Riverdale season 6 update: Will there be a new season? When is it coming out? And More

Out of all The CW shows that are available on Netflix, it’s hard to argue that Riverdale isn’t one of the most talked-about shows from the teen drama champions of TV. Many fans are more than looking forward to finding out anything they can about Riverdale season 6.

The Archie comic reboot is a crime drama mystery that follows modern versions of their favorite characters navigating the struggles of romance, school, and family. Each exciting entry of Riverdale has Archie and the gang entangled in the dark mysteries surrounding the titular location in what has resulted in every set of installments garnering solid Rotten Tomatoes scores.

It has been a while since new episodes of The CW show have come out and been made available on the streaming service. It’s no secret that the demand for more Archie adventures is at an all-time high leading many to wonder when will Riverdale season 6 air, and more importantly, when will it be available on Netflix?

For those out there looking for answers, located below is everything fans need to know when it comes to the Riverdale season 6 release date and more.

How many seasons of Riverdale are there?

There are five seasons of Riverdale right now. The fifth season premiered on January 20, 2021, and is currently halfway through the season.

Unfortunately, Riverdale season 5 doesn’t return on Netflix until Aug. 11, 2021, so we’ll have to wait until at least the fall to see season 5 on Netflix.

Is there going to be a season 6 of Riverdale?

According to Variety, Riverdale, along with a number of other CW shows, scored an early renewal. On Feb. 3, 2021, it was announced that Riverdale season 6 was officially happening to the delight of fans everywhere.

How many episodes of Riverdale season 6 are there?

No official word has come out about how many entries Riverdale season 6 will contain. Seasons 4 consisted of 19 episodes while season 5 will be either 20 or 22 episodes, so something in that range may very well be the case for the sixth highly-anticipated chapter of the drama fantasy CW show.

The first season only had13 episodes, while the next two outings contained 22 entries. So it also might be wise if one had to guess to stick to a number in between those counts for Riverdale season 6.

When is Riverdale season 6 filming?

It doesn’t seem like a production date has been set for Riverdale season 6 yet. Once season 5 finishes airing, news of when season 6 of Riverdale, as far as filming goes, will probably become available.

Riverdale season 6 release date

There has been no release date set in stone or even announced for Riverdale season 6 at this time, and many fans should be patient regarding the timetable as to when this intel could emerge. It will probably remain an unsolvable mystery for some time, and it’s more than likely that any indication regarding the release of episodes of the sixth installment will arrive toward the end or well after the season 5 finale occurs.

There is a chance that the show could come out sometime in late 2021, but it seems like a better guess would be, at least in terms of plausibility in this uncertain time for TV production due to the COVID-19 pandemic, that Riverdale season 6 will most likely come out at some point in 2022.

When is Riverdale season 6 on Netflix?

All signs point to Riverdale season 6, barring any unforeseen setbacks, coming to Netflix at some point in 2022. The exact date is unknown, and it’s kind of hard to determine where on the calendar year it could end up coming out, especially with season 5 not ending until the fall of 2021. There’s bound to be a gap of some length between seasons, but we don’t know how big that gap will be.

Until a release date and schedule is put out, it will be hard to figure out exactly when the sixth outing of The CW series will be on the streaming service. As previously stated, the new installments usually arrive a week after the season finale airs, which is what should happen with Riverdale season 6.
