The CW announced today that Riverdale will be ending after its seventh season. The news comes just one week after the network picked up the drama for Season 7, though there was no word on it being the final season at the time.

The series premiered in 2017 with a good amount of buzz that helped it become a breakout hit. Ratings were solid through its first few seasons, with it also finding a healthy audience on Netflix. The show recently surpassed the 100-episode milestone and is currently the CW's second-longest running drama.

Featuring re-imagined characters from Archie Comics, Riverdale follows Archie, Betty, Veronica, and Jughead as they navigate their high school years, and later, their young adult lives. Look for the seventh and final season in 2023.
