Since premiering in January, Riverdale has absolutely captured audiences' attention. The CW's murder mystery - based on the characters from Archie Comics - accumulated a passionate fan base over the thirteen episodes of its first season, with many wondering "Who killed Jason Blossom?"
And now, Netflix users will get a chance to follow the mystery for themselves. The first season of the series officially dropped on the streaming platform earlier today. Although, as with the events happening in the show's titular town, this wasn't complete without a bit of drama.
Netflix teased their inclusion of the show earlier this week, with a pretty hilarious video of Riverdale's Jughead Jones, Cole Sprouse, embracing his character's love for food by passionately eating a hamburger. The tweet gave many fans the impression that Riverdale would be uploaded on Netflix on May 18th.
This was echoed by other posts on social media, including one from Archie Comics' official Twitter account. The only problem? The upload was actually planned for the following day, May 19th.
After receiving a negative response from Twitter, Netflix covered their tracks with a cleverly-crafted tweet.
Confession: after watching a certain someone intimately eat a burger over & over, we forgot what day it was. Riverdale arrives Friday, 5/19. pic.twitter.com/1Fkd9rD77s— Netflix US (@netflix) May 18, 2017
As of the publishing of this article, Riverdale is now, in fact, available on Netflix. So whether you want to catch up on the buzzworthy show, rewatch the entire season, or start from the beginning, get ready for a fun ride.
