With season 5 still not complete, we can’t really predict what the plot of Season 6 is going to be. Obviously, Season 6 will continue from where Season 5 ends and it looks like we will have to wait for it to complete before we can make any predictions. Regardless of what happens, we are sure that Season 6 will focus more on Betty and Archie’s relationship. Fans have also been shipping Betty with Jughead and Veronica with Archie. Let’s see whether the producers agree with these fan-loved couples and somehow bring them together!
Riverdale Season 6 Trailer
Unfortunately, the producers still haven’t revealed a trailer for Riverdale Season 6. However, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the show’s creator, gave us a tiny tease of Season 6 in his latest post. His post said “ Really excited about our next batch of episodes. They’re some of the best we’ve done. And after that, a break. And after that…,” along with a bunch of emojis including fire, tornado, alien head, and a wedding ring. His post also included a photo of the cast with everyone in it except Cole Sprouse. After his disappearance in the middle of season 5, this seems extremely suspicious! Will Jughead never come back? Or is his disappearance just temporary? Looks like we will have to wait till November to find out!
