Riverdale cast: Who’s in for Riverdale season 5

Drew Ray Tanner: After recurring as Fans Fogarty for three seasons, beginning in season 2, Drew Ray Tanner has been promoted to series regular status for Riverdale season 5. It’s welcome news that guarantees Fangs will be involved in the show’s post-time jump storyline.

Erinn Westbrook: Joining the Riverdale cast this season is The Resident‘s Erinn Westbrook, who has been cast as Pop Tate’s granddaughter, Tabitha Tate. While it has not been confirmed, it’s expected Westbrook will join the cast following the time jump with Deadline reporting her character is coming to Riverdale in order to ” take over Pop’s Chock’lit Shoppe in the hopes of franchising the iconic diner, even as the town around it struggles to survive.”

Zane Holtz: Although Riverdale‘s spinoff Katy Keene will not be returning for a second season, the good news is fans will get to see Zane Holtz’s character KO Kelly at least one last time. While it remains unclear when he’ll appear, Holtz has teased that he will reprise his role as KO during a Riverdale season 5 guest apperance.

Additional Returning Riverdale cast: Mädchen Amick (Alice Cooper), KJ Apa (Archie Andrews), Mark Consuelous (Hiram Lodge), Casey Cott (Kevin Keller), Camila Mendes (Veronica Lodge), Charles Melton (Reggie Mantle) Vanessa Morgan (Toni Topaz), Madelaine Petsch (Cheryl Blossom), Lili Reinhart (Betty Cooper) and Cole Sprouse (Jughead Jones).
