Riverdale season 6 might be the craziest season of the series yet, and that’s saying something for a show like Riverdale. The penultimate season has included superpowers, time travel, and so many other wild plot twists that are par for this particular course.
The sixth season premiered on The CW in November 2021 with the five-episode Rivervale event, which turned the series upside down in ways that previous seasons never had before. Following the conclusion of Rivervale, season 6 continues to feel the aftershocks.
Unfortunately, not every Riverdale fan has had the opportunity to watch season 6 quite yet. While the latest episodes are streaming weekly on Netflix in some parts of the world, Riverdale season 6 still hasn’t touched Netflix in other parts of the world, including the United States.
Because season 6 will still be airing on The CW throughout July 2022, the new episodes won’t be released on Netflix in July. The series wasn’t included on the complete list of movies and shows coming in the month. But with the finale date set, we know when to expect its arrival.
When is Riverdale season 6 on Netflix?
With 22 episodes in Riverdale season 6, the network will air episodes 18 and 19 on June 26 and July 10 respectively. That leaves three more episodes let to air on July 17, July 24, and July 31. As announced by The CW, the season 6 finale airs on Sunday, July 31.
As TV Line notes, that scheduling has so far been noted as tentative and could change at any point (which makes sense after seeing the Legacies series finale pushed back). And considering the season’s scheduling has been unpredictable at best, you never know what could happen.
For now, we’re going with the July 31 finale date. The CW’s deal with Netflix states that new seasons of their series streaming eight days after their finales. If Riverdale season 6 in fact ends on July 31, that means it will hit Netflix on Monday, Aug. 8. Of course, we’ll know the official Netflix release date later this month.
