Good news for Riverdale fans around the world. Just released its fifth installment, and probably the most anticipated, CW has announced the order for a sixth season that will be released in the 2022-2022 television season. So we’ll have Archie, Betty, and Veronica for a while.
The renewal of the successful Archie Comics-inspired series that has enjoyed a very solid fan base since it first premiered in 2017 is not the only fiction from the US network that has seen its future horizons broadened, but is part of a barrage of renewals by the CW that includes 10 more series. Take note of all of them and their respective seasons:
The Flash – Season 8
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 7
All American – Season 4
Charmed – Season 4
Legacies – Season 4
In the Dark – Season 4
Roswell, New Mexico – Season 4
Batwoman – Season 3
Nancy Drew – Season 3
Dynasty – Season 5
On the other hand, the new Arrowverse series Superman & Lois, which will show us the famous couple already with teenage children and as we have never seen them before, has received the green light for the production of two extra episodes that are incorporated into the first season, which will finally have 15 chapters. Similarly, the ‘reboot’ of Walker Texas Ranger, Walker, will have five more episodes than planned, for a total of 18.
From the CW they are very proud of their fiction products and, as its president, Mark Pedowitz has announced in a statement, they cannot wait any longer to start building a strong and stable next television season.
Riverdale’s renewal comes just a couple of weeks after the premiere of the long-awaited fifth season, which is about to experience a multi-year time skip. Thus, knowing that it will have the sixth installment resolves the doubts of some fans regarding the intentions of Roberto Aguirre Secasa and his team regarding the future of the series.
