James Whitbrook of Gizmodo argued that Riverdale Season 6 would be even better if the show embraced the wild aspects of the source material even more.
He wrote, "Riverdale itself just embracing the utter [wildness] of the source material, especially when it’s done such a grand job of being so [wild] itself previously, is more of a lateral move than some huge leap. Screw it, have the Predator show up or something! Hell, make that new comic real and have comics Archie meet Riverdale Archie! Now that’d be fun."
Season 6 episodes of Riverdale air on Sundays at 8 p.m. EST on the CW.
