Last day.

Aaaand that’s a wrap on Season Five of Riverdale. So grateful to everyone who worked on this crazy show this crazy year, under crazier-than-usual circumstances. All the writers and directors and editors. And especially our tireless, amazing all-star cast and our beyond heroic crew, who somehow kept the ship on course. (Special shout-out to Robin Givens for bringing us home.) Really excited about our next batch of episodes. They’re some of the best we’ve done. And after that, a break. And after that…– Roberto Aguirre Sacasa.

It’s been a long road since production started in Vancouver last September, with three episodes left over from season 4 to shoot and then the planned 7-year time jump of season 5. All of this was compounded by the new Covid safety protocols and mandatory 14-day self-quarantines for cast entering Canada in the summer and then again when they returned in January after the holiday hiatus.

Riverdale season 5’s first tranche of 10 episodes didn’t premiere until January 20th and finished on March 13th. The final nine episodes premiere August 11th and run into October.

Cast is expected to return to Vancouver in a few months to start filming five special-event episodes for season 6 that will launch in November on a new night — Tuesdays at 9 after The Flash.

Off screen, Vanessa Morgan gave birth to her son River in late January.

And this month KJ Apa revealed he is expecting his first child with model Clara Berry — “River’s soon to be bestie”.

Riverdale season 5 returns with new episodes August 11th on The CW.

And Riverdale season 6 launches in November with 5 special-event episodes.
