With four immensely successful seasons completed and done with, CW has announced a brand new season for the Netflix featured show Riverdale. Based on the ever famous, part of our childhood, Archie comics, Riverdale, an American teen drama series follows the lives of the four main characters Archie, Veronica, Betty and Jughead who are busy exploring the unchartered territories of romance, high school, mysteries and family. Set in the fictional town of Riverdale, the show has managed to grab a lot of attention from all kinds of audience specially the millenials, modern day adaptations of the world famous comics has made quite a name and a permanent place in the hearts of its fans. It was in January 2020 that CW and creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa almost confirmed season 5 to take forward the stories of our favourite teenagers and since the fandom for the show keeps on growing we can safely assume that we are in for another dose of Riverdale drama.
All of us will agree when we state that Riverdale ranges on a spectrum from typical high school drama to quiet serious and life threatening adventures, and it is precisely because of this that fans eagerly await the next season to unwrap an entirely new series of 22 fresh, thrill and drama free episodes. From what the creators and the media team of the series are up to we can place the 5th season to air somewhere around October 2020 or to a stretch, early 2021. Moving on to the cast that would return for another season, its quiet certain that KJ Apa (Archie Andrews), Lili Reinhart (Betty cooper) and Camila Mendes (Veronica) and Cole Sprouse (Jughead) would carry forward their iconic characters but the catch to this is that we might soon witness Jughead’s character to take a gracious exit from the show as rumours fly about the ever cutest Cole Sprouse leaving the Riverdale family, but we might just be wrong so better to wait dotingly to see what happens next! While it might be difficult to predict what exactly might happen next because of the show’s history to surprise us with things we never expected we can conjecture on a possible crossover between Riverdale, Katy Keen and The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina because already these shows being Riverdale’s spinoff have a lot in common.
Above all gossip, something we can definitely see coming is more of Archie’s crush worthy performance, drama, new trouble brewing, refined and ever dangerous enemies entering the picture and what not! Riverdale already has its religious fans staying tuned to any and every news and just like the last 4 seasons, it might just pull its popularity to a whole different level.
