Riverdale Season 5: Release Date
The fourth season of the CW series was dropped on October 9, 2019, and the last episode was dropped on May 6, 2020. But we know that Riverdale Season 5 stopped midway just after airing 19 episodes due to the pandemic outbreak.
Therefore Riverdale Season 5 was inevitable. But the production of the upcoming season faced a massive delay due to coronavirus lockdown. Initially, the fifth season was expected to release by the end of 2020. But due to the delay in shooting the makers postponed the release date.
After a long delay, the production finally resumed in Vancouver from September 2020. And if sources are to be believed then the crew has almost wrapped up the shoot.
Therefore CW has also announced the final release date of the upcoming season. Yes! Riverdale Season 5 will be releasing on January 20, 2021, after a long wait!
Riverdale Season 5: Plot
As we know that the CW mystery drama series is centred in a small town called Riverdale which is full of mysteries and dark secrets. And four teenagers Betty, Jughead, Veronica and Archie are the ones unveiling all the mysteries of Riverdale one by one.
The series basically revolves around how the dark secrets pf Riverdale change the lives of these teenagers. In the upcoming season, we can finally see Archie and his friends attending the prom before they graduate.
