Hopes for the 'Riverdale' Season 5 Time Jump: 9 Dos & Don'ts
The students of Riverdale High are about to — surprisingly, for some — graduate, but the CW drama won't be following them to college.
As many suspected, Riverdale will feature a time jump in Season 5. "What we're doing is picking up right where we left off for the first three episodes, and then doing a time jump ... after those three episodes," executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa confirmed to TVLine.
So we'll get to see prom and graduation — two important rites of passage for seniors — and then the teens will be off to college. The exact time jump has yet to be revealed, but it seems likely that it'll take care of the college years. Though a premiere date has yet to be set, we're already looking ahead to what we do and don't want to see when Season 5 picks up in Episode 4 below.
