Fans of “Riverdale” have to be patient for a long time: Netflix will probably not offer the missing episodes of season 5 for several months.
Waiting is one of those activities that “Riverdale” viewers should be particularly good at. For example, Netflix only makes new episodes available every week instead of uploading the entire series. In addition, the release of the 5th season was delayed some time ago. Usually, new seasons of the teen series always start in autumn. Last year, the producers had to make an exception due to the Corona crisis. The channel The CW was therefore only able to show the latest episodes from January 2021.
And even now, Netflix users cannot watch the entire 5th season. It is likely to take a while for all of the episodes to go online. As reported by Deadline magazine, among others, The CW has postponed the broadcast of the remaining episodes even further than originally planned.
“Riverdale”: When will the rest of the Season 5 episodes start on Netflix?
Netflix is currently no longer uploading any new “Riverdale” episodes. According to the broadcaster The CW, it should only continue from July 7, 2021. But this date has already expired. The American fans will probably have to wait until August 11, 2021. Since Netflix usually does not put the episodes online until one day later, it will continue on Thursday, August 12, 2021, in this country.
The 5th season of “Riverdale” will not continue until August 2021.
And how many more episodes will appear? There is currently no clarity on this. Screenrant magazine assumes at least nine episodes. Since eleven episodes have already appeared, the makers could also flirt with a total of 22 episodes. How they decide remains to be seen.
“Riverdale”: When does Season 6 start on Netflix?
But there is positive news: The CW has already ordered a 6th season of “Riverdale”. Since the broadcast of the 5th season is delayed, fans should not assume that they will see the following season in autumn 2021. On the other hand, a start in January or February 2022.
