It looks like CW is truly cleaning the house. During the reveal of their 2022/2023 release schedule, they’ve also made the announcement that Riverdale will be ending with Season 7. It’s not too surprising, as some of the actors have pointed out that an end is quite likely plus the series has lost quite a bit of momentum even as it embraced more out there storytelling ideas and concepts, moving further away from its initial Twin Peaks inspiration.
The series was renewed alongside The Flash, All American, Kung Fu, and Walker. It was quite the hit with some strong ratings and eventually kicked off a new wave of momentum once it was released on Netflix, especially internationally where it was considered a “Netflix Original” for specific markets. Its “out-there” storytelling approach seemingly had many gripped, especially when some of its most viral moments spread online.
It had quite the cast with KJ Apa, Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes, Cole Sprouse, Madelaine Petsch, and many more. The cast has gone through some curious storylines, which included a murder case, escaping the clutches of a cult, time travel, and some characters even getting their hands on superpowers. It definitely was a wild ride fo those watching but one cannot deny that it was quite a memorable one.
