Riverdale Season 7 release date and plot summary have already been made public. The iconic Archie Comics-based drama Riverdale, which has aired for seven seasons, will come to an end on The CW this year. The CW later announced in 2022 that Riverdale season 7 would be the final one after the show was renewed for a second season. Given that some of the cast members’ contracts were up this year, many of them had predicted this outcome in earlier interviews. Riverdale season six concluded on an unexpected note when the characters were thrown back to the 1950s and the timeline was rearranged.
The CW has finally unveiled fresh information regarding Riverdale season 7 following the conclusion of season 6. The television network declared that Riverdale season 7 would begin on March 29 at 9 PM ET. The season debut will air immediately following The Flash season 9’s new episode. The CW declared that the Riverdale series finale would premiere on Wednesday, August 23, but did not specify how many episodes would make up the final season. Additionally, a fresh Riverdale season 7 narrative summary was released, providing fresh information about the final season of the Archie Comics series.
The synopsis for Season7 is as follows, “The seventh season of RIVERDALE goes where no season of RIVERDALE has dared to go before—the 1950s! Picking up where last season ended, Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse) finds himself trapped in the 1950s. He has no idea how he got there, nor how to get back to the present. His friends are no help, as they are living seemingly authentic lives, similar to their classic Archie Comics counterparts, unaware that they’ve ever been anywhere but the 1950’s. Archie Andrews (KJ Apa) is the classic all-American teen, coming of age, getting into trouble, and learning life-lessons; Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) is the girl next door, starting to question everything about her perfect life—including her controlling mother Alice (Madchen Amick); Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes) is a Hollywood starlet who moved to Riverdale under mysterious circumstances; Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch) is the Queen Bee with a withering wit and a secret longing; Toni Topaz (Vanessa Morgan) is an activist fighting for the Black students of recently integrated Riverdale High; Kevin Keller (Casey Cott) is a “square” crooner wrestling with his sexual identity; Reggie Mantle (Charles Melton) is a basketball star from farm country; and Fangs Fogarty (Drew Ray Tanner) is a greaser who’s destined to be an Elvis-type star. It isn’t until Jughead is visited by Tabitha Tate (Erinn Westbrook)—Riverdale’s Guardian Angel—that he learns the cosmic truth about their predicament. Will Jughead and the gang be able to return to the present? Or will our characters be trapped in the 1950’s forever? And, if so…is that such a bad thing?”
There are other shows on The CW that are ending this year besides Riverdale season 7. More shows are coming to an end this year after being renewed for one more season in 2022 following a slew of cancellations. The ninth season of The Flash, which has been airing for almost ten years, will wrap off Barry Allen’s saga in the Arrowverse. The 13-episode Arrowverse drama got renewed for a second season and will make its formal debut on Wednesday, February 8, at 8 PM ET.
