Ahead of Katy Keene‘s February series premiere, we’ll get to see her AKA Lucy Hale meet up with Veronica Lodge for a crossover episode.
Camila Mendes’s Lodge will head to New York for a college interview and will meet up with Katy for a shopping spree.
“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,” said Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Michael Grassi, executive producers. “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!”
Katy Keene takes place five years ahead of Riverdale. Hale’s Katy is an aspiring fashion designer, who’s chasing her dreams in NYC with friends. These friends include inspiring singer Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray), Jorge Lopez/Ginger (Jonny Beauchamp), and Pepper Smith (Julia Chan).
Remember when Veronica reached out to a fashion friend to make Archie and Munroe’s superhero costumes? Could this have been Katy?
The crossover will air Wednesday, Feb. 5 at 8 p.m., and Katy Keene will premiere the next day, Thursday, Feb. 6 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
