It’s been about a month since season one of Riverdale came to a close, and we’re still reeling from that final scene.
(Heads up: Major spoilers ahead!)

Is Fred Andrews going to survive? Who the heck shot even shot him?! And why would anyone think it’s okay to harm a hair on this man’s precious head?
We won’t get answers to these questions, plus a few more, until Wednesday, Oct. 11 when the show returns to The CW for season two. Oh, the agony.
To make this painstaking four-month-long wait a little more bearable, we rounded up seven shows to watch that will fill the Riverdale-size hole in your heart.
Ready to binge?
Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries
Following the fabulous Miss Fisher in 1920s Melbourne as she solves the toughest cases, this show has as much mystery as (if not, more than) Riverdale. And, as you did with Riverdale, you’ll instantly fall in love with every character on this show.

After the mysterious death of homecoming queen Laura Palmer, FBI agent Dale Cooper joins forces with the Twin Peaks sheriff’s department to uncover the truth behind the unfortunate murder.
Riverdale was heavily influenced by Twin Peaks, so you already know it’s worth watching. Plus, Mädchen Amick (Alice Cooper) plays a major part in this ’90s classic.

Female FBI agent Audrey Parker makes her way to Haven, Maine, to help the local police solve some supernatural mysteries.
Audrey is the perfect mix of Betty and Veronica, so what’s not to love? This show is also incredibly thrilling, leaving you on the edge of your seat all the way till the end.

Riverdale has plenty of strong female leads, and part of that is due to the astounding performance of Kristen Bell in the drama Veronica Mars. Without this show, female-driven TV shows probably wouldn’t be so prevalent.

A Series of Unfortunate Events
Another mystery-driven TV show, Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events follows the Baudelaire children as they attempt to discover the truth behind their parents’ deaths.
This show is full of the kind of dark humor only a true Riverdale fan can appreciate.

The Vampire Diaries
This supernatural drama has eight seasons for you to invest in, which will certainly distract you from counting down the days until Riverdale returns.
Chock-full of love and loss, it’s as heartbreaking and thrilling as Riverdale.

Rounding out the list is another relatively new show on The CW. iZombie is centered around a medical student who gets turned into a zombie, obviously.
We’d kind of be down for Riverdale to take a turn down this undead path. We shall see what season two has in store soon!
