As of the sixth season, there has been a huge jump into the supernatural and there has been an outrageous turn of events.
Riverdale has evolved beyond our wildest imaginations over the course of the six seasons it has aired so far. The adaptation of the comics was done with a darker concept of a murder mystery. The series is now known for its outrageous plot twists and developments. The ratings for the show have been consistently high despite the plot taking a huge detour from the central storyline and trying many out-of-the-world themes.
The show is currently in its sixth season which will most likely come to an end at the end of this month. Fans of the show are curious to know the future of the show.
The sixth season premiered in November 2021. And we have definitely not seen the last of it yet. While the show has still been in progress, it was renewed by The CW for another season.
Showrunner and creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa assured fans that the show was far from over and said, "One of the great gifts about this season is that we are exploring, yet again, a different genre, and I hope fans really respond to it. But there are still so many things to discover about these characters. We’re still in the midst of writing and producing Season 6. Things have only started! There’s so much more to come."
He added, "Things have only started! There’s so much more to come. There’s still juice in the tank, as far as I’m concerned, at least. As long as the show remains meaningful to people, and people are invested in it, there’s definitely, definitely, definitely gas in the tank."
As of the sixth season, there has been a huge jump into the supernatural as the crossover event with Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was the talk of the town as the fifth season came to close on a high note of witches and witch hunters. The sixth season started off with a fantastical twist as Archie got his heart ripped out, the town of Riverdale joined a cult, and the devil paid them a visit.
Since the season is still in progress, we can only imagine how it will end and leave us wondering what will be in store for the next season. "Every year, we start very disparate storylines, and we always try to weave them all together, and this year is no exception,” Aguirre-Sacasa has teased. But one thing is for sure, there will still be a supernatural element unless they somehow manage to dispel every trace of it from Riverdale by the end of the sixth season.
As of right now, there will likely be no major changes made. So the main cast comprising KJ Apa as Archie Andrews, Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper, Camila Mendes as Veronica Lodge, Cole Sprouse as Jughead Jones are set to return along with Madelaine Petsch as Cheryl Blossom, and Mädchen Amick as Alice Cooper, Casey Cott as Kevin Keller, Charles Melton as Reggie Mantle, Vanessa Morgan as Toni Topaz, Drew Ray Tanner as Fangs Fogarty, and Erinn Westbrook as Tabitha Tate.
The show has consistently been airing yearly. With the new season already renewed and the show set to conclude soon, we can expect the next season to air in early 2023.
