Wednesday is bringing some significant updates within the world of Riverdale, between the airing of a new episode and the news that the series will take a major hiatus later this year. If that wasn't enough, The CW has now released a batch of photos for "Chapter Eighty-Three: Fire in the Sky", the seventh episode of the series' fifth season. The photos provide a bit of a look at the new status quo of Riverdale, as Archie Andrews (K.J. Apa) and his friends attempt to rebuild the town after seven years away. Namely, this will include Corporal Eric Jackson (Sommer Carbuccia), an Army buddy of Archie's who appeared in the first time jump episode, "Purgatorio."
There's also Star Vixen (AC Bonifacio), a new member of the River Vixens, which appear to be overseen by Toni Topaz (Vanessa Morgan).
You can check out the synopsis for "Chapter Eighty-Three: Fire in the Sky" below, and keep scrolling to check out the photos from the episode!
