When is 'Riverdale' Season 6 Coming Out and When Will It Be on Netflix?

Riverdale fans have excitedly been waiting for a brand new season of the teen drama, and luckily they won't have to wait long.

The CW series is set to have its sixth season on the channel, and the show will have a highly-anticipated crossover between it and The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

Season 5 ended with the bombshell that Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch) intended to get revenge on Archie (KJ Apa), Betty (Lili Reinhart), and Jughead (Cole Sprouse) after learning that her ancestor Abigail was burned at the stake by their ancestors.

Here's everything you need to know about Riverdale Season 6.

When is Riverdale Season 6 coming out?

The programme was renewed back in February, with The CW confirming the news on Twitter: "Another round at Pop's! #Riverdale has been RENEWED for Season 6!"

Riverdale Season 6 will premiere on The CW on Tuesday, November 16 at 9pm ET and 8pm CT with a 5-episode event.

It is the first time the show will air on a Tuesday, after its time slot was moved from Wednesday, and it will now follow The Flash.

The premiere will come after The Flash's "Armageddon" crossover event, and Riverdale's five-episode event has been named "Rivervale."

It is during this event that the show will crossover with The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, and Kiernan Shipka will reprise her role as Sabrina Spellman.

When will Riverdale Season 6 be out on Netflix?

New seasons of Riverdale are usually released a year after they air on The CW, and Season 5 has been added to Netflix internationally.

However, the season hasn't yet been added to Netflix in the U.S. and a release date for it has yet to be revealed.

Episodes 1-5 of Season 5 are currently available to watch on The CW App and on the channel's website, and the full season can also be purchased Amazon Prime Video and also on iTunes.

What will happen in Riverdale Season 6?

Riverdale Season 5 featured a shocking finale that saw Archie and Betty get together only for them to discover a bomb underneath his bed.

The device had been left by Hiram Lodge (Mark Consuelos) after he was driven out of town by Archie and his daughter Veronica (Camila Mendes).

It is unclear how Archie and Betty made it out alive, but the pair have featured in the new trailer for Season 6 so they clearly survive.

And, while Shipka has been confirmed to appear as Sabrina in the crossover event, it has not been revealed how exactly her character will play a part in the show, though it may relate to Cheryl's quest for revenge.

Riverdale Season 6 starts airing on The CW from Tuesday, November 16 at 9pm ET.
