Riverdale Season 4 Is Officially Happening! The CW Renewed It
Hey, fellow Riverdale fans. We’ve got some great news to share with guys in this latest report of ours. It turns out that your favorite show is definitely going to keep going well beyond this current 3rd season because The CW has indeed awarded it a brand new season 4! The happy news was actually announced way back towards the end of January 2019 according to the folks over at TVline.com.
During Riverdale’s season 4 renewal announcement, The CW also announced the renewal of its other popular shows: The Flash, Arrow, Supernatural, Supergirl, Black Lightning, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Charmed, Legacies and Dynasty.
During the announcement, the president of The CW Mark Pedowitz had some very positive statements to say for the network as a whole. He stated, “This season, we expanded our primetime schedule to six nights with the addition of Sunday, which has been an unqualified success for the network, our affiliates and our advertisers. In addition to growing our schedule across the week, we also continue to add more year-round programming… We look forward to building on this with even more returning and new shows as we approach the May upfront.”
As for the numbers for Riverdale. The current season 3 started off with really strong Live viewership and ratings numbers, but it has since fallen quite a bit. According to TVseriesfinale.com, The season 3 premiere episode brought in a whopping 1.504 million viewers, and it scored a 0.53 ratings score for the 18-49 year old demographic.
The most recent season 3, episode 17 that aired this past Wednesday night, March 27, 2019 brought in 0.814 million live viewers, which is around 814,000, give or take. That episode scored a 0.30 rating score. The viewership numbers were much stronger around the time The CW gave it the season 4 renewal. Right after that, they started to slump a bit. These are still pretty strong numbers for a CW show. Hopefully, we can see these Live viewership and ratings numbers climb back up just a wee bit.
Season 3 has five more episodes to air before it wraps up. So, it’s definitely about to come to a close pretty soon.
