Riverdale has been away from The CW and Netflix for four long months, leaving fans desperate to know what happens next following the midseason cliffhanger. The fate of Jughead Jones (played by Cole Sprouse) was once again hanging in the balance as he went missing, much to Tabitha Tate’s (Erinn Westbrook) shock. But the wait is almost over as Riverdale is back for the rest of series five.

WARNING: This article contains spoilers from Riverdale.

The last time Riverdale aired was in April for episode 10, The Pincushion Man.

Jughead needed to concentrate and write more of his book in time for his deadline and so he took magic mushrooms which Tabitha cooked into a burger for him, to get his creative juices flowing.

He was even chained to a desk in the underground bunker so he would have no choice but to write.

This didn’t go according to plan when Tabitha went to check up on him as Jughead was nowhere to be seen.

The only thing left of him was some of his blood on the handcuffs which remained at the desk.

How many episodes are in Riverdale season 5 part 2?

Riverdale season five, episode 11 will be airing tonight, Wednesday, August 11, on The CW.

This is just for those living in America though as the network can only be reached by those living in the States.

International fans will instead have to wait until tomorrow, Thursday, August 12, for the same episode to be dropped.

Sadly, most likely because of the issues caused by the coronavirus pandemic, season five isn’t going to be as long as the previous series.

Season one has been the shortest series so far with only 13 episodes of Riverdale.

Once the creators and networks realised how popular the show could become, series two and three were made longer with 22 episodes.

As there were constraints around filming with shooting postponed thanks to Covid-19, season four was just 19 episodes long.

According to publication Bustle, Riverdale writer Ted Sullivan has stated that this will also be the case for season five.

This latest series of Riverdale is expected to be made up of 19 episodes in total.

So the series five finale could be shown on Wednesday, October 6, on The CW and on Netflix the following day.

This does, of course, depend on whether or not Riverdale will be taking any more breaks during the next couple of months.

As Riverdale is about to begin, there are plenty of questions that are going to need answering.

The first issue that needs addressing is the whereabouts of Jughead Jones.

After this, there is the disappearance of Betty Cooper’s (Lily Reinhart) sister Polly (Tiera Skovbye) who could have been murdered on the Lonely Highway.

Then there is the relationship of Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes) and Archie Andrews (KJ Apa) which was going well until her controlling soon-to-be husband Chad Gekko (Chris Mason) intervened.

Hopefully, at least some of these issues will be resolved when Riverdale does make a comeback.

Riverdale season 5 will continue tomorrow, Thursday, August 12, on Netflix.
