Is Riverdale season 7 returning this September? Check other details including Release Date, Cast and other updates


Cole Sprouse revealed to GQ that he and the rest of the cast were ready to “wrap it up with a bow” before Riverdale was recently cancelled. Expecting a traditional farewell in the seventh and final season is unrealistic given that this is Riverdale.

The show’s unexpected supernatural turn at the end of season six foreshadowed another, even more dramatic event by returning everyone to a simpler, cornier era. Yes, Riverdale’s dark interpretation of the original story has finally gone full circle with a vintage conclusion that perfectly captures the ’50s backdrop for which this franchise is most known.

Riverdale season 7 Plot

Even if most of the characters have very well forgotten all that occurred with Percival, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa revealed that the supernatural events of season six would still have an influence on the finale

“It is not a hard, complete break from what has come before. Jughead remembers everything that happened. And I think our characters, whether they’re conscious or not, have an emotional memory of what they’ve been through.”

“So it is again, and I tried to say this after the Rivervale event, Rivervale is in continuity. It is not five episodes that exist outside of continuity. And I think everyone saw that it really was so wedded to Riverdale, and it was so wedded to season six. So season seven, in my mind, is not the start of a new continuity. It is still in continuity.”
