The final season will take Jughead Jones, portrayed by Cole Sprouse, and the rest of the Riverdale gang to the 1950s. It seems that Jughead is the only one aware of the predicament, while the others are blissfully living their lives in the ’50s. Lost on how to get back to his own time, Jughead starts looking for solutions. It is only when he meets Tabitha Tate (Erinn Westbrook) that things start to make more sense.
