The characters in Riverdale, a popular Netflix series, have had enough, but the chaotic force that has powered the show till now is not through with the plot. There is no question that the show’s fandom was eagerly anticipating the arrival of Riverdale Season 7. However, the producing body CW has responded more quicker than anybody anticipated. After just a few episodes of the sixth season, the CW renewed the programme for a seventh season. So, one thing is certain: the adolescent drama will return for a seventh season. You’ve come to the correct spot if you’re a Riverdale fan seeking for information about the forthcoming Riverdale Season 7. Here’s everything we know thus far about Riverdale Season 7.
Anticipated Release Date for Riverdale Season 7
The CW issued an official statement on the show’s renewal a few days ago, on March 22nd. Riverdale Season 7 has been added to their list of 2022-2023 series. The CW made no mention of this episode being the last one of the series. On the other hand, based on earlier pronouncements from the casting team, we may presume that Riverdale is coming to an end.
There is currently no information about a projected release date for Riverdale Season 7. However, given that Season 6 is still airing, we can safely predict that Riverdale Season 7 will be a long time in coming. Nonetheless, since production work has resumed after multiple interruptions due to the epidemic, season 7 might air before the end of this year.
Is This Going to be the End For the Show?
When it comes to whether or not this episode will be the last one of Riverdale, there are some strong suspicions. Back in 2020, the speculations began when one of the major cast members, KJ Apa, said in an interview that the main cast’s contracts will expire after season 7. The rumours intensified when another significant cast member, Lili Reinhart, stated in an Instagram live at the end of 2021 that season 7 would be the last season. Just a few days after her remark, Cole Sprouse hinted in an interview with Entertainment Tonight that the following season will be the end of his contract. “I believe the quality of a great programme is understanding how to tie it up and say, ‘Hey, we love you guys,” he added. ‘This is the conclusion, and I hope you all had a good time.'”
On the other side, in an interview with Decider on March 17, 2022, the show’s producer, Roberto Aguirre Sacasa, debunked all claims regarding Riverdale Season 7 being the last one. He confidently claimed that things had only just begun and that there was much more to come. “At least as far as I’m concerned, there’s still juice in the tank.” There’s absolutely, definitely, definitely gas in the tank as long as the programme stays significant to people and people are involved in it.”
Whether Riverdale Season 7 is the last one or not, one thing is certain: we will see more of the programme in the near future.
