If you're wondering whether Riverdale is back on, you're in for some good news. After a short winter break (that felt like longer tbh), the show is back! We spent months waiting for Riverdale Season 2. Things are seriously ramping up and we only end up with more questions every time we tune in. With so much going on, you won't want to miss a single episode.
Is Riverdale on tonight?
Yes! The CW's hit TV show will be gracing our television sets at its normal time, on Wednesday nights at 8 p.m. The mid-season finale took place a couple of weeks ago on December 13, 2017, and there haven't been any new episodes since then. Well, the wait is finally over. January 17, 2018 means that new episodes are back. Hallelujah!
When we last left off, the mystery of the Black Hood was finally revealed in a tense episode that saw Archie and Betty face-to-face with the green-eyed, masked man. So what's happening in the midseason premiere? "The Blackboard Jungle" focuses on the aftermath when Southside High is abruptly shut down and all its students — including Jughead, Toni, Sweet Pea, and the rest of the Serpents — must transfer to Riverdale High. The storyline of Betty's brother Chic will also start coming in. And to this we say, finally!
For the weeks when we were sadly Riverdale-free, The CW aired different programs instead of the regularly scheduled content, including iHeartRadio Music Festival Night 1. While it's tragic any time we don't get any new episodes, this isn't the first time Archie, Betty, Veronica, and Jughead have taken a break in Season 2. For Thanksgiving 2017, the show was bumped by a week to accommodate the iHeartRadio Music Festival special.
When does Riverdale come on?
Riverdale appears on The CW every Wednesday at 8:00 p.m. Miss a week or just can't get enough of the Black Hood drama? Catch up using these handy season 2 recaps or stream older episodes of the show on Hulu and on Netflix. Trust us, you won’t want to miss a thing. Now all we can do is wait and see if Riverdale Season 3 is actually happening...
