Riverdale season 6 is coming to Netflix worldwide, but when it arrives depends on where you live. Most regions of Netflix outside the US now has the full sixth season while the US is getting it in August 2022. Here’s the Netflix release schedule for Riverdale season 6.
The long-running show from The CW is the show everyone loves to hate. Adapting the Archie comics, the series continues to be one of the network’s best performers and performs well on Netflix.
Season 5 of Riverdale only wrapped up on The CW in early October 2021 due to filming delays caused by the global pandemic. That means those in the United States still currently don’t have access to season 5.
As you may have heard, season 6 is set to be the penultimate season with season 7 set to be the show’s final season. No details on episode count for the final season have been announced yet, and the release is expected to be in 2023. Like all previous seasons, it will come to Netflix as part of a legacy deal with The CW.
Kiernan Shipka confirmed on October 8th that she’d be reprising her role as Sabrina Spellman in Riverdale season 6. This is a tie-in with her Netflix show, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
Her character appeared in a crossover that took place in the fourth episode.
The official Netflix synopsis for the sixth season is:
“Darkness knows no limits as Archie, Betty, Cheryl, Veronica and Jughead face a new season of uncertainty in their humble-yet-haunting hometown.”
