Season 6 of Riverdale is almost here and The CW has released the description for the premiere episode, which will kick off the five-episode “Rivervale” event! The season premiere, appropriately titled “Chapter Ninety-Six: Welcome to Rivervale,” will immediately follow the events of the season 5 finale after the explosion. While almost everything is as it should be, some characters have taken new fates and Betty and Archie’s lives are up in the air as they were directly in the bomb’s vicinity.
The full description for “Chapter Ninety-Six: Welcome to Rivervale” reads:
“WELCOME TO RIVERVALE – Following the explosion that ended Season Five, a new day dawns in the town of RiverVALE, where everything is as it should be. Veronica (Camila Mendes) and Reggie (Charles Melton) are now the town’s power couple, while Jughead (Cole Sprouse) and Tabitha (Erinn Westbrook) move in together. But with Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) demanding a return to the ‘old ways,’ this serenity will surely not last. And how could Archie (KJ Apa) and Betty (Lili Reinhart) possibly have survived?“
Don’t miss the season 6 premiere of Riverdale, and the start of the five-episode “Rivervale” event, on Tuesday, November 16 at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT on The CW, streaming free the next day on The CW app!
