The new take on Archie and the kids of Riverdale has been a big enough hit for The CW that the network has decided to renew the show for a second season.

On a competitive Thursday night, RIVERDALE posts tremendous ratings gains on a delayed viewing basis, particularly with its young skewing audience, growing 78% in adults 18-34 and 85% in women 18-34 in Live+7 day ratings over Live+Same Day. In the few weeks since its premiere, the buzzy drama has quickly become one of The CW’s most streamed shows on the network’s digital platforms, including The CW app and CWTV.com.

I have dropped off my weekly viewing of Riverdale in favor of binge watching over the summer, but I do like Riverdale for what it is. There is no word if Riverdale will remain in its current Thursday night slot or if it will move somewhere else in the schedule. We’ll just wait for that news when the Fall schedule is announced.
