There is no lack of fan speculations on account of the Riverdale show makers who have left numerous privileged insights unanswered.
Time Jump- Since the characters are currently high school seniors, a time jump would pick up the story after they've attended and graduated college. It'll be interesting to see how everyone's life shakes out. Will Jughead fulfill his dream of being a writer? Will Betty follow her natural aptitude for crime and forensics? And how will everyone's romantic entanglements shake out after some distance from one another?
Breakups- We're wagering that Archie/Veronica and Betty/Jughead will part, particularly since Archie and Betty are subtly succumbing to one another. The official statement further expresses that after the time hop, the teenagers will come back to Riverdale "to get away from their upset pasts," which is particularly fascinating. One would imagine that leaving Riverdale would escape the past. What occasion would force them all to rejoin?
Actor who will be leaving during Season 5:
Skeet Ulrich, YES!!! u heard that right It's a shocking moment for riverdale fans because Fp jones who played the role of Jughead's father has always been in back of the frame but whenever he steps his shit in, there's something huge. In an instagram live session he said that:
“I’m leaving ‘Riverdale’ because I got bored creatively,” Ulrich said. “How’s that? That’s the most honest answer.”
I had a mind blowing time rejuvenating Hermione Lodge and working with my astonishing cast, who turned out to be family," Nichols said in her own announcement to TVLin "We had such a large number of magnificent occasions together during the most elevated of highs and the least of lows. We truly have the best fans ever. I am anticipating the following section and am amped up for what's to come
Ulrich and co-star Marisol Nichols, who plays Veronica Lodge’s mother, Hermione, announced on February they would not be returning as series regulars for the fifth season of the hit series.
“Part of life in ‘Riverdale’ — and part of growing up — is saying goodbye to people,” said creator and showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa in a statement back in February. “I’m grateful to Skeet and Marisol for their incredible work on the show these last four years, and we all wish them well on their future endeavors. FP and Hermione will never be far from our hearts. And, of course, they’re always welcome back in Riverdale.”
