Riverdale season 7 release schedule: When is episode 2 on Netflix?
Fans can't wait to see how the unpredictable teen drama ends.
Riverdale certainly has its fair share of detractors, but to give credit where its due, the show is certainly adept at keeping people guessing.
From the grounded (ish?) first season, the show has expanded into a wide variety of dark fantasy storylines, including a recent crossover with the abruptly cancelled Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
In season 7, Riverdale is throwing another curve ball by whisking its characters away to 1955, where they'll be living out a seemingly wholesome existence that pays homage to the original Archie comic books. At least, initially.
The dramatic trailer seems to reveal that deadly drama will find the gang once more but for now, it's milkshake time.
Here's everything you need to know about Riverdale season 7's UK release schedule on Netflix.
Riverdale season 7 episode 2 release date on Netflix
Riverdale season 7 episode 2 is coming to Netflix on Thursday 6th April 2023.
The latest chapter is titled 'Skip, Hop, and Thump!'.
How many episodes are in Riverdale season 7?
Riverdale season 7 will consist of 20 episodes in total.
That's a slight decrease from the 22 episodes that was once standard for a US network television show, but an increase on the 19 episodes of the pandemic era and the mere 13 that comprised season 1.
Riverdale season 7 release schedule
In previous years, Riverdale episodes have arrived in the UK via Netflix on the day after their network broadcast on The CW in the United States. This gives us a rough idea of how the series will play out.
However, fans should be prepared for a possible mid-season break, as TVLine reports that the final episode of Riverdale will premiere on Wednesday 23rd August 2023 on The CW.
There are not currently enough episodes to fill every week between the premiere and the finale, so it's likely that a short hiatus could come partway through the run.
This helps build anticipation, as well as giving the production staff extra time to get things polished off. For now, here's what the Riverdale season 7 release schedule looks like:
