Riverdale creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa says the show will have a significant time jump in Season 5. The writer and producer said in an interview that the jump will take place early on in the CW series’ fifth season. Riverdale Season 4 ended early due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

Season 5 will pick up with three episodes that were intended for the end of the fourth season. “We’ve been talking and planning on doing a time jump,” Aguirre-Sacasa said. “So what we’re doing is picking up right where we left off for the first three episodes, and then doing a time jump… after those three episodes.”  He also teased a “big mystery” to come, saying, “when we come back in Season 5, we’ll have a very big mystery to unravel and a lot of relationship stuff to sort out,” he said. Aguirre-Sacasa confirmed the time jump will take place after important events like prom and high school graduation in the early episodes. The time jump is expected to cover several years and skip the time when the characters would be separated during college.

Riverdale is based on the Archie Comics comic series. The series stars KJ Apa as Archie Andrews, Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper, Camila Mendes as Veronica Lodge and Cole Sprouse as Jughead Jones.

Singer Bryan Adams Apologizes For His Anti-China Coronavirus Comments

Bryan Adams is apologizing for comments he made on Instagram about the origins of the coronavirus. The 60-year-old Canadian singer shared a video of himself performing his 1983 song “Cuts Like a Knife” along with a harsh caption that seemingly had Adams blaming China for the pandemic.

“Thanks to some f—ing bat eating, wet market animal selling, virus making greedy bastards, the whole world is now on hold, not to mention the thousands that have suffered or died from this virus,” he wrote. “My message to them other than ‘thanks a f—ing lot’ is go vegan.”

Adams is one of several vegans who have tried to blame the pandemic on meat-eating, and though the People for the Ethical Treatments of Animals (PETA) released a statement in support of Adams, his comments prompted plenty of online backlash.  Subsequently, Adams posted another video of himself performing “Into the Fire,” and apologized to those who were offended by his original post. “Apologies to any and all that took offense to my posting yesterday,” he wrote. “No excuse, I just wanted to have a rant about the horrible animal cruelty in these wet-markets being the possible source of the virus, and promote veganism. I have love for all people and my thoughts are with everyone dealing with this pandemic around the world.”
