Gargoyle kings and queens, gather round. Riverdale is finally back from the season 4 hiatus. A lot happened in the midseason finale... Veronica's college admissions attempts were continuously sabotaged by her dad, Archie got back to his vigilante ways, Betty was still investigating the mysterious phone calls, and Jughead hung out with his grandpa (or something). So, grab your Pop’s-inspired milkshakes, because it’s about time we get some answers.

But first, here’s everything you need to know about how to actually watch the show, since your brain is probably conditioned to just watching whatever pops up on your Netflix homepage.

Okay, so when is it on?

New episodes air at 8 p.m. ET Wednesdays, and it comes back tonight! Just another reason to look forward to hump day.

What channel is this on again?

Riverdale is on The CW. If you have cable, good for you, fancy-pants. You can just catch it live on your TV.

What if I don’t have cable though?

No worries! There’s literally no reason to feel any type of way about cutting the cord. We’re in the golden age of streaming, so you can watch it for free the next day on The CW’s website or app.

I need to watch it live but don’t have cable, help!

Depending on where you live, you can stream it live on Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV, or DIRECTV NOW. If you don’t have Hulu with Live TV, hit up its seven-day free trial. And, you know, use all the emails you have until you finally give in and buy it.

Great, what if I completely forgot what happened last season(s)?

Call in sick to work and binge seasons 1 through 3 on Netflix instead. Or read this and this.
