Riverdale wraps up its sixth season next month, with their seventh and final season arriving in 2023, with star KJ Apa already making plans for his post-Riverdale life.

The 24-year-old actor was born and raised in Auckland, New Zealand, and starred in a New Zealand soap opera dubbed Shortland Street before landing the role of Archie Andrews on The CW's Riverdale following a global talent search.

Apa revealed to US Weekly during The CW upfronts in May that he plans on returning to New Zealand later this year.

'I’ll go back [to New Zealand]. Yeah, 100%. I’m going back this year,' Apa said, adding he wants his son with 28-year-old Berry, who he married in 2020, to see his homeland.

'I want my son to know his family over there. I gotta convince my girl to think about moving over there. Maybe,' he added.

He's been romantically involved with French model Berry since 2020, and they welcomed son Sasha Vai Keneti Apa in September 2021.

The actor hasn't been back home to New Zealand in three years, due to strict COVID-19 travel restrictions.

The CW renewed Riverdale for Season 7 back in March, but revealed in May that it would be the final season, which Apa said that he and most of the cast saw coming.

'I think a few of us, we saw it coming,' Apa said, noting that the cast had no say in the decision.

'I can’t speak for anyone else, but I’ll be really sad to say goodbye to Archie, to Riverdale, to our sets, to our crew,' he added.
