Riverdale is coming back for season 4! We’re expecting to see new episodes of Riverdale season 4 on The CW and Netflix (Non-US) this fall.

Riverdale season 3 is coming to Netflix tonight (Thursday, May 23), and fans will be binge-watching the hit teen drama/mystery over the next few days. After watching the season finale, fans will also be wondering when Riverdale season 4 will be released, and that’s where we can help!

Riverdale has already been renewed for season 4 at The CW, and at the time of publishing, it looks like the season 4 premiere will be in the first or second week of October 2019. The CW has not announced the full schedule yet, but that’s when new seasons of the big CW shows always premiere.

New episodes of the series air on The CW on Wednesday at the 8 p.m. timeslot. We expect this will stay the same for season 4.

So, you’ll have to wait the full summer and into the first part of fall to see new episodes of the hit series like the rest of us.

More from Riverdale

New episodes of Riverdale season 4 will also be released on Netflix around the world the day after episodes air on The CW. It’s been like this since the beginning of the series when Netflix acquired the international distribution rights for the series. That means, technically, the series is a Netflix original series outside of the US. It also means Netflix users outside the US get to watch the full season before Netflix users in the US, and that’s because US subscribers also have the option to watch the show weekly on The CW.

Of course, Riverdale season 4 is also coming to Netflix. We learned that The CW-Netflix deal expired this spring, but that’s not going to affect Riverdale’s status on Netflix for some time, like years.

Season 4 will be released on Netflix US eight days after the season finale airs on The CW. We don’t know when that will be, but it’ll likely be some time in the spring of 2020. Stay tuned!

As of May 23, all episodes of the series will be on Netflix where available! We hope you enjoy the new season.
