Why Netflix Won't Cancel Riverdale?

Sabrina fans are disheartened by the fact that Netflix chose to cancel Chilling Adventures of Sabrina but not Riverdale. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has a rating of 7.6/10 while Riverdale has a 7/10 rating. Lately, Riverdale is getting a lot of bad reviews because of the plot.

This show makes no sense, the first season is pretty good but the rest of the seasons are just terrible. They talk like they’re in the medieval times when they’re just teenagers. No teenagers talk like that or act like that. I feel like the writers to this show are 12 years old writing fanfiction.

Audience Review.

So the question arises, why Netflix chose not to cancel Riverdale? It’s because they can not. CW owns the show. Why would CW choose to keep it going? Because the cast now has huge fan-following. Fans watch it for the cast now not for the plot anymore. It’s a fact. However, fans are still watching the show even though the plot makes no sense. So, CW still makes enough money from the show.

Can Netflix bring Chilling Adventures of Sabrina back?

While Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is canceled, fan outrage might make Netflix reconsider their decision. Netflix has yet to comment on this cancellation.
