Riverdale is a television show based on the classic Archie comics series. But this is most certainly *not* your mother’s (or grandmother’s) comics show. It’s a neo-noir show filled with plenty of teen drama, but also mystery, murder, and melancholia. With so many different genres represented, it’s no wonder that there are so many Riverdale fans.

When discussing other shows like Riverdale, it should be mentioned that the choices listed here also represent a variety of different genres, though many are teen dramas – and a few of those are also neo-noir. Riverdale similar movies include the teen cult classic Heathers, Jawbreaker, Brick, Hard Candy, and Donnie Darko. All of these are excellent examples of the best teenage noir films.

But what about Riverdale similar shows? If you feel the need to binge, you’ve got a ton of options, starting with arguably one of the greatest TV shows ever created: Twin Peaks. Other great TV show options include True Detective, Veronica Mars, The Killing, Stranger Things, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Vote for your favorite shows like Riverdale – it will give everyone something to watch until the next season arrives.
