‘Riverdale Season 5’: Release Date, plot, cast- Lili Rienhart, Camila Mendes, Cole Sprouse and more

Riverdale, the American-drama TV series, which is based on the iconic Archie comic books, debuted in 2017. With a 7 IMDb rating and largely positive reviews, the first season gained a mass fan following. Season 3 and the subsequent seasons were, however, not as well-received as the other seasons.


The show is set in the town Riverdale and revolves around the life of Archie Andrews. Jason Blossom, a popular high school student, is murdered on the 4th of July. This leads to an uproar in the seemingly innocent town of Riverdale and Archie and his friends embark on a journey to unravel the secrets of this baffling murder. More characters, Veronica, Jughead, and Betty, enter the life of Archie and add interesting elements to the story.


Some of the main cast members are-

KJ Apa as Archie Andrews: He is Veronica and Betty’s friend. A high school jock who is very passionate about music.

Lili Reinhart, as Betty Cooper: With a major crush on Archie, she decides to befriend Veronica.

Camila Mendes as Veronica Lodge: Originally from a wealthy New York family, Veronica relocates to the small town of Riverdale. She plays a major role in the series.

Cole Sprouse, as Jughead Jones: He is Archie’s best friend; however, a social outcast at the same time.

Madelaine Petsch, as Cheryl Blossom: She is a privileged teen who comes from a rich household. Another important cast member, she plays Archie, Veronica, and Betty’s classmate.


Although it is not certain how season 4 will end, official confirmation for season 5 has been made, and the teen drama will most certainly show a time leap in the upcoming season. Due to the ongoing pandemic, a filming schedule has not yet been ascertained, but season 5 is in its writing and planning stages as of now.
