The CW announced that they’ve given an early renewal to Riverdale for the 2017-2018 season! The first season of the show debuted on January 26, 2017.
On a competitive Thursday night, RIVERDALE posts tremendous ratings gains on a delayed viewing basis, particularly with its young skewing audience, growing 78% in adults 18-34 and 85% in women 18-34 in Live+7 day ratings over Live+Same Day. In the few weeks since its premiere, the buzzy drama has quickly become one of The CW’s most streamed shows on the network’s digital platforms, including The CW app and CWTV.com.
The show is based on the characters from Archie Comics and stars K.J. Apa, Lili Reinhart, Cole Sprouse and Luke Perry.
