Riverdale time jump

Creator of Riverdale, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has revealed plans for a big time jump early in season five.

It's believed their plan is to skip the period of time where the characters are separated after they head off to college.

This time jump will also give the actors a chance to play characters closer to their own ages.

The exact length of the time jump hasn't yet been confirmed, but according to TV Line, it's expected to cover several years.

It was originally planned to take place near the end of the fourth season.

However, due to the current global pandemic, they ended the latest installment earlier than expected.

Aguirre-Sacasa told TV Line, 'We’ve been talking and planning on doing a time jump.'

He admitted, 'Of course, usually time jumps happen in between seasons, because there’s a tease at the very end.'

For that reason, they've decided to feature the time jump a couple episodes into the fifth installment.
