So, do Betty and Archie die in 'Riverdale'?

It's not a Riverdale season finale unless someone is killed or, at the very least, believed to be killed. So when Betty (Lili Reinhart) and Archie (K.J. Apa) appear to be blown to pieces following their resolve to finally be in a mature adult relationship, it's just another day in the CW teen drama. But do Betty and Archie really die in Riverdale?

Betty and Archie rekindle old flames in the Season 5 finale. Instead of a happy ending, what they get is the surprise of finding meddling bomb expert Hiram's (Mark Consuelos) latest "gift," an explosive planted under Archie's bed.

The Season 5 finale didn't resolve Betty and Archie's very volatile storyline, but the Season 6 trailer did. As the one-minute-long clip suggests, Betty and Archie didn't just narrowly avoid getting blown to pieces — they are now ready to try for a baby.

Betty and Archie only have a few scenes in the trailer for Season 6 of Riverdale. The ones they appear in happen to be quite steamy, however. By the looks of it, they survived Hiram's evil scheming without so much as a burn scar.

What happens to Betty and Archie in the Season 5 finale of 'Riverdale'?

'Riverdale' Season 6 premieres in November 2021.

Luckily, fans will soon find out more about what might have happened to Archie and Betty on the ominous night of the bomb attack. Season 6 of Riverdale premieres on Tuesday, Nov. 16, 2021, on the CW, with what the showrunner called a miniseries of five episodes.

Season 6 seems like it will dive right back into the events of the Season 5 finale and explain what happened to our seemingly ill-fated characters.

In an interview with Deadline following the Season 5 finale, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa teased that in Season 6, "Even worse things are coming" than what viewers have seen on the show so far.

Even though this probably doesn't include Archie and Betty's demise, things probably aren't going to be easy for them or the others.

Season 6 of Riverdale kicks off with a five-episode premiere event on Tuesday, Nov. 16, 2021, at 9 p.m. EST on the CW.
