Riverdale S4Watch full episodes now
The teens of Riverdale return to our screens for more fun, drama, saucy musical numbers, and loads of trouble that would scare off most youngsters.
But first, the cast pay tribute to Luke Perry (Fred Andrews in the show), who died before the season premiered. Episode 1 is too beautiful for words as the townsfolk come together to celebrate Fred (and Luke) in a standalone episode filled with memories, love, care and above all, friendship. Then it’s onto the usual shenanigans.
The adults-playing-teen cast have really found their footing with their characters, who’re still searching for their places. The storylines involve blossoming mismatched romances, as well as darker sinister arcs that include typical Riverdale mysteries, and ex-Dawson’s Creek star Kerr Smith joins as an overly strict, bossy new principal at Riverdale High.
While the Covid-19 pandemic cut the season short by three episodes, Lea Marilla Thomas from looper.com is still happy with the ending, teasing viewers: “Riverdale has never met a cliffhanger it didn’t love, and the Riverdale season 4 finale didn’t disappoint in terms of twists and spooky reveals.”
Seasons 1 to 3 are on Netflix if you need to catch up.
