REOPENING: Pop’s is Waiting. RIVERDALE Season 5 Has Mid-September Filming Start Date in Vancouver.

Reopening Hollywood North

Looks like Riverdale cast is headed back to Vancouver late this summer to start filming season 5.

Target filming dates: September 14th to May 1st, 2021 (via DGC-BC Production List).

Cast: KJ Apa, Lili Reinhart, Cole Sprouse, Camila Mendes, Madelaine Petsch, Vanessa Morgan, Casey Cott, Charles Melton and Madchen Amick.

Cast from outside Canada will have to do the Canadian government-mandated 14-day self quarantine before heading to set.

Riverdale managed to film 19 out of 22 episodes before the coronavirus pandemic shut down production mid-March.

So we’ll get to see the Archie gang go to Prom and graduate at the start of season 5.

What has the cast been doing in the long hiatus?

KJ Apa split his head open yesterday while filming the Michael Bay-produced movie Songbird  in L.A. The movie wrapped mid-August.


Cole Sprouse, who’s been quarantining with KJ Apa, joined the Black Lives Matter protests in L.A. and was arrested.

Vanessa Morgan spoke up about Black Lives Matter.

Lili Reinhart is promoting her Amazon film Chemical Romance.

Season Five of  Riverdale won”t premiere until January 2021.
