7 Addicting TV Shows To Watch If You Love Riverdale

Today is the day we’ve all been waiting for for months, guys! No, it’s not the day Facebook is finally destroyed, thought that day might be coming. Today is the day that Riverdale finally returns to our TV screens after a brief hiatus. I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty excited to see my favorite character/biggest enemy Jughead Jones enter my life again. But, as with any weekly TV show, it can be hard to get your fill of drama and suspense when you are waiting seven days between each episode. Luckily, we have streaming services to help us out with that.

I’m sure you’re going to be tuning into The CW every week, but on the days that won’t be watching Riverdale, you’ll need something else to watch. And since Riverdale is sort of a specific genre of show, it can be hard to find something that you’ll like. Luckily for you, I spend a lot of my free time watching too many TV shows, so I’ve put together this list of shows you will totally love if you are addicted to Riverdale right now. Check them out!


Twin Peaks

Before Riverdale aired, the writers said it would be a "modern-dayTwin Peaks, for teens" which is what drew me to it. Twin Peaks is also centered around the murder of a teen and how that affects the rest of the town. Of course, there is a ton of relationship drama. Plus, Betty's mom plays a teen on Twin Peaks, so in a way, it COULD be a Riverdale prequel (at least in my head). You can check out this show on Netflix.

Stranger Things

I'm sure you've heard the hype about this one, but now is the time to check out Stranger Things if you haven't already. The new season airs on Netflix at the end of October, and it will pick up a few years after the first season ended. I don't spoil the plot for you, but let's just say that it starts out with a missing kid in the '80s and then sh*t just goes down fast.

Teen Wolf

RIP to my favorite show of 2012. Teen Wolf ended this year, but the show's first few seasons are a must watch for any Riverdale-fan. It stars Scott McCall as, ya know, a werewolf. It's spooky but also has the romantic story lines that we all live for.  You can watch Teen Wolf on MTV.com.

Santa Clarita Diet

This show didn't get that much love, but it's perfectly creepy and hilarious. It's a little more ~bloody~ than Riverdale, but it's still fun. It stars the queen Drew Barrymore as a newly dead mom just tryna live life. Yes, she's a zombie, but a good zombie! You can check it out on Netflix.

One Tree Hill

Okay, if you don't love the creepy murder-y aspect of Riverdale, but you're addicted to the teen drama aspect, it's time for you to revisit One Tree Hill. It follows two teen basketball rivals who DON'T get along-and just so happen to be brothers. They each have their own relationship drama that will have you marathoning for days. The drama is almost TOO overwhelming, which is what makes it truly amazing. You can check it out on Hulu.

How To Get Away With Murder

Death! Love! Murder! All of the things you want in a good TV show are in this one. It follows a bunch of law students as the piece together cases while still dealing with their own personal drama. It can get a little hard to keep up with this show, but it's worth the watch. You can check it out on Netflix.

Pretty Little Liars

I feel like this one is a little obvious, but in case you might have missed the PLLcraze, now is the time to get into it. It has everything- murder, love triangles, evil twins, and great outfits. You can check it out on Netflix.
