Lili Reinhart talked about the time jump ahead of season 5.
We’re doing a seven-year time jump into the future. We’re not going to be teenagers anymore.I’m psyched about it. It’ll be nice to play an adult. But I also appreciate our showrunner Roberto…yeah let’s revamp so we’re not stuck in high school for seven seasons. 30-year-olds in high school. – Lili Reinhart told Jimmy Fallon in August.
