When will Riverdale Season 5 in the US on Netflix?
The US will have to wait even longer for Season 5. Season 4 arrived on Netflix about a week after the season finale in May 2020.
With the release now postponed by three months (and the extra hiatus), you can probably expect the new series to come out on Netflix US between August or October 2021 at the earliest.
We predicted we could get to the first half earlier, but that has yet to come to fruition, which means we’ll have to wait the entire season before it hits Netflix.
If you are worried Riverdale possibly leaving Netflix US, don’t worry as it is meant to stay on Netflix for the life of the show plus a few years after that.
In the meantime, when you’ve caught up with everyone Riverdale, Come around Chilled adventures from Sabrina if not already done. Even if you can (it’s not available on Netflix) give Katy Keene an attempt too, since it is also within the shared Archie Comics universe.
Even if you are concerned about the future of. wonder Riverdale, it was extended for a sixth season in February 2021.
