Riverdale season 5 has started filming on the set, and the creators have ordered six episodes that will make up the installment. This event occurs after the six-month break in the production process, which was caused by the fatal Corona Virus and the pandemic caused by it.
Also, it is believed that the series will be true to itself in the new season. The proof of this aforementioned statement is that the creator, Roberto Aguirre Sacasa, has posted on his personal social media platforms a picture of the very first scene, which was shot for Riverdale season 5. In that, we are all able to witness KJ Apa shirtless.

Well, even though the filming has been renewed, fans should not expect Riverdale season 6 to come out until it is 2021 on The CW in the United States as well as France on Netflix, the streaming giant. We will still have to be very calm before figuring out the end of high school as well as all the dramas that are announced by the creator but also before acknowledging more about this potential time jump. The whole cast and crew had to stop back in the middle of March because of COVID-19. As of right now, filming has officially renewed with stars such as KJ Apa, Lili Reinhart, Cole Sprouse, and Camila Mendes. This was done on the 14th of September 2020 in Vancouver, Canada.
We also have seen Lili Reinhart, also known as Betty Cooper, who was kidding about how she gained weight during this lockdown period in an interview, and after that, we can see hoe definitely KJ Apa did not stop the sport. If you seek proof for it, you already have it in the form of the first image of the shooting of Riverdale season 5. Roberto Aguirre Sacasa posted on the gram about Riverdale being back in action while Archie is in Sauna. He says that even in the world of COVID-19, some stuff like these does not change.

The character of Toni Topaz, who has denied all inequality allegations in the series while the Black Lives Matter movement is right now, six months pregnant, and no one knows what is going to happen to her character in the rest of the show. Fans are speculating that maybe the creators will include her pregnancy after this potential time jump.
