[Update 9/3/2020 3:27 pm]: Lili Reinhart tweeted out a day after her interview with Nylon went live, saying that her words were "taken out of context YET AGAIN."
"I’m not complaining about going back to work, I’m incredibly grateful to have a job," she clarified. "I’m sad that I can’t see my family for months on end due to travel restrictions. [For f*cks sake], leave me alone."
Love it when my words are taken out of context YET AGAIN. I’m not complaining about going back to work, I’m incredibly grateful to have a job. I’m sad that I can’t see my family for months on end due to travel restrictions. FFS, leave me alone— Lili Reinhart (@lilireinhart) September 3, 2020
"No wonder people think I’m this pissed off girl all the time," she added. "I annoy myself having to speak up about this."

Original story: The cast of Riverdale deserves a big thank you from their fans. Recently, Lili Reinhart, Cole Sprouse, and the rest of the crew have returned to Vancouver where they are quarantining for two weeks before beginning production on season five. But because of COVID, in order to keep the cast and crew safe, they are all required to stay in Vancouver until Christmas.
"I genuinely feel like a prisoner, going back to work, because I cannot leave Canada," Lili revealed to Nylon. "That doesn't feel good. You can't go home for Thanksgiving, can't visit your family. No one can come visit you unless they quarantine for two weeks. It just feels f*cked."
Lili did admit that she does feel "very lucky," but it is hard because she can't take on any new projects during what would usually be the show's hiatus. "It's like, 'I need to keep going. I need to keep going.'"
Production of Riverdale season five began last month. The cast will finish up the prom and graduation episodes that couldn't make it into season four before a seven-year time jump will find your fave characters out of college and back in Riverdale.
"We're not going to be teenagers anymore," Lili told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon "I'm really psyched about it. I think it'll be nice to play an adult. But I also really appreciate that Roberto [Aguirre-Sacasa], our showrunner, was like, 'Yeah, let's revamp.' You know, we're not just stuck in high school for seven seasons."
As of now, it's unclear when we will be getting the new season, but most likely it won't be until 2021.
