For four seasons the "Riverdale" kids around Archie, Betty and Veronica have been trying to grow up while people around them are disappearing, being murdered or, at best, just falling in love and falling in love again. On Thursday, the streaming giant finally released the absolute season highlight for many fans: the musical episode!
These have been a tradition of serial trailers for decades. In the 90s the cast of "Xena" tried a few snappy numbers, later it was the stars of "Buffy", "Scrubs" or "Grey's Anatomy". "Riverdale" even followed up and produced several musical specials.
We remember: After the last musical performance on "Riverdale High" developed into a bloodbath and a student was killed, this year a variety show is supposed to be quite harmless. Fans of the series can safely imagine that this plan will not work in the new 17th episode of the fourth season with the title "Wicked little town" ...
Fans have to worry about the Riverdale final
After the musical special, however, "Riverdale" fans have to be patient: nothing turns into a cozy series binging. Because the next episode will not be available on Netflix next Thursday, but only on April 30th. The reason: The streaming giant is only allowed to make the episodes available after the TV premiere in the USA - and this is only due the day before.
As "Filmstarts" reports, this is partly due to the corona-related production stops in the USA. There will definitely be three "Riverdale" episodes that have already been turned over, and the final of season four is still open. Because two episodes are still missing to complete the season. It is unclear whether fans will still be able to see them or will have to live with an incomplete season this year.
