What will happen in Riverdale season 4?

At San Diego Comic Con 2019, the cast also revealed several new details about season 4, including new characters, details about Halloween, musical and flashback themed episodes. Read the full report of everything they revealed here.

Season 4 saw the Farm storyline come to an end as Betty worked with her brother Charles to locate Edgar Evernever and the Farmies. In episode 3, Alice shot and killed Edgar. Evelyn was arrested.

Fred's death will influence Archie's storyline for the season and he will be focused on honouring his father's legacy. He opens a youth centre in a bid to give back to the community.

The big season 3 cliffhanger involving Jughead's whereabouts was also a huge storyline that was resolved in episode 16. In season 4, Jughead joined a new prep school called Stonewall Prep. Throughout the season, we saw flashbacks hinting that Jughead had been murdered. In episode 4, Jughead was shown to be dead but it turned out to be a plot in order to finally put an end to Mr DuPont, and Donna Sweett's shenanigans.

In other news, Cheryl said an emotional goodbye to her brother's dead corpse and Veronica found out that she has an older half-sister named Hermosa.

Videotapes will also play a big part in the season, as mysterious tapes start showing up on everyone's doorsteps. But who is sending them? And *takes a deep breath* there's still the situation with Chic and Charles... Are they working together? Do they have anything to do with the tapes?
