Why Is Season 5 of Riverdale Still Not On Netflix?!


Hey everyone!  Riverdale is one of my favorite shows, but this year after watching a few episodes I decided to do something I’ve never done with this show before.  I decided after tuning into a handful of episodes to stop watching the season weekly on the CW and just wait until the season was over and watch it on Netflix.  The Season 5 Finale of Riverdale aired on the CW well over a week ago now, and yet Season 5 of Riverdale is still not up on Netflix!  What is going on?

That’s a good question!  I have no idea why the latest season of Riverdale is still not on Netflix.  After a show on the CW has its season finale the series usually appears about a week later on Netflix.  So, it’s quite a mystery to me as to why Riverdale’s latest season isn’t on Netflix yet because it should have been up on Netflix this past Thursday.

On Netflix there’s a section where you can see what shows will be premiering throughout the current week as well as the week ahead, and as of now Riverdale Season 5 is not listed to premiere this week or next week.  I am so confused by all of this.  

Riverdale DinerMaybe there is a new deal between the CW and Netflix that I am not aware of for the series Riverdale.  Or maybe Netflix will be premiering Season 5 and Season 6 together, hence possibly explaining why Season 5 is still not up.  I don’t know.  Once again, I’m confused.

A big reason as to why I am bummed about missing this season on the CW is that this year the musical episode featured music from one of my favorite Broadway shows ever, Next to Normal.  I can not wait to see this musical episode of Riverdale, which I understand also serves as the Season 5 Finale.  I can’t wait to see how the songs were filmed, and what characters sang what songs.  Where are you, Season 5 of Riverdale on Netflix?!  This Musical Theater Nerd needs to see the musical episode for Season 5 like now!

This article was kind of just to vent, but also if any of you out there know the answer to why Riverdale Season 5 is not yet up on Netflix, do tell, because this TV Nerd is super curious to know why.

Since we all know that I haven’t watched all of Season 5 of Riverdale yet, no spoilers, but….
