Bring on More Varchie — Riverdale‘s Renewed for a Third Season!
Riverdale fans, it’s time to bring out the milkshakes and celebrate because your favorite show just got renewed for a third season! It’s pretty hard to believe that it has been only a little over a year since the CW series first graced our televisions, but with all of the hype surrounding it, it’s not entirely surprising that Riverdale is getting a third season. The show has completely enraptured its viewers and we seriously cannot get enough of it.
As the show has been nearing its Season 2 finale, many have wondered about its fate since no renewal announcement had been made. THANKFULLY, all of the wonderment was met with words of confirmation when the cast and crew took to social media to announce that we’ll get to explore the town of Riverdale for at least one more season.
Following the renewal announcement, CW president Mark Pedowitz shared a statement (via EW) revealing how excited he is to continue the Riverdale series, as well as the many others that were picked up.
“As The CW expands to a six-night, Sunday through Friday schedule next season, we are proud to have such a deep bench of great returning series for 2018-19,” Mark said. “By picking these ten series up for next season, we have a terrific selection of programming to choose from when we set our fall schedule in May, with more still to come.”
He also added, “I’m especially happy that we’ll continue to work with the incredibly talented casts, producers and writers who create the series our fans are so passionate about.” Well, Mark, you aren’t the only one excited about the continuation of these shows. Riverdale‘s crew and cast members expressed their excitement on the renewal announcement with a series of tweets:

Hopefully the third season is filmed as soon as possible because we all need to know what’s going to happen next ASAP. The whole second season has had a much darker vibe than the first with more conspiracy, murder and mystery than we ever thought possible. So, with that being said, fans can only wonder just how crazier the show can get.
