You Might Not Want To Wait For 'Riverdale' Season 6 To Hit Netflix

If you’ve heard some, well, unhinged rumors about what’s happening on Riverdale but don’t have cable and therefore don’t get to catch up until the show is streaminglet’s see if we can’t figure out when Riverdale season 6 will be on Netflix. Try and avoid spoilers in the meantime because the CW series is somehow getting wilder than ever.

As of right now, there are no plans for Riverdale season 6 to be added to Netflix in the immediate future. The schedule for December 2021 does not include it at this time. You’ll have to tide yourself over with season 2 of Emily in Paris and The Witcher. But it’s not like there are any plans to take Riverdale off of Netflix entirely or anything. It’ll be there eventually.

When is it, like, normal for new seasons to be added?

The fifth season, which just finished airing in October 2021, is already on Netflix. So one could presume that the five-episode event that is featured in season 6 could drop on the streaming service as early as January 2022 — and maybe even earlier than that. The second season dropped on Netflix about a week after it finished airing on the CW.

That said, the circumstances are a little abnormal. Seasons 4 and 5 of Riverdale were thrown out of whack due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Since they took so long to air in the first place it felt like it took forever for the season to get to Netflix. On the other hand, the stand-alone sixth season does feature Kiernan Shipka reviving her role as Sabrina Spellman from the Netflix original series The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina — which could work in the show’s favor. Surely Netflix wants their girl back ASAP.

What if I REALLY can’t wait?!

The CW app and website have new episodes. So does the live TV version of Hulu.

*whispers* is this the final season of Riverdale?

It doesn’t seem like it. At least, I would hope that Riverdale wouldn’t blow things off by killing off major characters and (finally) introducing magic only to pack it up and leave forever. Surely there will be at least one other season/reveal that this is some kind of alternate universe or something. But they haven’t said anything so… maybe!
