Update April 2020
Riverdale Season 5 will be released in October 2020, although while Riverdale will be returning for Season 5, CW has not given a precise air date. Fans ought not to expect a update at any point in the near future either, given that the momentum season is as yet running. Every season of Riverdale always releases in October as a rule. So fans should anticipate October 2020 release for season 5 according to theories and speculation. Except if nothing changes, UK watchers will get Riverdale Season five on Netflix consistently, coming one day after the USA release.
Be that as it may, the release will likewise rely upon to what extent the COVID-19 pandemic affects the show business. At present, it is unimaginable to expect to film new scenes. The more extended the episode goes on, all things considered, Season 5 could be deferred for a couple of months.
