Okay, obviously there's the bad news to start things off- just so we can tear off the band-aid quickly. By now, you know that The CW's Riverdale has had to go back into production on its fifth season- which means viewers have to put the adrenaline-fueled drama on pause for a little bit. That said, between deadly children, stabbings, shootings, arson, marital woes, serial killers, drug trips, prison breaks, and vigilante justice? No one can say that the show hasn't given its fanbase enough to chew over between now and then. And thanks to series star Vanessa Morgan (Toni Topaz), we're getting a great reminder that the team's back at work- with Morgan bringing a much-needed jolt of cuteness and sunshine onto the set in the form of her baby boy, River.

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…
