Not every show can land an early renewal with a television network, but not every show is Riverdale.

On Tuesday, news broke that the highly successful and ever-evolving series is coming back for season seven.

The show is currently in the midst of season 6, and recently returned to a new time slot on Sunday nights following a four-month hiatus.

In addition to Riverdale, The CW granted early renewals to five of its scripted shows, including The Flash, Nancy Drew, and All American.

According to Variety, the network's chairman and CEO Mark Pedowitz said these shows "will serve as the start of a solid foundation utilizing some of our most-watched series for us to build on for next year and beyond."

The network exec added that shows such as Riverdale "are also important to our overall digital strategy, as they are some of our most-streamed and socially-engaged programming."

Final decisions regarding renewals for The CW's remaining scripted shows like Batwoman, Legends of Tomorrow, and Charmed will be announced in May.

Though Riverdale, which first aired in 2017, is returning for a seventh season, whether it'll serve as the show's final season is currently unknown.

For now, fans can sit back and bask in the glory of its renewal.

Catch the remaining episodes of Riverdale's sixth season on Sundays at 8 PM CST on The CW.
