Katy Keene star Lucy Hale will guest-star on an upcoming episode of Riverdale, slated to air Wednesday, Feb. 5 at 8/7c on The CW, a day ahead of the Katy Keene series premiere, E! News is reporting. In the crossover episode, Veronica will head to New York City for a college interview and check in with her old pal Katy… and also go on a shopping spree, natch.
“Before Katy Keene officially premieres, we all thought it would be super fun to do a crossover that took Veronica to Katy’s world — New York City — and established Katy in the Riverdale universe,” executive producers Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Michael Grassi said in a statement. “For our first Riverdale/Katy crossover, we couldn’t be more excited that it’s old friends Veronica and Katy — Cami and Lucy — having fun and heart-to-hearts!”
Aguirre-Sacasa also tweeted out a behind-the-scenes pic from the crossover episode:
Katy Keene, starring Hale as the titular fashion designer, is a spinoff set five years after the events of Riverdale, with Ashleigh Murray reprising her role as aspiring singer Josie McCoy. And we already know Katy and Veronica are pals: Earlier this season on Riverdale, Veronica reached out to her fashionista friend to make Halloween superhero costumes for Archie and Munro.
