When is Riverdale season 4 coming to Netflix? Fans can expect to see the new season on Netflix US in May 2020.
Riverdale season 4 is almost here!
The season premieres on The CW on Wednesday, Oct. 9, 2019. There are tons of fans who watch the series on Netflix, so we wanted to share the release date for Riverdale season 4 on Netflix.
This season stands to be the craziest season yet, especially after that season 3 finale and flashforward. KJ Apa, Cole Sprouse, Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes, Madelaine Petsch, Vanessa Morgan, Charles Melton, and Casey Cott star in the new season, and it’s senior year for many of our favorite characters.
The fourth season kicks off with “In Memoriam,” a tribute episode to Luke Perry who passed away last spring. Perry starred as Fred Andrews in the series.

By now, many fans know new episodes of Riverdale are added to Netflix (Non-US) the day after they air on The CW. So, every Thursday, you can watch the new episodes of the series on Netflix if you live outside the US. Netflix is the global distributor of the series, and that’s why the show is released that way.
In the US, fans will have to wait a lot longer to watch Riverdale season 4 on Netflix. As you know, the seasons of the series usually premiere in October and then run for 22 episodes through May. In this case, Riverdale season 4 will end with the season finale, likely, in May 2020.
The CW and Netflix have a deal that brings new seasons of current CW shows that premiered before fall 2019 to Netflix eight days after the season finale.
Right now, we’re looking at a Thursday, May 21 or Thursday, May 28, as the possible release dates for Riverdale season 4 on Netflix. We likely won’t know which day it will be until after the new year or when we see when Riverdale will return from its midseason break.
There’s something awesome about binge-watching this series. While I do believe the writers set up these episodes to keep viewers interested for next week’s episode, it also seems like they make an extra effort to make this show fun to binge-watch. It works very well on Netflix.
If you’re not following along during the season, don’t worry too much. It will be on Netflix in the spring. Just be careful to avoid all those spoilers out there!
Netflix Life will be covering Riverdale season 4 throughout the full season! Stay tuned for more news about the hit series!
