Riverdale is the television series that everyone is talking about and Season 2 is out across the world.
However, If you’ve got a Netflix account and you’re in the US you’ll be disappointed to know that it’s one of the only countries that isn’t showing Riverdale Season 2 on Netflix yet.
The reason Riverdale Season 2 isn’t available yet is because it airs directly on the CW network. Until Season 2 has completed being shown on CW, it won’t be available on Netflix in the US.
At the time of writing, Riverdale Season 2 is about halfway through, but with a break in airing coming up, Heavy.com claims it might not be until June 2018 that Riverdale Season 2 shows up on US Netflix.
There is however a way to watch Riverdale Season 2 in the US on Netflix right now and in this guide we’re going to show you how.
Watch Riverdale Season 2 on Netflix in the US now
Around the world Riverdale Season 2 is already available to stream on Netflix and if you live anywhere outside the United States such as the UK you’re able to watch all the episodes of Season 2 right now.
One little known fact is your US Netflix account will let you watch UK Netflix content when you’re in the UK.
Now we’re not suggesting you should hop on a plane and fly right over to the UK – although Season 2 is good enough to do that.
What we are suggesting is you grab yourself an app called a VPN. A VPN app will allow you to make it appear that you are in the UK and allow you to watch Riverdale Season 2 right now from within the US without waiting.
Best of all, a VPN will only cost you a couple of dollars a month. Less than the price of a coffee.
How to watch Riverdale Season 2 on US Netflix Step-by-Step
- Visit the VPN provider NordVPN by clicking here.
- Sign up to the service. (There’s a full 30-day money back guarantee so it’s risk-free)
- Click on VPN Apps and download and install the correct app for your device. It’s available for Android, iOS, Windows & Mac!
- Run the app and login with your account details you created when signing up.
- On the map locate the United Kingdom or click Countries and select United Kingdom from the list.
- Press Connect.
It will take about 15 seconds for the NordVPN app to get connected to the United Kingdom.
Once the app has connected all you need to do is visit the Netflix Riverdale page. You’ll now be able to choose from Season 1 and Season 2 in the episodes list and watch any of the Season 2 episodes.
When you’ve finished watching simply disconnect from NordVPN. If you want to continue watching you can reconnect at any time. You can also use it to watch other shows and movies that aren’t yet available on US Netflix.
Is using a VPN legal
You may be thinking that this all sounds a little bit sketchy and we can’t blame you.
Not to worry though. VPN services are entirely legal and their main purpose is to protect your online privacy from pesky hackers and criminals.
When using a VPN all of what you do on the internet is mixed up using what is called “encryption”. This is what stops others from snooping on what you’re doing.
A side feature is a VPN will allow you to alter your online location meaning you can change from the US to UK and watch Riverdale Season 2 risk-free.
But why just trust a random website like ours? Do a search on your favourite search-engine such as Google and you’ll see VPN services are totally legitimate and trustworthy services.
Riverdale Season 2
If you loved Riverdale Season 1 then you’re in for a treat with Season 2.
Season 2 is currently halfway through as we write this article but new episodes are released every Thursday in the UK at 8 am which is between 1 am and 3 am in the US.
We don’t want to tell you too much because we’re sure right after this you’ll be heading to sign up for a VPN service so you can watch Riverdale Season 2 on Netflix in the US right now.
Let’s just say 2.3 million people tuned in to watch the first episode of Season 2 which is far more than any episodes in Season 1.
Season 2 is considerably longer than the original season with 22 episodes versus the Season 1 total of just 13 episodes.
If you’ve managed to avoid the spoilers across the internet then you’re probably itching to know what happened after the masked villain killed Fed Andrews in front of his son. You won’t need to wonder too much because Season 2 starts right after that incident.
That’s us for Riverdale spoilers. All you need to do is get yourself a VPN service using the link below and follow the step-by-step instructions earlier in this guide. You’ll be able to watch Riverdale Season 2 on Netflix in the US right now.
