Riverdale (Series) (1997-2000)

Riverdale was a Canadian prime time soap opera which ran for three seasons (from 1997 to 2000) and is regarded as one of Canada's most successful soap operas.

The series was set in the Toronto community of Riverdale, which had the reputation of being home to many CBC employees at the time. It focused on a variety of characters and their interactions in everyday life. 94 half-hour episodes were produced.

Riverdale was developed by the producers of the British soap opera Coronation Street and produced by Epitome Pictures in association with the CBC. Riverdale was the first soap to play in primetime on CBC since Dallas several years earlier.
