Riverdale is one of the most popular drama mystery series that is available to watch on Netflix. The showrunners recently revealed that the cast of the show has reunited in Canada to resume the shooting of season 5 which was halted due to the pandemic. The showrunners may have also revealed a big spoiler about one of the main characters dying in the upcoming episodes.
According to the tweet and pictures shared by show maker Roberto Aguirre Sacasa, one of the main characters may die in the upcoming episodes. And from the pictures, it seems like it would be the redhead, Archie. Roberto revealed that the cast of the show is doing table reads via Zoom.
He further revealed that in the show, the characters would be saying goodbye to high school and would be moving on to the next phase of their lives. The picture shared by Roberto showed that in the 80th chapter of the show is titled Purgatory. The picture further depicted Jughead, Betty and Veronica mourning at a grave and an image of Archie in an Army helmet is floating in the sky.
What could this possibly mean? Could this mean that Archie will die in this upcoming season? In several episodes, Archie had mentioned that he wants to join the Naval Academy after graduation. The Army helmet could mean that he dies in combat.
Riverdale’s upcoming season is set to give a time jump and it is expected to take a leap in years. So the cast would be portraying the characters closer to their actual age than a bunch of high school kids. However, from the pictures of the scripts, it seems like Archie would not be a part of the new season.
