The CW has released a preview for "Chapter Seventy-Six: Killing Mr. Honey", the nineteenth episode of Riverdale's fourth season. As the title would suggest, the episode is sure to take a bizarre turn for Principal Honey (Kerr Smith), the principal who has been terrorizing the students of Riverdale High throughout this season. While details surrounding the episode suggest that it will be framed around a short story created by Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse), it will be interesting to see just how much of it ends up being real -- and what ramifications it has on the show going forward.
The episode will serve as the show's Season 4 finale, after production on the series was shut down last month due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Riverdale was one of the first of The CW's shows to shut down production, after a crew member came into contact with somebody who tested positive for the coronavirus.
"We are working closely with the appropriate authorities and health agencies in Vancouver (where they shoot) to identify and contact all individuals who may have come into direct contact with our team member," a representative for Warner Bros. said at the time.
Riverdale isn't the only The CW series to face this setback, with The Flash, Supernatural, Legacies, and Nancy Drew all confirming that they won't be able to resume filming until later this year.
