What’s This TV Show About?
A live-action Archie Comics adaptation airing on The CW television network, Riverdale stars KJ Apa, Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes, Cole Sprouse, Marisol Nichols, Madelaine Petsch, Ashleigh Murray, Mädchen Amick, Mark Consuelos, Casey Cott, Skeet Ulrich, and Luke Perry. While Jason’s (Trevor Stines) killer was discovered by the end of the first season, in season two there’s more trouble afoot in Archie’s neighborhood, and it has struck at the heart of his family. Someone has shot his father, Fred (Perry), and Riverdale is in upheaval.
Season Two Ratings
The second season of Riverdale averaged a 0.49 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 1.37 million viewers. Compared to season one, that’s up by 25% and up by 32%, respectively. Learn how Riverdale stacks up against the other CW TV shows.
Unless the ratings totally tank (highly unlikely right now), I’m sure Riverdale will score a season three renewal. Warner Bros and Archie Comics made a big deal to develop other series.
