Riverdale has been a worldwide success since the teen drama about the strange American town debuted back in 2017. The show takes its cue from the stories from Archie Comics however, Riverdale is a much darker beast compared to its source material. The CW series has run for four seasons to date and a fifth outing got the green light earlier this year.
During its run, Riverdale has won countless accolades including gongs at the Teen Choice Awards, the Saturn Awards and the Leo Awards.
Riverdale has developed a global fanbase with the core four stars KJ Apa, Lili Reinhart, Cole Sprouse and Camila Mendes becoming household names.
Season four is on a short break and will be returning on April 8 on The CW in America and April 9 to Netflix UK.
Some avid viewers have been wondering about actress Mendes and her star power and net worth. Express.co.uk has everything you need to know.

How much is Riverdale actress Camila Mendes worth?
Mendes is an actress with Riverdale marking her biggest role to date.
Since finding fame as the savvy Veronica, Mendes has also had parts in films The New Romantic, The Perfect Date and Coyote Lake.
IMDb has listed Palm Springs, Netflix thriller Windfall and Secret: All Strength No Sweat among her upcoming projects this year.
She would have accumulated significant wealth from Riverdale as one of the leads in the show.
Variety reported in 2018 how the four stars of the show Apa, Mendes, Sprouse and Reinhart were paid the same fee for their Riverdale roles.
The publication stated Mendes and her three co-stars each earned an estimated £33,000 ($40,000) per episode.
Riverdale will have aired a total of 79 episodes once season four concludes, which means she will earn an estimated £33,000 ($40,000).
However, this number doesn’t include the fee she will be receiving from season five of Riverdale, which was ordered in the new year.

Also, this figure doesn’t account for any pay rises the cast may have been given as the show has become a success.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Mendes is an estimated £2.4 million ($3 million).
This figure can’t be verified but Mendes would have also added to her wealth from the fees for her other acting roles.
Mendes has also appeared in the music videos for Give a Little by Maggie Rogers and Side Effects by The Chainsmokers featuring Emily Warren, which again would contribute to her fortune.

The actress has a strong singing voice which she has demonstrated numerous times on Riverdale, most notably during the show’s musical episodes and interludes at La Bonne Nuit.
Surprisingly, Mendes hasn’t embarked on a professional singing or music career.
Nevertheless, she could conceivably launch one given her success and profile as an actress.
Speaking to Women’s Health about her success, Mendes said: “I’ve been living on such a high. But it’s not going to be up forever.
“There’s going to be a plateau. And there’s going to be a moment where it maybe goes down, and I need to be prepared for that.”
