Riverdale fans, we’re almost there! We’ve almost made it through the hellatus! Riverdale season 5‘s return to The CW is imminent. The months certainly didn’t fly by, but we’re happy to be returning to the town with pep on Wednesday, August 11.
Set your phones for 8 p.m. ET because that’s when we’ll be dropped back into the madness that unfolded in “Chapter Eighty-Six: The Pincushion Man.”
Short recap, there was a jail break, Jughead’s gone missing, Betty’s gone undercover as a trucker, the Blossoms may be witches, and Varchie are having problems. Once again the show has a lot to juggle, but that’s basically its brand at this point.
Prepare yourselves for the return of Mama Toni and a revival of the OG Josie and the Pussycats line-up as we swing into the back half of the season. Also three cheers for Riverdale season 5’s resurgence on Netflix come Thursday, August 12.
Riverdale season 5 release date on Netflix
That’s right! What’s on Netflix is reporting Netflix has confirmed next-day viewing of the fifth season will return to the platform when Riverdale begins airing on The CW again in August. However, this doesn’t apply to Netflix US subscribers.
Sorry, y’all, like the rest of The CW line-up that drops on the streamer for US residents, we’ll be waiting until season 5 concludes to see it come to Netflix. As long as there are no other breaks, the Riverdale season 5 finale will air Wednesday, September 29 which means it’ll make its land on the streamer Thursday, October 7.
What’s even more exciting is the news that we won’t be waiting long between seasons this year. Riverdale season 6 will premiere just in time for the holiday season. Click through to the next page to learn more about the upcoming season’s release!
Riverdale season 5 returns to The CW on Wednesday, August 11 at 8 p.m. ET.
