In the case of Latin America and the rest of the world, fans of the youth series would have to wait a little longer. Normally, outside the United States, the streaming giant has released a new season of ” Riverdale ” a few months after its original broadcast.
For example, the fourth season ended in May 2020 and arrived on Netflix Latin America in October 2020, about four months after its end, so the same should happen with this fifth season.
At the moment it is known that since April 7, 2020, the fifth season of fiction began to be written, which should have 22 chapters. However, considering that the writer Ted Sullivan confirmed that the fifth installment will begin with the 3 remaining episodes of the previous season, it is likely that it will have 25.
What Will Happen In Season 5 Of “Riverdale”?
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 wearing masks that look like Betty, Jughead, Archie, Veronica, Cheryl, and Reggie stabbing Mr. Honey.
The end of the previous season left several unknowns that must be resolved in the fifth installment of ” Riverdale ” which, as announced by the showrunner, will begin with the remaining episodes of the third part and will include the prom.
“We had shot about half or two-thirds of Episode 20, which was our graduation episode. So when we closed, the first thing I did was look at all the footage from Episode 20 to see if we could put together an ending of that, or if we could steal footage. And honestly, even though we had filmed the prom, which was an amazing show and had great emotional stuff, there were so many scenes between Betty and Jughead, and Archie and Veronica, that we hadn’t filmed, that it felt like, ‘come on let that. episode be ‘.And then I saw the cut of Episode 19, which I loved.
The funny thing is that all the children are together in the story, which is very rare for us. He had a really funny concept that made him feel special, which is the story that Jughead is writing. And it had a really shocking and scary cliffhanger, which really took the mystery of the videotape to the next level. So I thought, ‘You know what? Since we’re shortening the season, maybe it’s best to end with episode 19, which is a really strong and fun episode, and then go back and have the prom as our season premiere next season. ‘ So we made that decision, and I feel good about it, ”explained Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa to and then come back and have the prom as our season premiere next season. ‘ So we made that decision, and I feel good about it, ”explained Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa to and then come back and have the prom as our season premiere next season. ‘ So we made that decision, and I feel good about it, ”explained Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa to TV Line.
