Riverdale Season 7 Release Date
According to Netflix Life, neither The CW nor Netflix will air Season 7 of Riverdale in October 2022. The seventh season is set to start in the middle of the season, which means the last season will come out sometime in 2023.
Once the last season starts streaming on The CW, it will definitely be available on Netflix eight days after the show ends. But as of this writing, there is no official information about when the show will start or how many episodes it will have.
So, Riverdale fans would have to wait until at least the middle of 2023. Even so, this also depends on how many episodes there are in the season and when the show comes out on The CW.

Riverdale Season 7 Cast
With this being the final season, fans are hoping to see some familiar celebrities return to say farewell.
Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa stated in an interview: “My hope is that in season seven, which will be our final season, we will see folks we haven’t seen in a long time return to Riverdale in terrific, juicy narrative arcs… a celebration and reunion for everyone who has been a part of Riverdale and worked so hard to make it what it was.
“Again, a million things to work out, but my desire, more than anything, is that folks we haven’t seen a return.” Kiernan Shipka made multiple cameos as Sabrina the Teenage Witch in season six, and fans hope she’ll return for more in season 7, along with a much-loved father figure.
Jughead’s father, FP, played by Skeet Ulrich, is a fan favorite, and the showrunners have stated that they would like to see him return. Lili Reinhart, one of the series’ stars, recently made her cinematic debut for Netflix.
The long-term cast will return, which includes:
- Archie Andrews is played by KJ Apa
- Betty Cooper is played by Lili Reinhart
- Veronica Lodge is played by Camila Mendes
- Jughead Jones is played by Cole Sprouse
- Cheryl Blossom is played by Madelaine Petsch
- Mädchen Amick in the role of Alice Smith
- Kevin Keller is played by Casey Cott
- Reggie Mantle is played by Charles Melton
- Toni Topaz is played by Vanessa Morgan
- Fangs Fogarty is played by Drew Ray Tanner
- Tabitha Tate is played by Erinn Westbrook
Riverdale Season 7 Plot
Riverdale’s sixth season shifted its focus to the supernatural, coinciding with the crossover event with Chilling Adventures of Sabrina which was all the talk of the town. Season 5 had ended on a particularly strong note involving witches and those who hunted them, so this was a fitting way to cap off the show.
A fantastical turn was taken at the beginning of Season 6, as Archie had his heart ripped out, the town of Riverdale joined the cult, and the devil paid them a visit. The most recent season came to a close on July 31, 2022, and the upcoming season will also see the repercussions of everything that took place in the previous season, which was the sixth.
Where To Watch Riverdale Season 7?
The television show Riverdale may now be seen on The CW. We anticipate that The CW will soon premiere the seventh season of the show Riverdale, which will air there. Let’s watch and see what comes next.
