Riverdale season 5 recap

Since Riverdale started in 2017, it has become one of the most followed series around the world.

Today, November 16, 2021, the sixth season of Riverdale comes out on Netflix and, to celebrate this return, let’s recap together the plot and the most important events of the fifth season.

Riverdale season 5 opens with Archie who after 7 years from the events of season 4, returns home for the first time after joining the Army, and discovers that the city is on the verge of becoming a ghost town thanks to Hiram. Then he summons the whole group of friends and they find a way to revive the town; the best way to do that is through Riverdale High.

Veronica marries a boy who resembles her father, while Archie is the same as always; Bettie works in the FBI and Jughead has become a very good writer.

Among the various information given to us by this series, three are probably the most important:

-The true identity of Charles

During episode 2 it is revealed that Charles (Bettie’s brother) is a killer and he’s responsible for the murders of Brett, Joan and David;


-Toni is pregnant

In episode 4 it is revealed to us that Toni is pregnant and, although we do not yet know who the father is, Kevin and Fangs decide to raise the child with Toni, as they all live together;

-Is Polly alive?

Polly, after her major comeback in episode 5, in episode 7 argues with her sister Betty; later she will be chased by a truck. When Betty, Alice and Kevin find Polly’s cell phone, it’s right next to a dead body. Will it be hers? We are not sure because the end of the episode makes us believe that she may be still alive.


In the cast of this new season of Riverdale we will meet again: KJ Apa, Camilla Mendes, Cole Sprouse, Lili Reinhart, Casey Cott and Madelaine Petsch.

New faces are likely to include Drew Ray Tanner and Erinn Westbrook.

News for fans of the witch Sabrina: as already anticipated by the trailer, in this season there will be an episode with Kiernan Shipka in the role of Sabrina Spellman!


With this final news we greet you and wish you a good view of Riverdale season 6.
