Season 6 of ‘Riverdale’ is named ‘Rivervale’ for a dark purpose.
Riverdale Season 6 is titled Rivervale for a reason. You might be surprised by the response. The hit CW series follows a group of teens in Riverdale who are trying to live their best lives. Riverdale’s major characters are based on characters from Archie Comics.
So, what’s the deal with Riverdale Season 6’s slight name change? Don’t get too worked up, Riverdale fans: the name change isn’t permanent. It’s only for Season 6’s first five episodes. But what’s the deal with the name change? Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Riverdale’s showrunner, told TV Line that the CW approached him about filming a five-part special event for Season 6. “‘What haven’t we done, and what do people often ask us about?’ we [the writers]wondered. And we hadn’t yet ventured into supernatural or overt horror, which is something that our fans, as well as the cast, frequently inquire about. So I thought to myself, ‘Oh wonderful, now is the time to do it.'” The Rivervale five-part event could explain how Kiernan Shipka’s character Sabrina Spellman, who died in Season 6, Episode 4, could possibly come back to life. After all, Sabrina did die in The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’s Season 4 conclusion. ‘Riverdale’s’ Musicals Just Aren’t Cutting It for Fans if Rivervale is meant to be a bit of an alternate Riverdale universe,’Riverdale’s’ Musicals Just Aren’t Cutting It for Fans if Rivervale is meant to be a bit of an alternate Riverdale universe,’Riverdale’s’ It would no longer explain Sabrina’s survival. And, hey, we’re all in favor of this creepy crossover event taking place! Rivervale (@thecwriverdale) shared this on Twitter: “Roberto revealed in the same TV Line interview what the creepy atmosphere for the first five episodes of Season 6 would be.” “There is a common thread that runs across all five of them. The first episode is folk horror, the second is ghost stories, the third is “the devil has arrived to Rivervale,” and so on.” As a result, Riverdale is essentially a tribute to the Riverdale writers’ favorite horror genres.
That’s pretty much the vibe Rivervale is giving out right now. It’s still unclear how Rivervale will fit into Riverdale Season 6’s overall story. When Cheryl Blossom found that one of her ancestors, Abigail, was a witch, Season 5 of Riverdale got a little witchy.
