“Riverdale” fans can finally watch season 4 finals on Netflix. A fifth season has already been confirmed – but when does it appear? After several months, the finale of season 4 of “Riverdale” is finally available on Netflix.
If you don’t actively follow the series, you may be surprised about the long runtime, since the season started in autumn 2019. There is a simple reason for this: Netflix releases a new episode of the series every week.
This year the broadcast was even longer because the creators of “Riverdale” also felt the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. Fans are now wondering when they can count on the start of the 5th season of “Riverdale”.
But that is not the only question that many are currently dealing with. Some viewers may experience confusion after the 19th episode of season 4. The reason: Although it is the final episode of the season, it feels as if the storyline has not yet been completed.
The screenwriters of the series are often assumed to be negligent, but this time it is not their fault: Due to the coronavirus pandemic, season 4 had to be ended prematurely.
In truth, the season should have 22 episodes. In the short term, the makers decided on 19 episodes, which is why there wasn’t enough time to bring the current story to a conclusive end.
The remaining three episodes have not been completely canceled, however, because instead, they start the planned 5th season. If everything goes according to plan, the new season will start in October 2020.
However, the coronavirus still affects production because the shoots have not yet been able to continue. So fans should expect delays indefinitely.
The trailer for Riverdale Season 5 has not yet been released by The CW. Usually, we can see a preview of the new season during San Diego Comic-Con, which takes place in July.
Sadly, SDCC was canceled this year, so we have no idea when we will see the trailer. We will see the new season as soon as production begins and there is enough material to put the trailer together.
