Riverdale is getting a new resident. Insatiable‘s Erinn Westbrook will be joining the steamy mystery CW drama for its fifth season as a series regular, Deadline has exclusively confirmed. Westbrook will play Tabitha Tate, “the ambitious, entrepreneurial granddaughter of Pop Tate, who has to come to Riverdale to take over Pop’s Chock’lit Shoppe in the hopes of franchising the iconic diner, even as the town around it struggles to survive.”
Riverdale recently began production on season five after delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The previous season fell just three episodes short when production shut down back in March and those three will begin the upcoming season. After that, the series will move seven years forward.
Westbrook can currently be seen in a recurring role on FOX’s medical drama The Resident and also portrayed Magnolia on both seasons of Netflix’s Insatiable. She also completed a run of Clueless, The Musical on Broadway and appeared on Awkward, Glee, and Jane the Virgin.
Season five of Riverdale is set to premiere in early 2021 on The CW, but you can watch all four seasons now on Netflix.
