The CW left no mystery as to Riverdale‘s status for the 2018/2019 season. Archie and his pals will be back as Riverdale Season 3 has been officially confirmed by the network.
The CW made a rare move in announcing that 10 of its original shows had all been picked up for new seasons. The network is also expanding its programming lineup to a sixth day of originals with the intention of launching a primetime block on Sundays.
Riverdale has become one of the network’s flagship programs. The show is a ratings hit with the younger demo and saw huge ratings increases from season 1 to season 2, in large part due to the show being available on streaming services like Netflix. The series debuted as a midseason show in 2017 and quickly earned a renewal for the fall. The network also picked up a Riverdale spinoff series featuring a familiar face, Sabrina The Teenage Witch (you can read more about that show here).
Riverdale Season 3 Release Date
The Riverdale Season 3 premiere date is Wednesday, October 10!
Riverdale Season 3 Cast
Based on characters from Archie Comics, Riverdale follows Archie Andrews (KJ Apa) and his friends Jughead (Cole Sprouse), Betty (Lili Reinhart), and Veronica (Camila Mendes) as they navigate young adulthood amid the lies and secrecy of a seemingly picturesque town with a seedy underbelly.
Riverdale will be adding a few new series regulars to its cast in Season 3. According to TV Insider, Vanessa Morgan (Toni Topaz) and Charles Melton (Reggie) have been promoted to series regulars for the third season of the CW soap.
