Originally Answered: Can children under 14 watch Riverdale? It swears a bit and deals with sexual stuff and some murder and death. The only problem is: it sucks. After the 1st season its terrible.
The right age to watch Riverdale is 13 because when you are 13 years old you become more matured and sensible. Riverdale has violence, A little bit of language is there but the f words are not there. Drugs, sexual content.
Ultimately, I’m not sure when exactly Riverdale went downhill – I would argue that its first downfall was when it went off the rails in season 2/3, and its second was because it failed to embrace its own outrageousness. It had potential to be a guilty pleasure but fails when it takes itself too seriously.
It took six seasons, but Riverdale has finally gone full supernatural horror. Only two episodes in, Rivervale has already seen Pagan rituals, ghostly hauntings, and a few shocking character deaths. Additionally, the event is rife with references to horror movies and shows, including The Twilight Zone and Midsommar.
One thing that CW’s Riverdale is infamous for is its tendency to get outright weird. There are a lot of plots, characters, and dialogue that feels outright surreal for both new and old viewers. It even dips into the realm of horror. Sometimes, the show feels just plain bizarre, it isn’t even finished.
Storylines evolved from a small-town murder mystery into much larger and far more outrageous adventures. Filled with murderers, deathly board games, organ-harvesting cults, and far more, Riverdale is one of the most dangerous places to live and thus home for a large amount of storytelling.
The students at Riverdale High, including Archie, Betty, and Veronica navigate typical teen issues while dark details about their town unfold. The show is significantly darker and raunchier than the original Archie comics. The show has violence and gore including scenes depicting a murdered body.
Riverdale is a modern, fast-talking, pop culture referencing noir show. But beneath the surface, it’s highly gothic — and it’s that quality that makes it more than just another teen drama. Riverdale is currently airing on Thursday nights on The CW.
