Want to own Riverdale Season 3 on Blu-Ray and DVD? Here’s everything you need to know, from the release date to where to buy your copy.
These days, most people are content to stream their favorite series on Netflix or Hulu rather than purchase them on DVD. But there are still a vast majority of television fans that prefer to own the shows they love. Riverdale boasts one of the most passionate fanbases in television, and it’s not unlikely that its fans would want to pour over every twisty minute with the ease of a disc.
Following suit with the previous home video releases of Riverdale, the third season will be released less than three months after the televised season finale. However, unlike the first two seasons, this release might be a little more difficult to track down. Season 3 appears to have been reduced to a MOD (manufacture on demand) release, meaning you won’t find it on the shelves of every Target.
Riverdale Season 3 will be released on Blu-Ray and DVD on Tuesday, Aug. 13 via Warner Archive. Listings on WBShop.com set the DVD‘s price at $39.99 and the Blu-Ray‘s price at $47.99. The third season DVD set is also available from Walmart’s website at a lower price point, with other online retailers like Amazon sure to pick up the title ahead of or after the August release date.
As of this writing, neither set’s sound and picture specifications were available, nor were the number of discs or any special features unique to either release. Fans have looked forward to the release of deleted scenes every year, but don’t get your hopes up for those to show up on the home video sets. MOD titles rarely contain special features, subtitles, or any bells and whistles for that matter. Expect the 22 Season 3 episodes and only the 22 Season 3 episodes.
In the third season of the hit CW teen drama, Archie and the gang face off against a new evil in their hometown. When a mysterious role-playing game called Gryphons & Gargoyles unleashes havoc on Riverdale, it’s up to the gang to unmask the Gargoyle King and defeat the ominous cult known as The Farm, which is led by CW-vet Chad Michael Murray. Season 3 also features a recurring role from Gina Gershon as Jughead’s mother Gladys and a special guest spot from Kelly Ripa.
