Something is happening in Riverdale as Betty, Archie, Jughead and Veronica venture on a new journey to seek the truth of the hidden secrets in their town, while getting prepared for their senior year of Riverdale High, they return for the fifth season where more drama and secrets unravel.

However, before we go into season five of Riverdale let’s recap of what went on in season four…

The seasons of Riverdale have included storylines which are very captivating, so when season four entered in May 2020, we had no doubt that Riverdale would blow us away once again.

Season four had various emotive storylines which captured many hearts, it brought entertainment, curiosity, laughter and despair. At the beginning of the season, Riverdale paid tribute to Luke Perry, who played the character Fred Andrews, known as Archie’s dad, which was beautiful.

From this, we saw Archie go through an emotional breakdown, but with the help of his friends, they supported him by telling stories of how heroic his dad was. In the footsteps of his dad, Archie continued to protect his hometown of Riverdale; we saw him set up a community centre for young people and we watched Archie in many ways fight against the crime in his town too. However, in the season the pressure sometimes increased in Archie as he tried to be the hero of the town.
