When Is Riverdale Season 5 Coming Out?
Riverdale's fourth chapter wrapped on 6th May, and we're finally looking ahead to season five, which Netflix finally confirmed would be airing in January 2021. With production of season four halted due to novel coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns, the next installment had to be affected, too. The most direct result thus far was a shortened season four, which scrapped three episodes and ended on a major cliffhanger involving the mysterious auteur voyeur.
However, with fans aching for answers amid so many uncertainties, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and cast member Mädchen Amick (Alice Cooper), are giving us glimmers of hope for the next collection of episodes. Keep reading to find out everything we know about Riverdale's fifth epoch, including what will happen (*cough* there's a major time jump *cough*), how it will address the departures of Marisol Nichols (Hermione Lodge) and Skeet Ulrich (F.P. Jones), and when it will return to the small screen.
