When Will Riverdale Season 3 Be on Netflix

Season 2 of Riverdale, the dark take on the Archie comics, recently ended and we are all eagerly awaiting season 3 to premiere on the CW and wondering when Riverdale season 3 will be on Netflix.

Maybe we're jumping the gun a little bit, but speculating on our favorite TV shows gives us something to help take our minds off all the turmoil in the world. That's why it's so much fun to watch all the turmoil going on in the dark town of Riverdale! Between mobsters, drug wars, gangs, serial killers, and a healthy dose of teen drama, Riverdale is the perfect recipe for entertainment and a momentary reprieve from the real world.

We're looking forward to being able to rewatch all our future favorite episodes on Netflix again and again. How long will we have to wait to do just that?


When Will Riverdale Season 3 Be on Netflix?

Season 1 of Riverdale was added to Netflix in Spring 2017 and season 2 just made its Netflix debut, but what does that mean for Riverdale season 3? Well, if the third season is anything like the first and second, it will have around 22 episodes and will have the season finale around mid May.

The CW and Netflix signed a deal in which all scripted CW shows will be available on Netflix within just a few weeks of the season finale. Season 2 concluded on May 16 and is already available on to stream on Netflix. Unless something big happens, season 3 will be the same way and we should be able to expect Riverdale season 3 on Netflix between mid and late May.

While May might seem like a long time from now, but it should pass quickly! And don't worry, there will be plenty going on in the meantime to preoccupy us all. Riverdale season 3 will premiere in the fall and will have a new episode most every week but for the dreaded Hellatus that CW is known for. (That term was coined for one of the CW's other hit shows, Supernatural, and is used to describe the awful hiatus the show sometimes goes on).

We will get juicy tidbits about the upcoming season during San Diego Comic Con in July, and there is always Choni and Bughead fanfiction to help get us by until Riverdale season 3 is on Netflix.

When Will Riverdale Premiere On The CW

Unfortunately, we don't have Riverdale season 3 start date just yet. However, we know which day the show will premiere. The CW recently announced their series lineup for the fall, and Riverdale will air in the same time slot it always has: 8/7c on Wednesday nights.

So, get ready, Riverdale fans! it's going to be a hell of a ride.
