Based on characters from Archie Comics, Riverdale debuted in 2017 to positive reception, fueled by its massive popularity on Netflix. However, the show’s ratings have dropped in recent years, with the premiere for season six seeing a 45% drop in viewership compared to season five (via TheWrap).

The show already features a cast that includes KJ Apa, Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes, Cole Sprouse, Madelaine Petsch, and Casey Cott. The show also marks the final television appearance of late actor Luke Perry, who passed away in 2019.

However, fans seem to have been somewhat reassured by this information after recent seasons. You can check out some of the reactions below.

Talking to TVLine Regarding the cancellation of the show, Apa, who plays Archie, said: “I’m a bit sad. I try not to think about it, because the more I think about it, the more real it becomes.

“I think many of us have seen it come, [season] Seven most is probably the final season. So I’m not surprised. “

The CW has interrupted several shows in recent weeks, including Legends Of Tomorrow after seven seasons, age after five seasons and Heritage after four seasons.
