Riverdale is a Noire-inspired teen drama that is set to return to Netflix in 2019 which is Riverdale season 4. This show is based on the Archie Comics series which ended on a dour note after Luke Perry passed away while production was underway on season three earlier this year. Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to screen for the three episodes of the season, though those episodes were dedicated to his memory meaning his character will likely be written out at some point this time around.
Riverdale Season 4 update
But the question now remains that whether there be a season 4 for the TV Show? Well, yes, the show is going to be renewed for a fourth season. As for the update, the new season will air on The CW in the USA on Wednesday 9th October, with episodes arriving on Netflix the following day, Thursday 10th October. Episodes tend to drop at 8 am.
With the tragic death of Luke Perry means that we have seen the last of Fred Andrews. There isn’t a trailer for the show right now but it might be coming soon. The first seven episodes title of season 4 have been revealed which are as follows:-
1. Chapter Fifty-Eight: In Memoriam
2. Chapter Fifty-Nine: Fast Times at Riverdale High
3. Chapter Sixty: Dog Day Afternoon
4. Chapter Sixty-One: Halloween
5. Chapter Sixty-Two: Witness for the Prosecution
6. Chapter Sixty-Three: Hereditary
7. Chapter Sixty-Four: The Ice Storm
As for the plot, in season three we saw the resolution of the Black Hood and Gargoyle King storylines and there is still a lot left to be parsed. This time, the gang will be in senior year, which is sure to bring some real-world drama into the mix. Moreover, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa the creator of the show said that the first episode of the new season, titled In Memoriam, will be a tribute to the late Luke Perry and his character Fred Andrews. He said on an Instagram post “Probably the most important episode of Riverdale we’ll do this year, if not ever,”. “A tribute to our fallen friend. Thankful for this opportunity to honor Luke & Fred.”
Update May 2020
Riverdale Season 4 Netflix update
Riverdale Season 4 will be released on Netflix in May 2020. All previous seasons including Season 3 are currently available on Netflix globally. Presently it’s important that it would appear that only 1-19 episodes will be added to Netflix in May 2020. As you’re likely intensely mindful, TV show shooting has been seriously wrecked by the COVID-19 lockdown, and because of the idea of Riverdale and how its shot, it won’t have the option to finish off its season with the extra three scenes taking it up to its standard 22 episodes.
As of now Season 4 Episode 9 will air on The CW on 6th May 2020 at that point shows up on Netflix 8 days after (according to other CW appears). We think Netflix will get the later forthcoming episodes sometime later and as when they’re done. With all production shut for a long time to come, who knows when that is destined to be. While you’re hanging tight for Riverdale season 4 to hit Netflix, you can watch some other show from this Netflix Watch List.
