MI The fifth season of Riverdale is coming to our screens much later than the previous seasons. In this article, we will be discussing an updated look at the full release schedule for Riverdale Season 5 and when it will be dropped in each region. The streaming giant globally will be getting the new season but will be releasing differently depending on where you live.
The series continues to be a popular series on the streaming service around the world. It was featured prominently in the Netflix US top 10 shortly after the fourth season of the series dropped between May 15, 2020, and eventually dropped out of the top 10 on June 11, 2020.
The series has also been featured in the Netflix top 10s in countries like France, India, Germany, the Netherlands, Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom. We have already had a few big bits of news for the Riverdale Season 5, including that Drew Ray Tanner has been promoted to series regular, plus Erinn Westbrook, who has featured in Glee, will be featured as a brand new character for the fifth season.
Riverdale Season 5 | Global Netflix Release Schedule
Riverdale has been delayed from its usual release schedule on The CW in the month of October. This should come as no surprise as the productions for television series around the world came to a halt due to coronavirus and even saw a reduced episode count for Riverdale season 4.
The new season started shooting in the month of August of the year 2020; according to the reports, the series will be continuing its filming in Vancouver, Canada. It did not actually occur until later in the month of September of this year. The series has also stopped production at least once due to coronavirus concerns.
In essentially all the international territories of Netflix, Riverdale continues and will be continuing to be a Netflix Original title going into the fifth season.
As you may already know that Netflix releases Riverdale episodes shortly after its United States premiere on The CW. That will begin to happen again in the month of January 2021.
New episodes will be aired in the US on Wednesdays before arriving on Netflix the following morning (typically around 8 AM GMT). The United States will have even longer to wait for the fifth season. Season 4 arrived on the streaming service around a week after its finale in May 2020.
With the release date now pushed back three months, that is likely going to push the US release back three months also.
