The CW announced today that Riverdale has been picked up for a fifth season. The drama is currently airing Season 4, and will return from its midseason hiatus on January 22.

Featuring re-imagined characters from Archie Comics, the noir-style drama follows Archie, Betty, Veronica, and Jughead in their high school years as they deal not only with issues in each of their personal lives, but also with the aftermath of multiple murders in their small town.

Riverdale continues to be a decent performer for the network, though its current ratings aren't what they once were.

Look for Season 5 in the fall.
