Camila stayed warm in a short black jacket which she wore over a black hoodie and a pair of black sweatpants.

Her dog Truffle was also prepared for the chilly day thanks to a cute gray sweater vest she wore.
Madelaine, who plays Cheryl Blossom on Riverdale, was dressed similarly to her costar with a longer hooded puffer coat.

Time jump: They’re currently filming season five, which included three episodes intended for season four that weren’t filmed due to the pandemic. Now the show has jumped seven years into the future; still from Riverdale season five
The actors are currently filming the show’s fifth season, which began airing in late January.
The first three episodes of the season wrapped up the events of season four, as the emergence of the coronavirus pandemic forced the series to put production on hold.
Now, the show has jumped ahead seven years in time, when the principle characters have all graduated from high school and have mostly fallen out of touch until a new mystery reunites them.
Earlier in February, Camila appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to chat about the series, where she revealed that she hopes Riverdale goes out on the same high note that the Disney Channel’s High School Musical did.

She described the three-film series as ‘the best cinematic trilogy of all time’ and applauded the series from graduating from two TV movies to a feature film that was shown in theaters for the third and final entry.
‘They made it a full cinematic experience. It went to theaters. It wasn’t just on Disney Channel, it was in theaters, because it was like their big graduation, you know?’ she explained.
‘Saying goodbye to the franchise and all the characters, and the music was next level… We were all watching it like, “Is this what it’s going to be like when Riverdale is over?” I hope they do the same thing, like we all jump into the air and freeze frame.’
Going dark: Riverdale airs on The CW and premiered in 2017. It’s based on Archie Comics characters, but it takes a darker tone than the comics and focuses on crime and mysteries affecting the characters
