Following a week-long break, Riverdale returns Wednesday night with a trip to the past for their own Breakfast Club-themed episode. Titled “The Midnight Club,” the fourth episode of Season 3 will see the regular actors play the younger versions of their parents, so it should be interesting to see how it plays out.
The newest episode airs Wednesday night at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW. If you don’t have cable or can’t get to a TV, you can watch a live stream of the show (or DVR it, or watch it on-demand) on your computer, phone or streaming device via one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services:
The CW (available live in select markets, which you can find here) is one of 85 channels included in the main Fubo bundle. You can sign up for a free 7-day trial right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the show on your computer via the FuboTV website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the FuboTV app.
If you can’t watch live, FuboTV comes with 30 hours of Cloud DVR (with the ability to upgrade to 500 hours), as well as a “72-Hour Lookback” feature, which allows you to watch most shows up to three days after they air even if you forgot to record them or you signed up later.
In addition to a Netflix-like on-demand streaming library, Hulu also offers a bundle of 50-plus live TV channels, including the CW (available live in select markets, which you can find here). You can sign up for “Hulu with Live TV” right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the show on your computer via the Hulu website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Hulu app.
If you can’t watch live, “Hulu with Live TV” comes with both its extensive on-demand library (which has most shows available after they air) and 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage (with the ability to upgrade to “Enhanced Cloud DVR,” which gives you 200 hours of DVR space and the ability to fast forward through commercials).
DirecTV Now offers four different channel packages, all of which include the CW (available live in select markets, which you can find here). You can sign up for a free trial right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the show on your computer via the DirecTV Now website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the DirecTV Now app.
If you can’t watch live, DirecTV Now includes cloud DVR, although it is in the Beta stage.
Here’s a look at the extended promo for Season 3 Episode 4, which is titled “The Midnight Club”
Here’s the synopsis for the episode:
When Betty (Lili Reinhart) confronts Alice (Madchen Amick) about Gryphons and Gargoyles, Alice has no choice but to come clean about how she, along with a young Fred (KJ Apa), FP (Cole Sprouse), Hermoine (Camila Mendes), Hiram (guest star Michael Consuelos), Sierra (Ashleigh Murray), Penelope (Madelaine Petsch) and Tom (Casey Cott), played the game in the early 90’s – and how a shocking mystery has been plaguing them all ever since.
In the Breakfast Club-esque flashback, all the regular actors will play the younger versions of their parents, while the younger version of Mark Consuelos’ Hiram will be played his real-life son, Michael Consuelos.
Of course, while that all sounds like it will be fun to watch, this episode also sets up to be quite a bit darker than the Breakfast Club.
“The Midnight Club was when we all were in detention together and they uncovered this secret game that everybody started playing,” said Madchen Amick, who plays Alice. “It really takes you into a dark, twisted, mental space, and then we ended up losing a life along the way.”
