‘Riverdale’ will run for a season 4, as confirmed in January by the American Television Network Channel CW.
The teen drama returns to The CW on Wednesday, October 9. While we can’t wait to see what happens to Archie, Betty, Veronica, and Jughead, here is everything you need to know about the forthcoming season.
1 – The executive producer and showrunner briefed, that the popular teen drama will feature a tribute to cast member ‘Luke Perry’, who died at the age of 52 in March, suffering a stroke. It would be interesting to see how the series will specifically address the character’s (Archie’s Father’s) absence.
2 – Netflix producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has revealed that there will be a super exciting episode during Halloween, leaking a shocker owing to one of the cast member’s death in the new season. Already sweating which of your fav persona will bite the dust?
3 – Actor Casey Cott who plays Kevin Keller has tipped the first secrets to the fourth season in an interview, saying that Season 4 should be quite different than its predecessors. He revealed that the fourth season is again more similar to the first season. After facing much criticism about the third season being a bit haywire, chances are ‘Riverdale’, will return to its roots.
4 – On a nostalgic trip on the 5th of October. There will be a very special episode this season: a full episode in memory of the late ‘Riverdale’ star Luke Perry.
5 – After the heartbreaking loss of ‘Luke Perry’, Molly Ringwald returned to the show as Archie’s mom, Mary, while Archie’s dad was ‘away on a trip’. Although the show has yet to address the heartbreaking loss, Mary will most likely step in as more of an active parent for Archie. Hence, Mary will foresee-ably take on a bigger role in season 4.
