Riverdale Season 5 Updates: An American teen drama television series taken off from Archie Comics, this adaptation is heralded as one of the shows with the most popular viewership among young adults and teens.
Produced by Warner Bros Television and CBS Studios in association with Archie Comics, it was originally conceived as a feature film adaptation and later was re-imagined as a television series.
In 2015, The CW undertook the project and ordered a pilot which was broadcasted on Jan 26, 2017, and has been restored multiple times with the fifth one serving its premiere slate on Jan 20, 2021.
Meanwhile, swoop in to catch a brief outline of the plot.
Riverdale Season 5 Premise
Primarily flowing on a genre of mystery, this teen drama focuses on the life of Archie Andrews in the fictitious small town of Riverdale and the darkness under the cover of a seemingly idealistic frame unfolds along the way amidst relationship complications of youth.
What new updates have come to the surface about the upcoming season?
Pushed back in the queue for the coronavirus pandemic, Riverdale, at last, entered into its long-awaited fifth season.
A sneak peek trailer teased the show’s anticipated return to The CW and Netflix and gave off enough comprehensible cues about Betty Cooper’s dark transformation.
The stouthearted high school student, investigator, former gang member, and cheerleader has been known to be harboring a dark side since a pivotal moment in the first season.
What started out as petty high school drama surely took some appalling turns when Betty wowed a black wig and lingerie and chucked out a confession out of Chuck Clayton (Jordan Calloway).
It was later revealed that her sociopathic idiosyncrasy has been long-standing, much to her ‘serial killer gene’ in a particularly ludicrous moment.
Now, the new season suggests Betty’s viability in violence could actually mean something, albeit in self-defense. A climactic moment in the trailer flashed Betty looking shaken yet boldly walking around her home, holding a gun.
When the next season of Riverdale kicked in, it seems has a lot on her plate. She has proven herself to be skillfully trained in using firearms before, also had every reason to kill her father, Hal Cooper who she discovered was under the wraps of the Black Hood.
Stay tuned in to grab the latest updates.
