Even five seasons in, we’re still as hooked on Riverdale as the day it premiered. Well, most of us are still hooked. Others jumped shipped somewhere between the Black Hood and the Gargoyle King. But those of us sticking around know The CW’s gritty teen drama can still churn out a mystery like no one’s business. From murder to alien abductions (we’ll see!), they’ve done it all.

Riverdale began its run in 2017 as a modernized and dramatized reboot of the Archie Comics characters with a dark spin. Archie (KJ Apa), Betty (Lili Reinhart), Veronica (Camila Mendes) and Jughead (Cole Sprouse) come together with their friends and enemies to crack the case on their small town’s latest mysteries, no matter if it’s a serial killer or an illegal Fizzle Rocks ring.

Currently, four seasons of Riverdale are available to stream on Netflix, and it’s not a bad time to start catching up on one of the most popular shows on television. The fifth season debuted on The CW in 2021 and finished the gang’s high school run before leaping ahead in time seven years. Although the season won’t resume new episodes until August, effectively pushing its Netflix bow a month or two, there’s no time like the present to relive the glory days of Riverdale’s mysteries.
