Is Riverdale Season 5 Worth Watching Or Not?
Season 5 of Riverdale concluded in October this year, completing a total of 95 episodes in the series throughout. The latest season got an 88% ratings on RottenTomatoes, which makes it a pretty decent watch. However, going by the overall viewership of the season in terms of US viewers, season 5 has got the least views in terms of its older seasons, mainly due to its weak storyline.
The show is believed to have started off great with its initial seasons, but somehow as the story progressed, the charm was lost, and so did the audience’s interest. Despite the popular cast, the season wasn’t able to pull the fans towards it.
However, despite all this, the story beautifully showcases the heartwarming scenes between friends and family, making it a bearable watch. There are some pretty interesting moments in the plot but owing to its repetitive and somewhat boring storyline, 5th season seems to be no major improvement over the previous editions.
So if you are an avid Riverdale fan and planning to binge-watch the series soon, then do not expect anything major coming your way from the story. The outlandish plotline wouldn’t entertain you much because the initial season did set our expectations high. Keeping that aside, it can be given a try to see if any upcoming season might have connections with the last season. Other than this, not an interesting watch.
Where To Stream Season 5 Of Riverdale?
The fifth season of Riverdale can be viewed on the official network The CW. However, if one doesn’t possess a cable network, then the online application of The CW and also its official website can also be used to stream the show. Other than this, alternative platforms are YouTube TV, Fubo TV, AT&T TV, and Hulu With Live TV. The episodes can also be purchased from iTunes, Amazon Prime Videos, etc.
The global streaming giant Netflix will also stream the show with all the episodes of the current season, probably by mid of October this year. It is so because the episode lands almost a week after its release on The CW in some regions. Until then, international fans can enjoy previous seasons.
Are There Any Further Seasons To Riverdale?
The fifth installment of the series was renewed in January 2020 and telecasted a year later on January 20, 2021. Before its conclusion, the sixth season also got announced in February 2021 by setting its airing on November 16 this year. So the fans should get ready for the soon-to-release season 6!
