Archie and the gang are embarking on their senior year. A year that looks to bring more controversy, scandals, and possible murder to the quiet and unassuming town of Riverdale.
Since debuting in 2017, Riverdale has pushed the boundaries of network television by placing the familiar characters of Archie Comics into increasingly outlandish plots involving drugs, sex, cults, and even an underground speakeasy. Season 4 is set to premiere in the fall of 2019, and we’ve got everything you need to know. The first season of Riverdale hit the CW as a midseason addition in January 2017. That first short set of 13 episodes proved so popular that the CW brought the show back as quickly as possible, promoting it to a fall debut for season number two with a full order of 22 episodes. Beginning with season two and into season three, Riverdale led off the CW’s Wednesday night programming, airing at 8 p.m. That’s not broken, so the network isn’t going to fix it:
Riverdale will continue on its fourth season with that same Wednesdays at 8:00-time slot. On June 17, 2019, the official Riverdale Instagram page gave fans the exact date when the show would return: October 9th. It will serve as the lead into a similar “old concept, new approach” mystery show: Nancy Drew.
The popular CW series has had a successful Netflix spin-off with Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and this season’s upcoming Katy Keene.
