The terminal season of The CW’s teen drama Riverdale is on the firmament. As the show gears up for its seventh season, conceiver and showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has provided a first glimpse of the new season, sharing the script cover for the first episode of Season 7 and with it the premiere’s title. With truly impeccable timing, Aguirre-Sacasa has betrayed that the episode is titled “Don’t Worry, Darling.”
In new weeks, Olivia Wilde’s movie of the same name (sans the comma) has been the center of quite a bit of drama, from scandalous voicemails to the Harry Styles and Chris Pine spit-gate and more.
Although, Riverdale’s newly next scene holding the same title may not necessarily be solely accredited to the controversy. The new title continues to follow the trend of the show naming its scenes to respect famous movies and shows.
Its most new sixth season holds some fairly discernible homages, added: “The Serpent Queen’s Gambit” (referencing The Queen’s Gambit), “Death at a Funeral” (referencing… Death at a Funeral), and the annual musical episode “American Psychos,” which primarily respecting the American Psycho the Musical authored by Aguirre-Sacasa, focusing of the Bret Easton Ellis novel — most people also recognize it for the 2000 movie adaptation led by Christian Bale.
When Season 6 ended, the gang certainly put a stop to Percival Pickens, bringing him back in time in order to force him to honor a deal he had wormed his way out of.
The season 7 premiere episode is written by Aguirre-Sacasa and Danielle Iman, and directed by Ronald Paul Richard.
The final season of Riverdale does not yet have a release date, but it is expected to premiere sometime in mid-season 2023. Catch up on Seasons 1-6 now on Netflix. Check out Aguirre-Sacasa’s post below.
