'Riverdale' Gets New Poster Ahead of Season 5 Premiere

Riverdale‘s upcoming fifth season is getting closer and closer!

Ahead of the January premiere, we just got brand new poster for the series, which features stars KJ Apa, Camila Mendes, Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart.

Season five will “begin with our characters’ final days as students at Riverdale High. From an epic Senior Prom to a bittersweet Graduation, there are a lot of emotional moments and goodbyes yet to come—with some couples breaking up, as everyone goes their separate ways to college—or elsewhere.

Then, we will redock with our gang as young adults, all returning to Riverdale to escape their troubled pasts. And life—and romance—will only be more complicated now that they’re in their twenties…”

Earlier in the week, we got some new photos from the prom in the season premiere, and earlier in the month, the trailer for the first part of the season was released.

KJ Apa Shares How They Prep For Kissing Scenes on 'Riverdale' During Pandemic

KJ Apa Shares How They Prep For Kissing Scenes on 'Riverdale' During Pandemic

KJ Apa is opening up about new pandemic protocols on the set of Riverdale!

The 23-year-old actor was on Live with Kelly and Ryan, and was asked about how they are handling kissing scenes these days.

If you didn’t know, some productions have actors kiss with a plexiglass in between them, and edit it out later.

“[We rinse our mouths with] Listerine. They have us come to set a little early, and we have to rinse our mouths for one minute. There’s a guy standing there with a timer, counting down sixty seconds,” KJ said. “And we have to rinse our mouths out before the scene, before every take, for sixty seconds. Apparently it kills all the germs in your mouth, but in my mind, by the time you’ve got your tongue in someone’s mouth, I don’t think it really matters, to be honest.”

KJ also opened up about an on set injury he had during an action sequence, while being directed by Michael Bay on the set of Songbird. Check it out in the video!
