The Archie comic adaptation, ‘Riverdale’, became an instant hit when it came out. The first two seasons were subjects of critical praise and love from the audience. The series, which was originally planned as a movie by the Warner Bros, follows the adventures of Archibald Andrews, a high-school football player, in his hometown of Riverdale as he discovers the diabolic in the darkness. The show has constantly made it to the Saturn awards, despite not raking in Golden Globes or Emmys. The near-perfect score on Google reviews and a 7.7 on IMDb, though, tells a different story.

Riverdale Season 3 Cast: Who’s in it?

The main cast of the show remained intact for season 3. The core characters Archie Andrews (played by KJ Apa), Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes), Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse) and Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) were back, including the supporting cast that was seen in the previous seasons. While no substantial new entries were announced for the season, with Riverdale, one can always expect a twist in the tale. There is a popular spoiler theory going on that indicates that Archie might get killed by Hiram and hence, will not return in the upcoming season. We’ll update the page as we hear more.

The stereotyping of Cheryl Blossom’s character has received flak from commentators. Many love the character and feel she is hard done by. Allegations of character-troping have been thrown about. As the season comes to a stop, there’s a general prayer that goes out for the character of Blossom to live and come back again.

Riverdale Season 3 Plot: What is it about?

While the third season has already seen gut-wrenching twists, the storyline of the fourth season will definitely materialize on how season 3 concludes. The first season, which had 13 episodes in total, was a huge success and certainly set the tone for the series. The neo-noir elements of the show complimented a taut-storyline, give it an atmospheric feel and are the reasons for its wild popularity. Another reason for its favour with the teen population is its simplicity and deftness in portraying adolescence and teenhood, dividing time equally presenting the problems and the happier moments. In Archie, we have the quintessential-reliable guy everyone is freaked out of. Betty Cooper, on the other hand, is symbolic of us, the teens who never could have their crushes. The mystery at the core of the first season is the death of Jason Bloom. Through a myriad of twists and turns, it is eventually revealed that Clifford murdered Jason, something which was not expected by the audience. Even some critics were taken aback by the twist and expressed surprise.

In season 3, we see that a mass seizure strikes the Riverdale vixen squad but spares Cheryl who can be seen asking Toni to move in. Hiram is planning to shut down Riverdale High and Veronica learns about this and the fact that drugs have been pouring in from the prison that Hiram is overseeing the construction of. We also see Jughead and Archie meeting up with Gladys (mother) and Jellybean (sister) and learn about Hiram’s intention to take over the town. Archie takes it upon himself to prevent it. Further drama unfolds and RROTC is brought in to prevent Riverdale’s closing down but the town has already shut down before they arrive. It is quarantined and blocked off. A teaser for the upcoming episodes has fans thinking that Hiram might get killed by Archie. There is still time to go before Riverdale season 3 ends.

Season 4 would pick up from where season 3 ends. Not much has been said about its plot so far and its unclear as to which direction it will take in the upcoming season. We might just have to wait and find out.

Riverdale Season 4 Release Date: When will it premiere?

While there was initially confusion and ambiguity regarding the release of the third season, despite season 2 bringing in record audience, Netflix stepped in to clear the doubts and confirmed that the show was given a green light. When the second season went on a mid break after the ninth episode, fans were angry and vented out their frustrations. Riverdale Season 3 premiered on 10th October 2018 as was confirmed on Archie Comics’ Official Twitter Account,

The air date of the final episode of season 3 is unknown. The most recent episode aired on January 16, 2019. We have little news at this point regarding Riverdale’s fourth season. Considering the success of the show, it is very likely that it will get renewed for another season. If it gets renewed, we can expect an October 2019 release like its previous seasons.
