How many episodes are in Riverdale season 4?

Season 4 will likely run for 22 episodes, much like seasons 2 and 3. Filming for the fourth season began in July and will probably wrap at some point in March/April 2020. The cast are currently filming episode 20 of season 4.

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 appeared to shoot and kill Edgar. It's assumed that Evelyn was arrested.

The big season 3 cliffhanger involving Jughead's whereabouts will also be a huge storyline. It's been reported that the show will address that at some point in the middle of the season and it seems like it will have something to do with Jughead's new school Stonewall Prep. In episode 4, Jughead was shown to be dead but is it real or is it all part of his "perfect murder" assignment?

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

There's also the whole Jason's corpse situation with Cheryl too... After discovering his body at Farm HQ, Cheryl brought him home to Thistlehouse. Madelaine Petsch has also said that Cheryl is at her lowest mentally, and her secret could see her relationship with Toni tested.

Veronica will also find out that she has an older half-sister named Hermosa this season. She'll be played by Mishel Prada and she is very very loyal to Hiram.

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?
