Riverdale Season 6 will be available for streaming on Netflix from August 7, 2022. Netflix will be streaming all the 22 episodes once the finale is aired on the parent network on July 31, following the deal between The CW and Netflix that allows the streamer to stream all the episodes of the season eight days after the finale episode is streamed on the network.
The new season has enthralled Riverdale fans with its riveting concoction of witches, superpowers, time travel, and whatnot. It makes us wonder what more is there to see in Season 7? Oh wait, is there a Season 7? Continue to read the article to know the truth.
For now, Season 6 will be available on Netflix in almost two weeks. So, hold your horses guys; it’ll be worth the wait.
What is Riverdale Season 6 all about?

Picking up from where Season 5 left off, Season 6 includes Hiram Lodge setting off a bomb in Archie’s house when Archie and Betty were inside. However, they survive, and we are taken back to the mysterious inhuman land of magic and monsters, where Archie and Betty unravel that they harbor superhuman powers.
Going all what’s-happening-here mode, Cheryl is possessed by her ancestor’s spirit Abigail. Meanwhile, a descendant of one of the town’s founders, Percival Pickens, has a bone to pick with the characters in the series.
If the magic, superstitions, and superpowers were not enough, Riverdale would also be including another musical episode, according to the TVLine. It is inspired by the musical American Psycho, based on the titular novel and film, which was released in 2000.
Will there be a Riverdale season 7?
The good news, yes. On March 22, 2022, Riverdale was renewed for a seventh season. The bad news, it will be the final season of the show. That’s all we know so far when it comes to Riverdale Season 7.
