The CW Renews Riverdale For Season Two

While those aren't terribly exciting stats, they're better than The CW's other new shows this season, No Tomorrow and Frequency, both of which are expected to be canceled.

For those not yet attuned, Riverdale is described as a "surprising and subversive" take on Archie comics, featuring among its cast Lili Reinhart, Cole Sprouse, Ashleigh Murray, Luke Perry, KJ Apa, Madelaine Petsch, Camila Mendes, Marisol Nichols and Twin Peaks alum Mädchen Amick.

The CW's Riverdale might not be excelling (per se) in terms of ratings, but the popular show is still a favored part of the CW lineup.

The series critically acclaimed first season kicked off back in January with 1.4 million total viewers and a 0.5 demo rating before evening out to a season-to-date average of 1.2 million total viewers and a 0.4 demo rating.
