“I am a big believer of giving series that have had a long run an appropriate send-off. We had a long conversation with Roberto [Aguirre-Sacasa] yesterday and he is thrilled with the decision. We are going to treat the show in the manner it deserves. It’s been an iconic pop culture star and we want to make sure that it goes out the right way,” CW President Mark Pedowitz said, via Deadline.

He also added that he thinks “seven years is the right amount.”

The upcoming seventh and final season will actually be premiering mid-season on The CW, and it will likely not have a shortened season, though Mark hasn’t said just how many episodes there will be.

“I’m sad to be saying goodbye to Riverdale next season, to our sets, to our crew, to our producers, to our CW family but I can speak for everyone, for Cammy, Cole, Lili and the rest of our cast that we are so grateful for everyone’s support,” KJ Apa said at The CW Upfronts. “To the fans, without the fans, none of this would be be possible.”

He added, “I can’t say I’d miss dying my hair every week, I’m looking forward to being myself again, but I promise you guys, this last season, we are going to end it with a bang, and we can’t wait to share it with you.”

This news doesn’t come out as as big of a surprise to some, as Lili and Cole have both previously hinted that the cast was ready to move on, and a seventh season would likely be the last.
