Riverdale’s streaming schedule on The CW is severely distressing Netflix’s schedule. Fans are anticipating that Riverdale will be discarded from US Netflix. When will US Fans get to see Season 5 of the series? What is the final schedule of the release dates?
All your questions are answered below in this blog.
Riverdale has been in the US Top 10 of Netflix, despite the criticisms being thrown on its late releasing schedule. It remained in the Top 10 between May 15, 2020, to June 11, 2020.

Why was there Lagging in releasing Season 5 in all regions?
Riverdale’s original schedule to make its release in The CW lagged from its October Schedule. The reason behind this was the halt of production in the wake of the pandemic. Another reason fans were anticipating was the lesser episodes in the previous season.
ProductionWeekly spoke about the production, and the shooting did start in August 2020. But the actual news was the shooting didn’t start until it was later September 2020. So so long as the wait, the Riverdale series began airing on January 20, 2021.

Story till now: Riverdale Season 1-Season 4
Revolving around the life of Archie, aspiring to become a musician, and having a tough time maintaining a balance amongst his life, college, and love. Archie and his group later get entangled in the mysteries of Riverdale.
Archie finds an inner desire and inclination towards Music and wants to pursue a career in Music, unlike following his Dad’s ambition. The Series is all about High School life, the Puppy-Love, the intricacies of relationships, and solving unusual problems.
Release Date of Riverdale Season 5
New episodes of every season are added generally in May, and sadly, this time, it isn’t the same. Riverdale’s Season 5 was to be added to US Netflix this year in September or October, but I’m pretty sure it isn’t happening. Earlier, it was prophesied that the Series’ Season 5 would make a comeback in July and watch in the coming weeks.
Now, for the time being, US Netizens need to wait till Mid November to watch Riverdale’s Season 5 after its final episode is aired in The CW and consecutively after eight days.
Will the Star Cast Change?
All the lead characters will mostly remain unchanged, such as KJ Apa, Cole Strouse, Camilla Mendes, Lili Reinhart, and many more who were already seen in the last season.
A new entrant is Erinn Westbrook, who’ll be playing the role of Tabatha Tate, granddaughter of Pop Tate. The sad news is Skeet Ulrich, playing the role of FP Jones, has left the series. Hence will not be seen in any of the episodes.
There were rumors of Marisol Nichols, who plays the role of Hermione Lodge, leaving the series, but it seems false because she’s seen shooting for Season 5. The role of Chad Gekko will be played by Chris Mason, who would be Veronica’s better half.
The hypothesis of Season 5
There would be a lot of drama, starting from Veronica Chad Separation and Veronica getting back to Archie after Archie and Betty break up. Likewise, Fangs and Kevin are also parting ways. Of course, Toni is blessed with a baby and so many other dramas.
In the end, it’s shown Jughead goes missing after collecting some Maple Mushrooms.
Netflix’s Schedule for Riverdale Season 5
Riverdale continues to be on top in almost every country internationally. As per the algorithm, Riverdale will continue to be on top basically on Netflix’s Top US series. The viewers’ watch time is highly impressive.
Suppose we go by the timescale after its US release in The CW, Riverdale streams on Netflix shortly. They have an interval or gap of 1 day. Generally, Netflix streams at 8 AM GMT; before that, The US premiers the Series on Wednesday in The CW.
Long Wait for the US Netizens: Riverdale Season 5
If analyzed properly, then the results are clear. The US fans have to wait a little longer. The last season was aired after a week on US Netflix after its final season, streamed in May 2020.
The final episode of Season 5 is anticipated to Stream on September 29th, 2021, which means the US fans will get to see it in the 2nd week of October 2021.
There’s a lot of drama in this upcoming season, and it’s worth the wait. I feel quite a pity for the US Fans but never mind “Better Late than Never.” So with this, if you are looking forward to watching Riverdale Season 5, Comment Down Below.
