CW announced that the hit series Riverdale will end after season 7. The announcement came in advance of The CW’s Upfront presentation and executive call.
The series was renewed for Season 7 back in March with existing CW shows like The Flash, All American, Kung Fu, and Walker. The long-running season was finally coming to the end. The streamers recently canceled the shows ‘Legends of Tomorrow‘ after seven seasons and ‘Dynasty’ after five seasons and ‘Legacies’ after four seasons.
Riverdale series is based on the characters of Archie Comics. The series was adapted for The CW by Archie Comics’ chief creative officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and is produced by Warner Bros. Television and CBS Studios, in association with Berlanti Productions and Archie Comics.
The series features an ensemble cast based on the characters of Archie Comics, with KJ Apa in the role of Archie Andrews, Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper, Camila Mendes as Veronica Lodge, and Cole Sprouse as Jughead Jones, the series’ narrator.
The sixth season of RIVERDALE begins with a special five-episode event arc entitled “RIVERVALE.” Picking up where season five ended, with Archie (KJ Apa) and Betty (Lili Reinhart) deciding to give their romantic relationship another shot, just as a bomb planted by Hiram Lodge (Mark Consuelos) under Archie’s bed was about to go off. Strangely, that bomb seemingly doesn’t explode, and when Archie and Betty wake up the next morning, they’re living in the town of Rivervale, their lives in Riverdale but a distant dream. It’s hard to believe, but things in Rivervale are much darker and creepier than in Riverdale. There are ghosts, curses, witches, demons, human sacrifices, and special guest stars galore — including a visit from everybody’s favorite twenty-something witch, Sabrina Spellman (guest star Kiernan Shipka).
