The first official trailer for Riverdale Season 5 has arrived, with the new season premiering Wednesday, January 20 on The CW.
If you can’t remember where Riverdale left off — and it’s been so long, who can blame you? — there are some weird videos going around with people wearing masks that look like classic Archie Comics characters. The new season will finish those storylines and feature the character’s Prom and Graduation before skipping ahead several years in the story. There’s a lot going on here — including “Barchie” and a not so happy response from Veronica!
Here’s that trailer:
Season five of RIVERDALE will begin with our characters’ final days as students at Riverdale High. From an epic Senior Prom to a bittersweet Graduation, there are a lot of emotional moments and goodbyes yet to come—with some couples breaking up, as everyone goes their separate ways to college—or elsewhere. Then, we will redock with our gang as young adults, all returning to Riverdale to escape their troubled pasts. And life—and romance—will only be more complicated now that they’re in their twenties…
