The news comes on the heels of last week’s fab announcement of a spin-off series.

Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa celebrated the renewal news on Twitter with a picture of the characters.

“Three years ago, this show only existed as a script and this image,” he wrote. “Now, there’s a superstar group of actors playing these iconic roles. And a spectacular crew that brings our small, murderous town to life. Thrilled to be able to continue telling stories for Season 4 (!of #Riverdale) “

Meanwhile, Netflix – who stream the series – also celebrated the news with some delightful season four predictions.

  • Veronica will continue to have daddy issues
  • Episode 13 is a Marie Kondo crossover. Ethyl does not spark joy
  • Archie and Hiram bury the hatchet… IN EACH OTHER’S BACKS 
  • The entire season will be a musical

Big yes to a Marie Kondo crossover.

As for that Riverdale spin-off series, Deadline reports Katy Keene will take place years after Riverdale High School.

“There are no plans to do anything [regarding a crossover],” CW head Mark Pedowitz said. “Any of the Riverdale characters who come to Katy Keene will be older. Rober [Aguirre-Sacasa] is getting the pilot right.” 

Katy Keene, based on the comics, will be a musical dramedy focusing on the titular character. In the comics, Katy is a model, singer, and actor but in the series, she’ll be an aspiring New York City fashion designer.
