With season 5 of Riverdale being in pre-production, casting calls have gone on for the new roles which revealed the fates of your favorite Riverdull characters during the 5 year time jump.
[spoilers inside]Veronica: She is married to Chad Gekko, who is described as "controlling and neurotic and works on Wall Street. Though charming, his failed Ponzi scheme and shady deals with her father Hiram reveal his moral duplicity, putting Chad’s life in danger." For the 5 people who watched the spinoff Katy Keene, it's the same Chad who appeared on that show, but looks like they are recasting the role.
Jughead: Well, he has a new girlfriend named Jessica who is described "a train-wrecky hipster. Jessica is Jughead’s live-in girlfriend who makes no secret of the fact that she’s done with their relationship, since she can see that she’s not as important to him as the book he’s not writing."
Archie: Joined the army during the 5 year jump but has now returned to Riverdale to run the fire department with an army buddie name Eric who lost his leg and suffered third degree burns while fighting in the Army.
No information about Betty.
There is also a casting call for a new series regular character of Tabita Tate, who is the ambitious, entrepreneurial granddaughter of Pop Tate and has plans to turn Pop’s Chock’lit Shoppe into a franchise diner, even within the dying town of Riverdale.
