The third season of Riverdale will receive its UK premiere on Netflix UK on Thursday October 11th, it has been announced.
New episodes will then continue to be made available every Thursday, less than 24 hours after they initially air state-side on The CW.
Based on the Archie Comics’ characters, Riverdale is set in the present day and is described as a surprising and subversive take on Archie, Betty, Veronica, and their friends, exploring the surrealism of small town life — the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome façade. The drama series is produced by Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios and stars K.J. Apa, Cole Sprouse, Camila Mendes, Lili Reinhart, Madchen Amick, Mark Consuelos, Madelaine Petsch, Marisol Nichols, Luke Perry, Ashleigh Murray, Skeet Ulrich, Casey Cott, Charles Melton and Vanessa Morgan.
In the opening episode of season three, titled Labor Day, as the jury begins deliberations in his murder trial, Archie (KJ Apa) makes a surprising request about how he wants to spend his final days of summer. Betty (Lili Reinhart) is forced to deal with her problems head-on after a heated confrontation with Alice (Madchen Amick) and Polly (guest star Tiera Skovbye) brings up some dark secrets she’s kept hidden. Veronica (Camila Mendes) pleads with Hiram (Mark Consuelos) to step in and help Archie before a verdict is announced. Finally, Jughead (Cole Sprouse) leads the Serpents against the Ghoulies latest attack.
