‘Riverdale: The Complete Second Season’ Available Now on DVD

Welcome back to the town with pep. The CW Network’s breakout hit Riverdale recently wrapped a sophomore run full of even more drama than the last. Now fans can bring home Riverdale: The Complete Second Season on DVD to relive all the milkshakes, mayhem, and musical numbers.

Riverdale: The Complete First Season is available to own Tuesday, August 7 on DVD. The four-disc set is priced at $39.99. Although you can currently stream Riverdale season two on Netflix, the physical release comes packed with bonus content you won’t find anywhere else. Here’s a rundown of the special features:

  • Caught Between Two Worlds: The Darkness Inside
  • Making the Musical: Riverdale
  • Riverdale: 2017 Comic-Con Panel
  • Riverdale Pop Quiz!
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Gag Reel

Die-hard fans of Riverdale will love the numerous deleted scenes. This is especially true if you are a fan of Madelaine Petsch’s Cheryl Blossom. Petsch’s layered portrayal of Cheryl is consistently a standout of Riverdale and that rings just as true in her deleted scenes. Another highlight is Caught Between Two Worlds: The Darkness Inside. Featuring never-before-seen interviews with cast and crew, the featurette gives an inside looking into the making of Riverdale season two.

Based on the characters from Archie Comics, Riverdale returns with its subversive take on small-town life. Determined to protect the sanctity of his town in the wake of his father’s shooting by the Black Hood, season two of Riverdale finds Archie (KJ Apa) seeking justice…and vengeance. As a civil war brews between the Northside and the Southside, loyalties are divided. Betty (Lili Reinhart) and Jughead’s (Cole Sprouse) relationship enters fragile territory when Jughead decides to join the Southside Serpents and Betty’s long-lost brother Chic returns. Veronica (Camila Mendes) finds her life upended by her father Hiram’s (Mark Consuelos) arrival and his dark schemes for the town’s future. Everyone will have to pick a side, including Queen Bee Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch), star-to-be Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray), Kevin Keller (Casey Cott), and Reggie Mantle (Charles Melton). Things are never what you’d expect in Riverdale, and that’s especially true as Archie and the gang race to avert a full-on riot and to solve the mystery of the Black Hood.

With a phenomenal 60% average viewership growth from last season, Riverdale continues to build its passionate fan base in its second season,” said Rosemary Markson, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Senior Vice President, Television Marketing. “We’re thrilled to release Riverdale: The Complete Second Season on DVD so both new and returning fans can relive all of their favorite episodes and enjoy new behind-the-scenes extras.”
