New episodes of Riverdale are on the way! 

The CW have announced the premiere date of season 3 will be Thursday 11th October at 12pm our time. Ahhhh so far away but so exciting!

The series was renewed for a third season back in April, with season two finishing up in May. 

We were left on quite the cliffhanger, so we can't wait to see what happens. 

Showrunner Robert Aguirre-Sacasa revealed to The Hollywood Reporter following the finale, teasing that we will see a continuing focus on Archie's issues with Hiram in season three:

"Archie was sort of intoxicated by Hiram — his power and the way he moves through the world and his ruthless ideals. Archie kind of came back to the good guys' side by the end of the season, but there are consequences for what he's done this season. He and Hiram are squaring off, so I think that will be one of the main conflicts of season three, for sure."

"Yes, in season one, we did a murder mystery, and in season two, we did a serial killer in a small town and The Godfather in a small town. Season three will have a high genre element like that. That's what the show is. It's not just about the Archie characters. It's the Archie characters put into a specific genre, and we see how they relate and survive and adapt."

Ahhhh so much to look forward to!
