin with the 3 remaining episodes of the previous season, perhaps it has more.
What Will Happen In Season 5 Of “Riverdale”?
In the last episode of the fourth season of Riverdale, Jughead writes a short story where the students take revenge on Mr. Honey with a joke that goes wrong and ends his life. While in the real world, Betty enlists the parents’ help to prevent the principal from canceling the prom.
Alice’s daughter manages to preserve the dance and Honey is fired, but when he leaves he discovers that he was the best director they have had in years, also, he wrote Jughead a letter of recommendation to the writing program of the University of Iowa. The latter causes Jug to change his tale, and instead of letting him die they call 911 and save him.
The fourth season of Riverdale ends with Jughead and Betty receiving another video. The clip shows Veronica’s mother killed Sheriff Minetta; Betty and Jughead in the cabin surrounded by pizza boxes and beer bottles; and a group of people in masks that look like Betty, Jughead, Archie, Veronica, Cheryl, and Reggie stabbing Mr. Honey.
That closure left several questions that must be resolved in the fifth installment of The CW series that, as announced by showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, will begin with the remaining episodes of the third part and will include the prom.
“ I am proud of the last episode. Actually, the last two. Prom is really classic. And on the 21st, it was a real emotional episode and a lot of people’s emotional stories reached their climax, but actually, it’s graduation. It is a rite of passage. So many graduations were canceled this year. I really loved that episode. So I’m looking forward to doing it at some point, ”he told EW.

So far, it has been confirmed that both Skeet Ulrich and Marisol Nichols will not be part of the entire fifth season. On the Australian morning show The Today Show, Skeet said: ” I know they also want to take the show in a different direction next season and jump five years ahead .”
“ When it was all over, I got in touch with the entire cast, got in touch with Marisol and Skeet and told them that we hadn’t finished those stories, and we want to make sure you guys have good goodbyes. I think Marisol knew what Hermione was going to do. I don’t think Skeet knew yet what FP was going to do. The truth is that it is not a spoiler, but neither Hermione nor FP are being killed. So my hope is that they are part of Riverdale in a real way as long as there is a ‘Riverdale’, ”the showrunner told TV line.
Meanwhile, Mark Consuelos will star in an upcoming episode of Katy Keene set five years into the future, so it’s safe to assume that Hiram will still be free in the universe.
