It looks like there’s a new resident coming to Riverdale. The series known for its twists and turns is adding another notable face to its already impressive roster. In a tweet on Sept. 29, creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa announced that Erinn Westbrook will be joining Riverdale as Tabitha Tate. But who is she? That’s the question on fans’ minds now as they wait for Season 5 to arrive.
Fans already knew Season 5 was going to be different thanks to the seven-year time jump that will take place in the upcoming season. After prom and graduation, viewers will see the Core Four again when they’re in their mid-20s. While this leap was originally supposed to happen at the start of Season 5, it will take place a few episodes in since Season 4 ended early due to the coronavirus pandemic. So, where does Westbrook fit into the picture? She’s joining the series as the granddaughter of Pop Tate, who owns the beloved Chock’lit Shoppe.
According to Deadline, Tabitha Tate takes over Pop’s diner and is looking to franchise joint. As for what that means for Pop, the jury’s still out but the best guess is she comes into the picture as her grandfather passes away (get your tissues ready in case this theory is correct).
