From Choni to Chic to Chuck, Riverdale Season 2 has upped the ante and the intensity from Season 1’s “Who killed Jason Blossom?” mystery. But let’s say you’re like the Black Hood, biding your time until you can kill every episode in one day. So when is Season 2 of Riverdale coming out on Netflix?
On that, we’ve got some good news, and some confusing news.
When Is Season 2 Of Riverdale Coming Out On Netflix In The US?
The good news is that you don’t have to wait that long! You’ll be able to explore the Black Hood’s reign of terror, find out all about Hiram Lodge’s (Mark Consuelos) epic plans, and watch Archie think hard with his shirt off when Riverdale hits Netflix in May.
The confusing part? We don’t know when in May.
The Season 2 finale, “Chapter Thirty-Five: Brave New World,” airs on May 16, 2018 on The CW. So it’s reasonable to think it’ll be after that – but how long after that will you have to wait?
Here’s When We Think Riverdale Season 2 Will Hit Netflix
The CW made a super smart move with Riverdale Season 1. The season finale, “Chapter Thirteen: The Sweet Hereafter,” aired on May 11, 2017. Exactly one week later, Season 1 dropped on Netflix.
Fans then had all summer to catch up on the show, and it paid off exponentially. The Season 1 finale aired to under a million people, while Season 2 debuted to 2.34 million. In an era when TV ratings are constantly falling off, that’s huge.
So if they go for the same pattern, chances are we’ll see Riverdale Season 2 hit Netflix on or around May 23, 2018. Will that double the audience for Season 3? We’ll just have to stay tuned.
Update: We were one day off! Riverdale season 2 will hit Netflix on May 24… Check out a cute video teasing the date, below.
