Kelly Ripa has booked a guest starring role on the CW's Riverdale.
Ripa broke the news of her casting on Instagram, revealing that she will play the role of Hiram's alleged mistress.
According to Us Weekly, her character is described as “a beautiful, icy femme fatale who gets caught up in a conspiracy that’s much bigger than she initially realized.”
As to what to expect in next week's episode, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa previewed:
"[The next episode] really shows how deep in the game and its mythology Jughead is, and the dramatic question is how deep can Jughead go without losing himself?," the EP said.
"The answer is he starts to lose himself. I think you really see the promise of that warning fulfilled in the next episode. 'The Great Escape' is a hint of what’s to come. We’re going to find out if Archie’s going to spend the rest of his time in juvie or if something’s going to happen.”
BONUS SPOILER BITS:
- The Gargoyle King is "definitely" season 3's Big Bad, said the EP “and he keeps rearing his ugly head and branch arms” the rest of the season.
- Principal Featherhead’s mysterious demise does tie in to the current season's mystery, and Aguirre promises that “we will reveal who did it."
