The teenage era! Over the years, shows like Riverdale and Heartstopper have found their fanbases by telling stories set in high school.In 2017, viewers were introduced to the iconic characters from Archie Comics as they investigated their small town amid a mysterious murder.

Even though the main group of friends were established students at Riverdale High, the CW series followed the lead of other teen drama before them by choosing to introduce a time jump ahead of season 5.According to creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the writers and the cast were excited to explore the possibilities outside of the classroom.“We did decide very quickly because all of the kids were seemingly going to different colleges and we didn’t want them to all to go to, like, Riverdale University.

And in terms of drama, for me, college is a less appealing version of high school stories,” he told Entertainment Weekly in February 2021. “In terms of what we’re most excited about is that after four seasons of pretty elaborate, complicated storytelling, this time jump allows us to start with a clean slate, drop in the middle of stories and then have people catch up.”The screenwriter noted that the show shakeup allowed for them to introduce “new dynamics” starting in season 6. “Now it’s not just Betty in scenes with Jughead, now it’s not just Cheryl and Toni in scenes together,” Aguirre-Sacasa added. “That’s what’s been exciting for the actors too, they’re really excited about playing characters closer to their age.”At the time, the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina creator highlighted the work that went into keeping the main characters familiar to the fans.“We have tried to honor who the characters were when we first met them.
