What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on The CW television network, Riverdale stars KJ Apa, Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes, Cole Sprouse, Madelaine Petsch, Marisol Nichols, Madchen Amick, Mark Consuelos, Skeet Ulrich, Casey Cott, Charles Melton, and Vanessa Morgan. Based on the characters from the Archie Comics, this show focuses on the wholesome town of Riverdale and some of its teen residents, including Archie (Apa), Betty (Reinhart), Veronica (Mendes), and Jughead (Sprouse). They discover the darkness and dangers that bubble underneath their town’s wholesome façade.
Season Four Ratings
The fourth season of Riverdale is averaging a 0.22 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 733,000 viewers. Compared to season three, that’s down by 38% and 30%, respectively. Find out how Riverdale stacks up against other The CW TV shows.
Will The CW will cancel or renew Riverdale for season five? The numbers have come down quite a bit when compared to season two but this network relies less on traditional ratings than the other networks do. With two sister shows — Chilling Adventures of Sabrina on Netflix and Katy Keene on The CW — I don’t see this one being cancelled anytime soon. I’ll still keep an eye on the ratings and update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free alerts on Riverdale cancellation or renewal news.
