Spoilers for 'Riverdale'
Fans have been anticipating Season 5 of The CW's 'Riverdale' for a while now, and with so many changes such as the 7-year time jump with the gang promised, we're thinking this season might be the best out of the four. While Jughead Jones' (Cole Sprouse) father, FP Jones (Skeet Ulrich) won't be coming back to the show, all other cast members will reprise their roles. There are also new characters such as Chris Mason's Chad Gekko who plays Veronica Lodge's (Camilla Mendes) controlling and jealous Wall street working husband.
Season 5 is set to start with the entire gang at their graduation, and yes we will eventually also see prom. Not to mention Vanessa Morgan who plays Toni Topax became pregnant while shooting for this season, and so according to reports her real-life -pregnancy is "embedded" into the storyline. Our favorite mystery-solving blone, Betty Cooper, trains for the FBI, but we don't know what's happened between her and Jughead. The one major plot of the cinephile videos still looms over our heads, and the trailer for sure only baited our curiosity. It's about to be an intense season for sure. The dynamics of the characters will change as usual, and that's what fans are waiting on. Here is what the premiere episode has in store for us.
