Riverdale Season 5 Details
Well, this is not all of it. The fans of Riverdale can expect a new character, Tabitha Tate, which will be played by Erinn Westbrook. She will be joining the teen drama as the granddaughter of Pop Tate. Tabitha will be arriving in Riverdale with serious entrepreneurial ambitions, and she will be taking over Pop’s Chocklit Shoppe and attempting to turn the diner into a franchise. Riverdale was one of the first to halt its production due to the ongoing pandemic after a member of the crew came into the contact with someone who had tested positive for COVID-19 in the month of March.
This meant that the fourth season of the series was abruptly cut down to the nineteen episodes, leaving the fans with a cliffhanger ending to obsess them over and uncertainty about when it is going to be resolved. Fortunately, the things are looking to be picking up, with the cast reunited and the filming kicking off at the beginning of the month of September this year with a literally steamy scene.
We are also aware that the next season will be finally bringing the long-awaited prom episodes to the screens, with a first-look image of the event ready to feast your eyes on below. It is predicted that the show is likely to return in the month of January of 2021, but there is a chance it could be earlier if work can resume without a hitch.
