Fans will also get to meet Veronica’s husband Chad. He will be a neurotic and controlling man who works on the Wall Street. But that’s not just it. He would be involved in some shady deals with life threatening situations. It would be interesting to watch Veronica deal with these issues.
The casting calls indicate that the characters would have left their high school way behind them. Showrunner Roberto Aguirre – Sacasa revealed that the fifth season was supposed to begin with the time skip. But now the unaired episodes from season 4 will be aired first.
When will we get to see Season 5?
The show is set to return with its fifth installment in January next year. The pandemic crisis has disrupted the show’s annual production timeline.
In The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Lili Reinhart revealed that the fifth season’s filming hasn’t begin yet.
