Riverdale season 5’s final episodes could reunite Archie Andrews and Betty Cooper once again.
This pleasing revelation arrives via executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who recently told TVLine that KJ Apa and Lili Reinhart’s characters are about to share “more than just a glance at each other as we head into these last few episodes”.
“In our minds, Betty and Archie’s story didn’t end in episode 8, when they decided they just were going to be friends,” he added. “That story isn’t over, and we do pick back with it before the end of the season.”
As fans of the US teen drama will be aware, the new seven-year time jump reduced the former couple to merely friends (well, with benefits), but we’re all crossing our fingers that normal service will eventually resume between them.
Elsewhere on Riverdale, Ashleigh Murray’s aspiring singer Josie McCoy just made a surprise return after a couple of years away in the Big Apple.
“Roberto pitched the idea to me as a chance to give Josie some closure because at that point, prior to shooting this episode, we’d only seen Josie in her childhood and then in her very young adulthood on Katy Keene,” she recalled. “And in each of those places, she was struggling and striving to become a superstar.
“Unfortunately, after the cancellation of Katy Keene, we didn’t get to explore her making her dream come true, so this episode idea came about as an option to pay some homage to the Katy Keene years that we lost and also be able to pay proper homage to who Josie is in the comic books, which is a superstar.”
Riverdale‘s fifth season will conclude on October 6, but we won’t have to wait long for the next instalment, as season six will premiere with a special five-week miniseries on November 16.
Riverdale airs on The CW in the US. In the UK, you can stream via Netflix.
