Riverdale season three has marked quite a change in the show’s tone, yet fans have seemingly been loving it nonetheless.
The CW hit show has been bringing more supernatural elements in and its led some fans to speculate that it could have something to do with The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
The Netflix show has already been confirmed to be part of the same televisual universe, and they could be preparing for a crossover episode in the future.
However, fans were left baffled and upset when they tuned in to watch the sixth episode of season three of Riverdale, only to discover it wasn’t on.
Some fans were so upset, in fact, that they took to Twitter to voice their opinions on the matter.
One said; “I made a whole big deal about the rules of watching Riverdale with me tonight and got into a fight with my grandma, and it’s not even on tonight so I look so dumb.”
Another added: “I’ve been looking forward to watching Riverdale all day. I get home and go to turn it on just to find out it’s not on tonight.”
One fan was very angry indeed and used some rather colourful language in the process.
This fan tweeted: “I’m honestly so f*****g mad Riverdale isn’t on tonight because of these f*****g music awards. What the f**k am I supposed to do now?”
Another one wrote: “Hoping next week’s episode of Riverdale makes up for not having one tonight. I’m having withdrawals.”
Yet, what was the reason behind the show’s absence and when will Riverdale return?
Riverdale fans will have to wait until next week, November 28, to watch episode six of season three.
The episode will be called Manhunter and will see Betty (played by Lili Reinhart) follow some clues which will help her uncover the real identity of the Gargoyle King.
The Gargoyle King has been tormenting the citizens of Riverdale and the game, Gryphons and Gargoyles, has caused more than a few deaths already.
This isn’t the first time Riverdale season three has skipped a week on The CW.
There was also no new episode of Riverdale this Halloween, much to fans’ displeasure.
In its place, The CW screened a rather chilling episode of the Charmed reboot.
Hopefully, next week’s episode will be worth the wait as Betty starts to get to the bottom of the Gargoyle King mystery.
Riverdale season three airs on Wednesdays in the US and Thursdays on Netflix.
