Calling all Riverdale fans — this is the best news ever! On Tuesday, January 7, the hit CW series was renewed for a fifth season. Yep, that’s right, Archie and the gang will officially be moving on from Riverdale High and taking their mystery-solving skills to college when season five premieres in late 2020.
“This town never runs out of mysteries. [Riverdale] has been renewed for Season 5!” the show’s Instagram account captioned a full cast photo, announcing the exciting news to followers.
Naturally, the show’s cast was just as excited about season five as their fans. Some of the Riverdale stars took to their own social media accounts to post sweet messages about the show’s renewal.

For those who don’t know, with each new episode of Riverdale, it becomes increasingly clear to viewers that the series’ most beloved beanie-wearing character might not be making it out of the most current season alive.
