We have some great news to share with Riverdale fans! Riverdale season 6 is happening!

According to a report from Decider, The CW renewed Riverdale for season 6.

This is obviously terrific news for fans of the series as Riverdale enters a, well, turbulent time. In  the most recent episode, which was going to be the season 4 finale before the pandemic shut down production, we’ll see our favorite characters walk across the stage at Riverdale High graduation.

Then, the show is jumping seven years into the future for the rest of Riverdale season 5!

When does Riverdale season 6 come out?

Now, that we know that Riverdale season 6 is happening. The next question fans are asking is about the Riverdale season 6 release date.

Well, we know that Riverdale season 5 will air throughout the spring and summer of 2021. But, things will likely get a little complicated for Riverdale season 6, and it’ll largely depend on how production on Riverdale season 5 goes throughout the rest of the year.

In a normal year, production on the previous season would end in the spring and then the cast would have a break for a while before starting to film the new season in July-ish.

Well, as we know, this is not a normal time for film and TV production. Production was delayed in 2020, so that delayed the Riverdale season 5 premiere date until, well, now.

According to the Decider report, many of the shows will have shorter seasons and could start filming immediately after the season ends sometime this summer. We don’t know if Riverdale is in that group, or if it will have a 22-episode fifth season. So, it’s just a matter of all the details being ironed out.

For now, expect to see the Riverdale season 6 premiere on The CW (and on Netflix abroad) in October or November 2021. It’ll likely be on Netflix US in the spring of 2022.

Stay tuned for more news about Riverdale season 6.
