New Arrival to Riverdale Season 5
The trail of good news has not ended yet. Riverdale fans can anticipate a new addition to the cast, Erinn Westbrook, who will be playing the character of Tabitha Tate. She will be a seen as a part of the teen drama in the character of Tabitha Tate, granddaughter of Pop Tate.
According to Deadline, Tabitha will travel to in Riverdale with solemn entrepreneurial spirits – she’ll be taking over Pop’s Chock’lit Shoppe and will try to transform the diner into a franchise.
Riverdale put an end to production in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic, after a crew member came in touch with a person who had tested positive for COVID-19 in March.
This implied that the fourth season was brusquely cut down to 19 episodes, departing with a cliff-hanger ending and letting fans ponder over the uncertainty as to when it would be resolved.
Filming for Riverdale Season 5
Luckily, things are starting to look better, with the cast brought together and filming initiated in September this year with an accurately steamy scene.
We are also aware of the fact that the next season will eventually premiere the long-awaited prom episode to screens, with a sneak peek of the event ready to feast your eyes soon. “Rest assured, ALL the queens will be reigning SUPREMELY next season,” he said.
While it was in the works to be broadcasted this October but the consequences of the pandemic will postpone its formerly scheduled release date.
Pre-production started in August 2020, before creator and showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa validated in September that filming was initiated on the new season, with an Instagram photo of himself and the cast members.
Expected Release Date for Riverdale Season 5
Some people are expecting the show to return in January 2021, but there’s a chance it could be coming out sooner, if work can go one without any hiccups.
