Episodes air every Wednesday in the US and arrive on Netflix UK every Thursday morning at 8am.

Show creator, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa revealed earlier this year there would be a flashback episode.

Here’s the low down of when the highly anticipated flashback episode will air.

When does the flashback episode air?

Aguirre-Sacada revealed at Comic-Con that the fourth episode of season three will be a flashback episode, following the parents of Riverdale as teenagers.

It will flashback to their relationships as teenagers and expose their “dark secrets.”

Lucky, fans will have to wait only two more weeks to see it.

Episode four will air on Halloween, Wednesday, October 31 on The CW in America.

It will then drop on Netflix UK the next day (Thursday, November 1).


The title of the flashback episode has been revealed as “The Midnight Club”.

It is inspired by the 80s teen movie, The Breakfast Club but with a much darker twist.

Ironically, cast member Molly Ringwald, who plays Mary Andrews in Riverdale, starred in the original Breakfast Club.

Anthony Michael Hall, who also starred in the Breakfast Club alongside Ringwald will play Principal Featherhead.

Aguirre-Sacasa teased: “We’re going to learn about a really, really dark secret in Riverdale that the parents have been keeping since they were in high school.”


Photos published by The CW reveal that the main cast will play their on-screen parents.

This means, KJ Apa who stars as Archie Andrews will play his dad Fred Andrews, who is currently played by Luke Perry.

Lili Reinhart will play her mother Alice Cooper (played by Madchen Amick) and Camilla Mendes who stars as Veronica Lodge will lay her mother Hermione Lodge (Marisol Nichols).

Cole Spouse who stars as Jughead Jones will play her father FP Jones (Skeet Ulrich).


As the photos show, the resemblance between the main cast and their parents is uncanny.

Riverdale season 3, episode 3 will drop on Netflix next Thursday
