With Riverdale officially seven years in the future, the gang have returned to town to get Riverdale back to how they once knew it. The CW has released new photos for season 5, episode 6, “Chapter Eighty-Two: Back to School,” and as the title suggests, it’s time to go back to Riverdale High!
A description for next week’s episode was recently released, and it seems the Core Four will be joining Toni and Kevin as teachers at their former high school. The full description for “Chapter Eighty-Two: Back to School” reads:
“BULLDOG PRIDE — Archie (KJ Apa), Betty (Lili Reinhart), Veronica (Camila Mendes), and Jughead (Cole Sprouse) prepare for their first day as Riverdale High’s newest teachers. Veronica introduces her husband Chad (guest star Chris Mason) to the group after he shows up unexpectedly in Riverdale. After realizing they are out of funds, Archie and Toni (Vanessa Morgan) turn to Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) for help restarting the football and cheer teams. Finally, Betty, Kevin (Casey Cott), and Alice (Mädchen Amick) follow a lead after learning that Polly (guest star Tiera Skovbye) may be in trouble. Mark Consuelos, Charles Melton, and Drew Ray Tanner also star. Gabriel Correa directed the episode written by Ariana Jackson (#506). Original airdate 2/24/2021.”
The new photos show the gang adjusting to their new lives as Riverdale High teachers, including Reggie, who is the football coach at what seems to be Stonewall Prep. Chad has also made his way to Riverdale. Check out the photos below!
