Yay: 'Riverdale' Season 3 Is Happening, So We Can All Breathe a Sigh of Relief


Everyone's been dying to know – is Riverdale Season 3 for sure happening? Well, now it's confirmed. It sure is. The CW renewed the series Monday – along with Supernatural, Arrow and Supergirl. It was back in March of 2017 during Season 1 when The CW formally announced the show would be coming back for a second season.

Seriously, if you aren't already obsessed with The CW series based on the beloved Archie Comics characters, then it's about time to grab a burger and a milkshake and start binging because we guarantee as soon as you start watching, you'll be hooked. And then you'll understand why we're already desperate to find out the fate of the show. While we're currently in the midst of watching Season 2 every week, naturally, we're already thinking about what's next since we're self-proclaimed Riverdale addicts over here.

While we're sure you've already binge-watched the first season on Netflix – and got all of our friends to watch the show too – the current season isn't streaming on Netflix in the U.S. yet. Although, current episodes are there for those in the U.K. so they can easily keep up each week too. And we'll find out the fate of the Archie, Betty, Jughead, Veronica in Season 3 v soon.

So will everyone be back? No one on the cast so far has made an indication they would leave despite the fact there was a weird rumor Lili Reinhart might be recast. (Totally not true, btw.) But in a town where murder seems to be a serious problem, you never know what might happen to a beloved character if we're being honest there. It also wouldn't be the first time there was a casting shake-up if someone suddenly got recast too since the role of Reggie was recast after Charles Melton took over for Ross Butler, who had already committed to the second season of 13 Reasons Why.

Speaking of Charles, he and his castmate Vanessa Morgan are confirmed to be bumped up to season regulars this time around. Thank God – because we've truly been dying for these two to get more screen time on the show.

"Toni Topaz has been a break-out character for us since Jughead met her at Southside High — and that's thanks to Vanessa Morgan's fearless, winning performance," executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa told TV Insider. "[Reggie] is sexy and funny as hell. He's a terrific addition to the gang and in Season 3, we'll be seeing A LOT more of him. All hail Mantle the Magnificent!"
