CW is bringing back the town with Pep! According to the official Riverdale account back in February, Season 6 of Riverdale will take place regardless of rumors to the contrary.
After all, only half of season five has yet to premiere. Still, we’re already anticipating Season 6, with its upcoming time jump, and now that Veronica, Jughead, and Archie have graduated high school and are in their 20s. How can fans expect the next chapter? Find out where to watch Season 6 here and when it premieres.
Riverdale Season 6 Release Date and time
The CW will premiere Riverdale Season 6 on Tuesday, November 16, at 9 p.m. p.m. in the evening ET/8 in the evening CT, directly after The Flash: Season 8 premieres. The second half of Season 5 remains to be seen before the Season 5 premiere is on Wednesday and the shift to Tuesday. On Wednesday, August 11, The CW launches the new episodes at 8 p.m. p.m., ET, 7 p.m. EST.
What time will Riverdale be on?
As you’ve probably noticed, Riverdale isn’t just changing days, but also times! Until the end of Season 6. The show will be moving to Tuesdays in November, and it will also air one hour later at 9 p.m. p.m.:08 p.m. ET/8:08 p.m. Connecticut time.
Is the entire Riverdale cast returning?
You raise an excellent point! As of right now, there is no official cast list for Season 6, and fans are wondering if Cole Sprouse will return as Jughead?
Fans have been worried about Sprouse leaving before, but this is not the first time. I thought that Jughead had been fired or left voluntarily in Season 4 since he fake-died at the end. Both were not true in the future. It turns out that Sprouse’s TV character’s death was a sham; he continued working on Riverdale. How concerned should we now be about Jughead being involved in Season 6?
It’s a privilege to be a working actor for me as long as I continue to enjoy the show I’m on – Riverdale – and I get to work with my closest friends, which I do,” Sprouse told Variety Live earlier this year. To stare at something and declare, “I’m done” is incredibly pretentious and ignorant, in my opinion. One can laugh at themselves or criticize something they have worked for.
Riverdale Season 6 Plot
Since Season 5, the core four of Riverdale have been dealing with their high school experiences. Of course, that has changed since the Season 5-time jump, but creator Robert Aguirre-Sacasa recently teased that the show is coming to an end.
“The graduation episode is reminiscent of when we first pitched Riverdale; it feels like we are ending something we started in the pilot. When we pitched it to executives, they asked: “So is this just a high school show?” Aguirre-Sacasa revealed. “At the time, I thought: ‘Oh, I hope that doesn’t happen, I hope that it continues into young adulthood.’ It was funny; I used to say: ‘To me, Riverdale ends when Archie has a child.'”
