Saying goodbye! Riverdale season 7 will be the show’s final ride, and the cast has shared some emotional details about the series’ end. Keep reading to see what the star’s have said.
Is ‘Riverdale’ Season 7 the Show’s Last?
Final season rumors started in 2020 after KJ Apa told the Los Angeles Times that he was contracted to be on Riverdale for three more years, meaning the beloved show would most likely end in 2023. In the same interview, he also confirmed his contract was the same as the rest of the show’s leads.
“I’m so grateful for the show and its success, but at the same time, there’s a lot of baggage that comes with that success,” KJ told Interview Magazine in February 2021. In May 2022, it was confirmed that season 7 would be the show’s last.
What Will ‘Riverdale’ Season 7 Be About?
The show will pick up where season 6 ended, with Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse) “trapped in the 1950s,” according to The CW’s official logline.
“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 description continued. “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?”
Vanessa Morgan (Toni Topaz) teased that the writers had plans to “end it with a bang,” during an exclusive interview with J-14 in August 2022.
“I know the last season we’re doing something really different,” the actress shared at the time. “I obviously can’t say what I’ve been told, but I think it’s gonna be just different than any other season.”
As for her character, specifically, Vanessa just wants Toni to be “happy” in the end.
“I would like it to end with the whole gang together. Not separated. It’d be really beautiful if we’re just like all together,” she added. “I don’t know what that looks like. I would love to meet more of my family. So far, we’ve only met a grandmother and a grandfather. Do I have siblings? We’ve never touched on that. Where’s my mom? Where’s my dad? I would love to touch more on that.”
