Will there be a Riverdale season 5?
Riverdale remains one of the most popular teen dramas on TV. Some fans, especially those who watch on Netflix, are now wondering if Riverdale season 5 is happening.
For those fans, we have some good news!
Yes, Riverdale season 5 is happening. The CW renewed the series for its fifth season last year. The new season will also be added to Netflix.
If you live in the United States, you have to wait until the full season airs on The CW until the new season is added to Netflix. Riverdale season 5 is coming to Netflix eight days after the season finale airs on The CW.
If you live outside of the United States, you can watch new episodes a little bit earlier. Each new episode is added to Netflix the day after it airs on The CW. So, usually, new episodes will bed added to Netflix on Thursdays outside of the US>
Riverdale season 5 delayed until 2021
Normally, we would be getting excited to watch the Riverdale season 5 premiere on The CW in October. Unfortunately, that’s not happening this year. Instead, Riverdale season 5 has been delayed until January 2021 at the earliest.
The CW pushed back all of its fall shows until January 2021 to make sure the cast and crew would be able to film the new episodes safely. The coronavirus pandemic cut Riverdale season 4 short by three episodes, and those episodes will be added to the beginning of Riverdale season 5.
After that, there will be a huge change. There will be a seven-year time jump that will bring the main characters, like Archie, Betty, Jughead, Veronica, Cheryl, Toni, and the others, out of childhood and into the first few years of being an adult.
It’s going to be a breath of fresh air for the series and should bring all the drama. I can’t wait to see how it all comes together.
Riverdale season 5 just started filming in September 2020. The cast and crew quarantined for two weeks before filming could start in Vancouver.
We’ll let you know the official premiere date for season 5 on The CW and the official release date on Netflix when we find out. Stay tuned!
