Following Riverdale‘s return in August to finish off season 5, fans won’t have to wait long after that for season 6. The series is set to premiere its sixth season sometime in the fall, and that’s not all.

According to TVLineRiverdale is on the move. After spending the last four seasons on Wednesdays, the steamy drama will be shifting to Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET, being paired with The Flash. Both series will reportedly kick off their seasons with what The CW is calling “five-episode events.” The change in day is because starting Sundays in the fall on The CW will be held for new game shows Legends of the Hidden Temple and Killer Camp. Current Sunday shows DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Batwoman are then taking over the Wednesday slot, moving Riverdale to Tuesdays and Nancy Drew to Fridays.

Season 5 of Riverdale returns Wednesday, August 11 at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT on The CW, before moving to Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT for season 6 in the fall.
