Riverdale Season 2 Takes Another Hiatus, Episode 17 Extended Promo

Fans can expect another pause in Riverdale Season 2. The CW series will be taking another break at the beginning of April for two weeks and there will be no new episode. Instead, there will be a re-run of a previously-aired episode.

According to Comicbook, the hiatus was confirmed when the network announced the upcoming musical episode and revealed it’s scheduled. With Riverdale Season 2 Episode 17 titled “Chapter Thirty: The Noose Tightens” to air on next week, Episode 18 “Chapter Thirty-One” was expected to release on April 4.

However, the show will be re-running “Chapter Twenty Six: The Tell-Tale-Heart” and in the following week, on April 11, the network will be airing a 90-minute special titled “Harry Potter: A History of Magic.”

Nonetheless, when Riverdale Season 2 returns fans will be treated to the highly anticipated episode titled “A Night to Remember” featuring a documentary “Carrie: The Musical” put together by Jughead Jones and Riverdale High Drama Department at the school.

As per the official announcement, it is a dark narrative focusing on the gritty realities of small-town high school life.

“Riverdale High’s tragic heroine Cheryl Blossom leads the cast as Carrie White in this avant-garde production, where she is antagonized by mean-girl Chris Hargensen (recent transplant Veronica Lodge) and supported by golden-couple Sue Snell and Tommy Ross (Riverdale High’s brightest, Betty Cooper and Archie Andrews). Special appearances by budding star Josie McCoy (playing sympathetic gym teacher Miss Gardner) and Riverdale High alum Alice Cooper (as Carrie White’s mother, Margaret).”

“Carrie: The Musical” tells the story of a painfully shy, outcast teenage girl with telekinetic abilities who is oppressed by her peers and religious-zealot mother—until she’s pushed to her breaking point and unleashes a terrible revenge. The production stars Cheryl Blossom, Betty Cooper, Veronica Lodge, Archie Andrews, Reggie Mantle, Josie McCoy, Alice Cooper, Toni Topaz, Ethel Muggs, Midge Klump, and Moose Mason. Kevin Keller directs, with Assistant Director Fangs Fogarty. Special thanks to Fred Andrews of Andrews Construction for sets and lumber,” reads the official press release.

Meanwhile, next week, Riverdale Season 2 will see Toni, Veronica, and Josie come together to save their friend Cheryl from her family’s torture. As reported previously, Cheryl was sent to an asylum for conversion therapy while her mother lied to Toni that she has left for a boarding school.

An extended promo reveals the three confronting Penelope about Cheryl. but she surprises Josie and the others by handing a sketched portrait of Cheryl and Josie drawn by Cheryl.

It looks like the upcoming episode might also reveal some secrets about Cheryl and might throw light on her obsession over Josie.  At the same time, Cooper family will be in trouble when the car of the drug dealer is uncovered from the lake. Scroll down to watch the extended promo for season 2 episode 17.

Riverdale Season 2 episode 17 airs March 28 and episode 18 airs April 18 on The CW.
