A 21st-century twist on the beloved Archie comic books, Riverdale has more romance and mystery than your average high school. The show follows four teenages, Archie, Betty, Veronica, and Jughead as they navigate the perils of adolescence and solve crimes.
Riverdale is a hit CW show that started in 2017. Currently, the streaming site has the first three seasons. The CW network is currently airing the fourth season of Riverdale.
One reason I love this show is because it has a mix of teen drama and mystery, which are two of my favorite genres. There is romance, murders, and much more throughout the course of this ongoing show.
The mystery in the first season was a murder that the four main characters, Archie, Betty, Veronica and Jughead solved in the episode before the season finale. This kept me wondering who the murderer was and it made me keep on watching.
The mystery in the second season was a serial killer, who was called the Black Hood. When the killer was revealed in the episode before the finale, it was a shocker. I never thought that this person would be capable of killing innocent people.
The mystery in the third and current season is a monster-like thing called the Gargoyle King. Like the past two seasons, the reveal of the monster was very shocking and has me wondering what the mystery will be in the fourth season.
I like Riverdale because it is a very different show. Most mystery shows go on for many, many seasons before the mystery is resolved, but Riverdale has a new mystery every season which keeps it very exciting.
I like every episode of the show, but my favorite one so far would probably be in season two, an episode called “A Night to Remember.” I like this one in particular because it is a musical episode, one of two that the show has filmed so far. The musical episodes are just so different and not like any episodes of any other show.
Toward the end of filming season three, actor Luke Perry, who played Archie Andrews’s father, died. Luke Perry died at age 52 due to a stroke and the first episode of season four was dedicated to him.
Riverdale has already been renewed for a fifth season, but they are going to have to film that season without two of their major characters. Skeet Ulrich, who plays F. P. Jones, one of the main characters’ dad, Jughead, and Marisol Nichols, who plays one of the main characters’ mom, Veronica Lodge, have announced that they are leaving the show after season four.
As the characters in Riverdale get ready to graduate high school in the fourth season, I am excited for what is to come with their future in season five, and hopefully there will be many more jaw-dropping moments and mysteries to solve!
Please Note: Riverdale season 4 filming has been disrupted by the coronavirus. The next episode is set to air on Wednesday, April 8. The season may be postponed or delayed due to ongoing circumstances. Seasons 1-3 are available to watch on Netflix right now.
