Archie, Betty, Veronica, and the gang are sticking around "Riverdale" for another season.
The CW gave an early renewal to the new Archie comics-inspired mystery drama, which debuted in January to 1.4 million viewers. The network also said "Riverdale" is one of their most streamed shows, alongside veterans "The Flash," "The Vampire Diaries," and "Jane the Virgin." It certainly has fared better than fellow freshman series "No Tomorrow" and "Frequency," neither of which is expected to return.
"Riverdale," which airs Thursday nights, is a noir, edgy take on the wholesome Archie comic series, with the first season revolving around the mysterious death of a teen.
The show joins other early renewals "Arrow," "The Flash," "Supergirl," "DC's Legends of Tomorrow," "Supernatural," "Jane the Virgin" and "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend." "Riverdale's" return means one less hole to fill for The CW, which is saying goodbye this year to "The Vampire Diaries" and "Reign."Want more stuff like this? Like us on Facebook.
