RIVERDALE Gang Stuck in High School in 1955 in Final Season Premiere

To save the future, they must survive the past.

RIVERDALE Gang Stuck in High School in 1955 in Final Season Premiere

Riverdale is ending this season. And it’s going out in style. Archie (KJ Apa) and the gang are stuck in 1955 and back in high school in the 7th and final season.

At the start of the premiere, Jughead (Cole Sprouse) is the only one who knows they are from 67 years in the future but by the end he’s joined them in forgetting where they are from.

Final season trailer:

Riverdale Season 7 takes place in the 1950s, with Jughead (Cole Sprouse) having no idea how he got there or how to get back to the present. His friends can’t help; they’re living seemingly authentic lives, similar to their classic Archie Comics counterparts, unaware that they’ve ever been anywhere else. 

Archie (KJ Apa) is the classic all-American teen. Betty (Lili Reinhart) is the girl next door, starting to question everything about her perfect life. Veronica (Camila Mendes) is a Hollywood starlet who moved to town under mysterious circumstances. Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) is the Queen Bee with a secret longing. Toni (Vanessa Morgan) is an activist fighting for the Black students of recently integrated Riverdale High. Kevin (Casey Cott) is a “square” crooner wrestling with his sexual identity. Reggie (Charles Melton) is a basketball star from farm country. Fangs (Drew Ray Tanner) is a greaser destined to be an Elvis-type star.

Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes) and Cheryl’s twin Julian Blossom (now played by Nicholas Barasch).
