When will Riverdale season 5 be on Netflix?
After being delayed for its October 2020 release because of the coronavirus pandemic, fans will finally be rewarded for their patience as the beloved CW series is finally ready to make its triumphant return. Riverdale season 5 is set to premiere on January 20, 2021 at 8 p.m. EST. Now that the show has returned, many wonder when it will make its way to Netflix for subscribers to see?
If you live outside the US, the news is good, but if that’s not the case, then the upcoming revelation is less than ideal. Riverdale season 5 will continue to be billed as a Netflix original and will be available on Netflix the next day after airing in The CW.
As far as when Riverdale season 5 will come out for those subscribers in the United States, they will have to endure a bit more waiting. The fourth season of The CW teen drama wants to be made available on the streaming service until a week after its season finale in May 2020. Fans could likely see the new set of episodes sometime in August or September 2021, but that’s just speculation at the moment.
Riverdale has done rather well on Netflix as it rose the ranks shortly after its fourth season dropped on the service breaking into the top ten charts for almost a whole month. And that was just in the US as the well-received CW series has also been a chart-topper in regions such as India, Australia, Canada, United Kingdom, and the Netherlands.
It’s really no surprise how popular the show based on the infamous Archie comics has become, and it’s understandable why fans everywhere are so eager to see what is set to go down in the long-awaited and hugely anticipated Riverdale season 5.
Here is the official synopsis released by The CW for the Riverdale season 5 premiere episode titled “Chapter Seventy-Seven: Climax.”
PROM NIGHT INTERRUPTED — Betty (Lili Reinhart) and Jughead’s (Cole Sprouse) investigation into the auteur leads them to the discovery of a secret underground for red-band screenings. Elsewhere, in order to impress the visiting Naval Academy Commandant, Archie (KJ Apa) agrees to participate in a boxing exhibition against another candidate — KO Kelly (guest star Zane Holtz). Meanwhile, as Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) prepares for prom, she stumbles upon a major secret that Toni’s (Vanessa Morgan) been keeping from her. Camila Mendes, Mädchen Amick, Mark Consuelos, Casey Cott, Charles Melton, Vanessa Morgan and Drew Ray Tanner also star.
And here is the official trailer for Riverdale season 5:
It will be interesting to see how things play out in Riverdale season 5 and what the fan’s reaction will be after such a long wait. One thing that is for sure is that fans won’t want to mess with what’s in store when the next chapter premiers and Netflix subscribers will want to make sure they know when to mark their calendars when the must-watch ordeal is finally available for the streaming service’s 200 million subscribers.
