See what the Riverdale actor has to say about the necessary changes required to resume filming in a post-coronavirus world. 

During a recent virtual interview with AP Entertainment, Cole Sprouse, the actor who plays Jughead Jones on the hit CW show Riverdale, shared his two cents on how the coronavirus might affect the filming of future episodes.

“Our show is the exact kind of rubric which is going to come under a scrutinizing lens in terms of how things are gonna to change technically,” he stated. “I mean, the nature of romantic scenes are going to change quite a bit. Kraft service: catering is going to change quite a bit. Interactions with cast and crew are gonna change quite a bit. What kind of stages you’re allowed to shoot in are gonna have to change; the ventilation is going to have to change on a technical level. The amount of background they’re allowed into shots is gonna change quite a bit.”

Sprouse continued: “our show is one of those shows where we are deeply involved with all of the new regulations that are put upon a production cycle. So, I am incredibly interested to see how it works.”

And so are we, but we may need to be a little bit more patient than we had originally planned. Earlier this month, the CW announced that season 5, which was originally projected to be released sometime this fall, has been delayed until January 2021 due to the Pandemic.

When the series does resume, Sprouse and the rest of the Riverdale gang will embark on their final days of high school before the characters take a major time jump into their post-college lives.
