What time are Riverdale episodes released in the UK?

What will happen in Riverdale season five?

While the first three episodes will show the characters still at school, the series will jump forward seven years for the remainder of the season.

The prom and graduation are both major events shown in the series, with Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa previously telling TV Line that these would be 'big emotional episodes'.

He added: "There’s a lot of stuff with the characters that we’re still playing out, so it felt like maybe what we’ll do is start with the last three episodes.

"After being with the kids at the high school for four years, you kind of don’t want to take graduation away from them. So what we’re doing is picking up right where we left off for the first three episodes."
