“Riverdale” Starts Filming its Fifth Season in Vancouver


“Riverdale” officially resumed the filming of its fifth season in Vancouver (Canada) on 14 September (Monday). To celebrate this occasion, series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa posted a photo with Camila Mendes, Lili Reinhart, Madelaine Petch and Cole Sprouse on his official Instagram.

“After fourteen days of quarantining 🇨🇦 and months of prep, #Riverdale Season 5 starts shooting tomorrow. Spent the night in the bubble, reminiscing with these lovely people and celebrating @lilireinhart 24th birthday. How time flies. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the gang this week. Here we go,” posts Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.

“Riverdale” shut down its production back in March at the end of season 4 due to the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic. The current work is done under strict safety guidelines, including self-isolation for two weeks before filming, social distance maintenance and PPE usage.

The fifth season of “Riverdale” is set to premiere in January 2021 on the CW, however, the exact date has yet to be provided.
