The long-awaited new installment opens on January 20 on CW.
An important novelty will take place in the fifth season of Riverdale on the occasion of the actual pregnancy of one of its actresses. As confirmed by Vanessa Morgan herself , the one in charge of playing Toni from the second installment of the series, her pregnancy in real life will be introduced into the plots by the series team led by Roberto Aguire-Sacasa .
I am very grateful to the ‘showrunner’ and producers for accommodating my pregnancy and writing my pregnancy on the series. I am also proud of my body, for allowing me to continue working until almost nine months of pregnancy. Now is the time to have a baby
The news that Toni is going to have a baby leads one to think about the love relationship that Morgan’s character has had with Cheryl Blossom ( Madelaine Petsch ) since the fourth season and what the young woman’s pregnancy will mean for their courtship. However, the issue should not necessarily be problematic, since, as had already been announced the fifth installment of Riverdale will experience a time arc of several years. Thus, if it turns out that Toni and Cheryl are still together, they could well have decided to start a family. We will have to see.
Despite the seven-year jump in time, the creator of the series has ensured that we will meet again with the protagonists at the prom, an episode that was scheduled to air at the end of the previous installment but was delayed by the pandemic inevitably.
