Is Riverdale Worth The Hype? (Spoiler Free)


Riverdale has just come to an end, well the first season has anyway. The first season finished on Friday and I wanted to write a blog post on it there and then, but I had more important things coming up so instead I wrote a shorter post in its place (it was an update on my quarterly goals, check it out!)

Anyway, I’m writing the post now ready to schedule it for Monday morning (or afternoon, whenever I decide.) And I’m really excited to write it, so let’s get on with it!

First things first, I’ll give you a summary of Riverdale before we dive into the post for those that haven’t watched or basically don’t have a clue what it’s all about.

Riverdale is a US teen drama TV programme that’s also posted on Netflix. The main plot surrounds the death of Jason Blossom, the troublemaker Cheryl Blossom’s brother. Throughout the season they attempt to find the truth about what happened on that fateful night with a few plot twists in between. There are also other sub plots throughout the season which make it more exciting to watch such as the relationships.

Like Stranger Things being a sci-fi yet I still enjoyed the show, Riverdale isn’t the typical programme that I would go for since it’s a teen drama. After the first episode I was skeptical as to whether I would like it or not. But I’m glad that I continued to watch it, without being bias, because I think it’s great. It never failed to amaze and shock me, even in the final episode of season one as they left it on a cliffhanger!

The characters were great to watch too. It was intriguing to watch the drama and problems that each of them dealt with throughout the programme. At the same time, it was intriguing to see how the problems were somehow connected to Jason Blossom’s death in some way, shape or form – whether that be a family members possible motive or something else. (See how hard I’m not to give things away right now?!)

Not to mention that the people who played the characters did a great job too! (I’ve really come to love Lili Reinhart who plays Betty Cooper especially.)

Riverdale is generally really great, and if you haven’t watched it yet you should really give it a chance. You’ll never be bored watching it (or at least I wasn’t anyway, and I can get bored really easily when I’m watching new things.) It’s a great show with a great plot behind it!

So, is Riverdale worth it? Yes, definitely. I’m so excited for the second season, especially when the final episode left me hanging with questions still!

Have you watched Riverdale? If so, did you think it was worth the hype or not?

  1. I has heard so much about this show and really didn’t get the hype. Then my best friend convinced me to watch an episode one night and oh my gods I was hooked we binged the entire 1st season (what was out) that weekend. I loved the story line and the darkness behind certain good characters. I can’t wait for season 2 now! Safe to say, I think it’s worth the hype.

    1. I was skeptical about it to begin with too, but someone suggested it to me on twitter! I can’t wait for season 2 either, it’s definitely worth the hype.
