What’s This TV Show About?

Airing on The CW television network, Riverdale stars KJ Apa, Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes, Cole Sprouse, Madelaine Petsch, Madchen Amick, Casey Cott, Mark Consuelos, Charles Melton, Vanessa Morgan, Erinn Westbrook, and Drew Ray Tanner. Based on the characters from the Archie Comics, this show focuses on the seemingly quiet town of Riverdale and some of its teen residents, including Archie (Apa), Betty (Reinhart), Veronica (Mendes), and Jughead (Sprouse). They discover the darkness and dangers that bubble underneath their town’s wholesome façade. In season five, the gang bids farewell to high school and, in some cases, to each other as many of the characters go their separate ways. Then, the story moves forward in time. The former teen classmates are now young adults who return to Riverdale to escape their troubled pasts.

Telly’s Take

Will The CW cancel or renew Riverdale for season six? The network has been renewing almost all of its established TV series each year while ending just one or two to help make room on the schedule for new shows. I believe that Riverdale will be renewed but would not be surprised if season six ended up being the final year. I’ll update this page with breaking developments.
