The Archie characters have been around for more than 75 years in the comics and now we know their Riverdale TV show isn’t going anyplace either. The network has announced that the TV show has been renewed for a fourth season which will be part of the 2019-20 broadcast season.
A CW live-action Archie Comics adaptation, 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. The third season kicked off with a dark mystery the parents have been keeping a secret, since they were in high school. Meanwhile, Archie (Apa) has been framed for a crime he did not commit, and the new prosecutor, Ms. Wright (Penelope Ann Miller), is gunning for him with gusto.
The third season of Riverdale is averaging a 0.44 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 1.28 million viewers. Compared to season two, that’s down by 11% in the demo and down by 7% in viewership. The show is one of The CW’s higher-rated series and the network has announced another related series may be on the way. There was no question that it would be renewed.
Today, The CW also announced that nine other TV shows had been renewed for the 2019-20 season: Arrow, Black Lightning, Charmed, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Dynasty, The Flash, Legacies, Supergirl and Supernatural. The fates of All American and Roswell, New Mexico have yet to be announced.
