KJ Apa Reveals New Details About 'Riverdale' Post Time Jump!

KJ Apa is spilling some tea on the upcoming fifth season of Riverdale!

The 23-year-old actor, who plays Archie Andrews, revealed some details about his character’s future and the rest of the cast after the seven year time jump.

“I feel like this is the kind of thing the show needed to kind of freshen up all the characters,” he told TV Line. “The new world of Riverdale, now that we are playing older characters, has changed a little bit.”

“We learn that everyone kind of went their separate ways. Archie enlisted in the Army after graduation, and when he returns, after all that time in the Army, he discovers the town is on the verge of becoming a ghost town, thanks to Hiram,” KJ added.

He also dished on Archie bringing everyone else back into town.

“They talk about how they can revive the town again. Archie very much takes the lead on this. He came back and saw Riverdale turning to s–t pretty much, and he’s like, ‘There’s no way I’m going to let this happen.’ So he wrangles the whole team in, and they figure out ways to revive the town, and the best way to do that is through Riverdale High,” he said.

Yeah, it works. It’s ‘Swimming Lessons,’ it’s kind of nostalgic. It’s something you do when you’re young and you’re learning and you’re trying to stay ‘afloat.’”
