According to showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, production on Riverdale season 6 has just begun.
The CW show, which debuted in 2017 and quickly gained fame, is a dark remake of the Archie comics that pits friends Archie, Veronica, Betty, and Jughead against killers, gangs, illegal drugs, and much more.
Season 5 has already made some of the show’s signature big moves, jumping seven years forward in time after the characters’ high school graduation in episode 3.
Despite the fact that the season hasn’t ended yet, the series is gearing up for a bigger plotline in the near future.
Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa revealed on Instagram that shooting for Season 6 has begun, presenting stunning new artwork along with the announcement.
The artwork highlights the Roman numerals “VI” in the Riverdale logo, which represents a tree with bright blossoms on one side revealing blasted and bare branches on the other while storm clouds gather behind it.
With the caption “Forces are gathering for the ultimiate struggle between Good and Evil as the cameras begin to roll on #Riverdale Season Six,”
