Riverdale: Archie and the gang go to the primary promenade in season 5-2021
January is officially prom season on Riverdale. (Hey it’s been a weird year okay?)
TVLine has an exclusive look at the first few photos from the season 5 premiere of the CW teen drama (airing Wednesday, January 20 at 8/7 a.m.), with Archie and his classmates from Riverdale High at their prom in Tuxedo and robe look sharp. (The prom episode was originally scheduled to air in season 4 but has been pushed back by the coronavirus pandemic.) Our favorite couples are all there, including Archie and Veronica, who share a cute, slow dance in the photo above.
In more photos from prom nights below, we also see Cheryl and Toni in a loving hug, Kevin with his arm around Fangs and a toast to the whole gang – and hey, in the background is Katy Keene’s KO Kelly (Zane Holtz)? (Yes, series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa made it clear earlier this year that Holtz would be making a crossover appearance in Riverdale.) We also see Veronica’s parents Hiram and Hermione sharing a dance … along with FP and Alice!
The Riverdale teens will also put on their hats and gowns for their graduation at the beginning of season five, followed by a leap in time that will pick up again a few years later when the show’s young characters reunite after college split.
