When Does Riverdale Come Back? | Season 3 Returns

Can you believe we made it to the Riverdale season 2 finale? We definitely can't. Although this season was twice as long as season 1, we are itching for more. So, when does Riverdale come back? Season 3 returns sooner than you think, and hopefully, in 2018. But, you can't be too sure. Since the first two seasons were released at different times. Though, they were released in the same year, so we have hope that a speedy Riverdale return is coming up, too.

Whether you're worried about your favorite characters like Jughead (Cole Sprouse), Archie (KJ Apa), Betty (Lili Reinhart), and Veronica (Camila Mendes), or you simply want to consume as much Riverdale content as you can, stay tuned. We've got all the details on when Riverdale season 3 will return to the CW.

Potential Season 3 Release Date

Last year, Riverdale had two premieres. One in January and another one in October. However, we bet that Riverdale will follow the season 2 path and come back in October as part of the CW's fall lineup.

Season 1 started on October 11, 2018. So, we will probably get to see new episodes of the series up and running again in early October. Fingers crossed. But, stay tuned and keep checking back with us. We will update this post as soon as the release date is revealed by the CW.
