All the latest information about the cast, storyline, theories and trailers for Riverdale season 3.

Now we're entering the latter half of the second season of Riverdale, many fans minds are starting to think of the third season of the show. We know Riverdale has been a massive hit and it's likely to be around for many more seasons, but what concrete details do we have on the next season?

Well, the short answer is next to nothing. That said, there are details we can speculate on with some accuracy. We'll be updating this article throughout the year when we get more information but, in the meantime, here's what we can predict so far.

Has Riverdale season 3 been confirmed?

Officially? No. But we've got good reason to believe the show will return for another season. The shows ratings have been strong (up 58% from the first season) and show creator has just signed a deal with Netflix, who stream Riverdale outside the US, to develop a reboot of The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina, which exists in the same universe. You can bet Netflix figured Sabrina would be a safe bet by looking at Riverdale's success. The show seems unstoppable at the moment.

When is Riverdale season 3 released?

If the third season is confirmed, the show is likely to return at the same time of year as the second season did. Last year the cast returned for filming season two in June and the show returned back on screens in October. Prepare your Halloween Riverdale parties asap.

What’s going to happen in Riverdale season 3?

Riverdale is, at it's heart, a crime noir drama. Both the first and the second seasons have had murders at the heart of their storylines. It's likely that the third season would follow this theme but in what capacity, we obviously won't know until the end of the second season where we're sure they'll be some cliffhangers.

Which characters will be in Riverdale season 3?

Unless The CW want to completely ruin their new cash cow, you can definitely expect the main four of Archie, Betty, Jughead and Veronica to stay for season 3. Given the amount of untimely deaths in the show, the other characters aren't so safe.

Have they started filming Riverdale season 3 yet?

No. That's expected to happen in June.

How many episodes will there be in Riverdale season 3?

Season 2 had 22 so it's likely that season three will have roughly the same amount.

Will Riverdale cross over with Sabrina in season three?

Ah, the million dollar question. Rumours of the two worlds crossing over have been rife ever since the first season. Now that Sabrina production is in full swing, and with a new show to promote, we wouldn't be surprised if Netflix arranged for a crossover to happen.
