Tv Season Info

At the beginning of Season 3, Archie (KJ Apa) is waiting for the verdict of his trial and decides to spend one last free weekend with Betty (Lili Reinhart), Veronica (Camila Mendes) and Jughead (Cole Sprouse). After he's sentenced to two years in jail, Archie is caught in a power struggle inside the prison, while Veronica tries to find a way to break him out. Meanwhile, Betty and Jughead investigate a series of strange incidents that seem to be connected, uncovering a weird cult that somehow managed to bring a fantasy game to life.

Critic Reviews for Riverdale Season 3

Confidently finding its groove in storylines more outlandish than anything you will find in the comics, Riverdale is still going strong

Jan 16, 2019 | Full Review…

The show's erratic quality can be an asset... but it can also be frustrating because there's constantly a better show buzzing underneath.

Jun 4, 2019 | Full Review…

Riverdale has finally hit soap-opera bingo.

May 16, 2019 | Full Review…

My only hope, with just four episodes left in the season, is that this mundanity proves to be a trap, one that will rip us forward in a shocking turn of events.

Apr 24, 2019 | Full Review…

The third season of Riverdale sees the show moving further from the ensemble feeling of the first, continuing a trend which really started in the middle of the second.

Feb 1, 2019 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

One of our wishes was always that Riverdale would embrace the inherent insanity in making a dark Archie reboot and amplifiying its silly strangeness. This season it has done so.

Audience Reviews for Riverdale: Season 3

  • Nov 21, 2019
    With a 3rd season, Riverdale narrowed its fanbase to teens, losing adults and childs as it story gets worse and worse, and bets in Archie muscles. Everything seemed forced, the dialogues are bad, Veronica in one episode wants to ruin her dads life, but in the episode next her family is everything for her, the cliches are on fire in every scene and Betty's mom understandable good last twist doesn't overcomes the typical dumb cliffhanger, which won't result with me, at least, for a long long time.

    How this has over 80% is beyond me. I'm so confused. Why is there a cult? Why was there a musical? Why did Archie get mauled by a bear? I don't know, you don't know, and I don't think the writers do either.
  • Oct 30, 2019
    Season 1 and 2 were okay, but Season 3 is so cringey it's so unbearable. Ugh
  • Oct 23, 2019
    Great show. Full of Suspense & thrill. Emotional moments Some moments were breathtaking
  • Oct 16, 2019
    -worst season ever -the plots were unrealistic especially the gargoyle and teenagers acting like high schooler -the lines were so cringe that it reminded me of a teen fan fiction -continued the show because I just wanted to know the show was tolerable to watch

    Wow.... somehow this janky third entry manages to stay incredibly interesting. Sure several sections of this season can drag on for maybe a little to long but when the plot lines hit they hit hard. This one was weird but man I had fun along the ride.
  • Oct 06, 2019
    Plot lines were a mess, very bad writing.
  • Oct 06, 2019
    Literal Garbage. Completely overwrought and the ideas were senseless. The script looks like it was written by a 10 year old with a badass imagination. I'm still hoping for this to bring back the season 1 vibe.
  • Oct 02, 2019
    Season 1 got me hooked to this show....season 2 was ok.....but now season 3 just is awful..... showing off hot bodies to compensate for the poor story line seems to be the direction this show has gone to.
