Riverdale season five had an explosive cliffhanger, leaving fans desperate to know what is going to happen next. The CW and Netflix teen drama switched it up with the latest series, moving the Core Four from mystery-solving youngsters to troubled adults as the show skipped forward seven years. With the gang firmly back in Riverdale after their time apart, series six is expected to delve deeper into their lives since leaving the once quiet suburban town behind.

WARNING: This article contains spoilers from Riverdale.

When does Riverdale season 6 start?

Riverdale series five ended last month with the lives of Betty Cooper (played by Lili Reinhart) and Archie Andrews (KJ Apa) in jeopardy.

Before Hiram Lodge (Mark Conseulos) left the town for good, he had one last trick up his sleeve: a bomb.

He had planted the device underneath Archie’s bed and it exploded presumably before either himself or Betty were able to escape.

Series six will hopefully pick up from where Riverdale season five ended upon its return. 

Since premiering in 2017, Riverdale fans in the States have been used to watching the drama unfold weekly on a Wednesday evening.

In a first though, the drama will be shaking up its schedule, moving to a different day for its sixth series.

Riverdale season six is going to premiere on Tuesday, November 16, at 9pm ET/8p CT on The CW.

This will presumably be the case for the remainder of the show’s sixth outing as well.

When is it on Netflix?

For those who live outside of America, it will also be a slightly different story.

Up until now, new episodes of Netflix have been released the day after The CW on Thursdays.

With the switch to Tuesdays for the American network, this means Netflix subscribers will also be getting the drama a day earlier.

Series six episodes will instead be coming out every Wednesday once the show returns.

When Riverdale does return, there will first be a special five-episode event entitled Rivervale.

This was teased in the season six promo where the town’s sign had been changed to “Rivervale” and Toni Topaz (Vanessa Morgan) was seen referring to the town by this new name.

The trailer shows there will be a spookier tone when the new series does start as well.

Rivervale will delve further into the supernatural genre, welcoming a familiar face from The CW family.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina may have been cancelled but Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) is still very much alive.

She will be paying a visit to Riverdale in the fourth episode of series six.

This is expected only to be for the Rivervale even though and will not be introduced as a series regular.

Riverdale season 6 will premiere on Tuesday, November 16, on The CW and on Wednesday, November 17, on Netflix.
