Is Season 7 the Final Season of ‘Riverdale’?
In May 2022, it was confirmed that this would be the final season of Riverdale.
“It makes me sad. It’s truly the end of an era of my life, a big chapter of my life, and I’ll miss my cast so much,” Lili Reinhart (Betty Cooper) told Entertainment Tonight in August 2022 of the show’s end. “It’s the last time that we all will be collectively filming something together, so, I think we’re just going into this season knowing that we’re really going to try to cherish it.”
What’s Happening in Season 7 of ‘Riverdale’?
The season kicked off with Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse) “trapped in the 1950s,” the network’s official logline read.
“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,” the official announcement read. “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?”
Ahead of the season 7 premiere, show runner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa explained that he hoped that this season will be “most associated with Archie Comics,” during an interview with Deadline from March 2023. The show also plans to address the real-life hardships of the time.
“It would have been disingenuous to erase the real struggles and the real hardships that a lot of people in the 1950s faced, especially for our queer characters and our characters of color,” he added. As always, there will be a big bad, but this time around it’s referencing “the 1950s and society itself — how conformist it was, how repressive it was, how homophobic it was, how racist it was, how sexist it was.”
