With season 3 of The CW’s Riverdale around the corner, right now is the perfect opportunity to start binge-watching! Riverdale follows a group of teenagers as they try to navigate through school, family, and relationships all while untangling the secrets of their town, Riverdale.
If Archie (KJ Apa) isn’t enough reason to watch the show, here are 3 more reasons to watch Riverdale before season 3!
1. The Suspense
The teenagers of Riverdale are far from average. Instead of normal after-school activities, Archie and friends are constantly in the middle of a suspenseful mystery. In season 1, the gang tries to solve the mystery of who murdered Jason Blossom. While in season 2, the Black Hood reigns terror over the small town and the Riverdale teens scramble to unmask the killer. Every character carries so many secrets that it just adds to the suspenseful storylines. Absolutely every episode ends in some kind of cliffhanger, leading Archie and the gang a little closer to solving whatever mystery is at hand. Every episode is guaranteed to leave you at the edge of your seat!
2. The Music
Riverdale has an amazing soundtrack! Music is a big part of Archie, Josie (Ashleigh Murray), and Veronica (Camila Mendes) lives. This, thankfully, leads to many covers of some of our favorite songs. From Duran Duran’s “Union of the Snake” to Tears for Fears “Mad World”, there is definitely music for everyone. Riverdale puts a spooky twist on most songs, fitting the mood for the show. There’s even an entire musical episode where you get to see all your favorite characters burst into song!
3. The Relationships
With everything the teens in Riverdale experience, it’s nice to see how close they remain. Friendships and romances are constantly being tested, but the core four (Archie, Betty, Jughead, and Veronica) work as a team. Of course, throughout the seasons, they have their ups and downs. The diverse relationships within each family create a dramatic storyline. Parents play a major role throughout the series. Everyone works together to unravel the secrets of Riverdale and protect their loved ones. There’s even romantic drama between Archie and Veronica and Jughead and Betty. You’ll definitely want to binge to find out what happens next!
