As the series progresses, the core group have been spending much less time together as their various personal dramas shake up the cast’s dynamic.
Each member of the Riverdale gang has found their own lease on life after the double break-up at the top of the season, but sadly the series is struggling to keep up.
Additionally, it’s also speculated that COVID restrictions have mandated shorter scenes with fewer cast members in order to keep production as safe as possible.
With just eight episodes of the current season left, hopefully the writers can tie everything together in time for a satisfying season finale… though viewers aren’t holding their breath.
Riverdale season 5 continues Wednesdays on The CW and the following Thursday on Netflix.
