Riverdale is always released on Netflix US – as well as other countries – as part of a ten year old legacy agreement between the CW and Netflix, which has turned out mutually beneficial for both parties.

However, this means that all episodes of Riverdale Season 7 will drop after it has finished airing in full on the CW.

Since Season 7 of Riverdale is scheduled to end on August 23, 2023, it seems likely that the season will appear on Netflix US around a week later, at the very end of August or the very beginning of September, 2023.
