'Riverdale' Producers Reveal Veronica Lodge Is Getting A Half-Sister In Season 4 - And She's 'Dangerous'

'Riverdale' Producers Reveal Veronica Lodge Is Getting A Half-Sister In Season 4 - And She's 'Dangerous'

Riverdale is set to return to UK screens tomorrow (Thursday, 10th October) and it's been revealed that there's even more surprises in store for the gang when Veronica Lodge's half-sister Hermoisa shows up.

Yes, Veronica (Camila Mendes) is getting an older sibling and Riverdale is getting a new mysterious resident this season, who is a private investigator from Miami.

Interesting - especially since Veronica is the reason her crooked businessman father Hiram (Mark Consuelos) is behind bars.

Confirming the news at New York City Comic Con, show runner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa announced that the character will be played by Mishel Prada and assured fans that she comes with Lodge traits.

He teased: "She's just like daddy but a woman, so more dangerous."

The fourth season starts with Archie Andrews (KJ Apa) receiving a devastating call about his father Fred.

The character has notably been written out of the show after the actor who played him, Luke Perry, died in March aged 52, after a suffering a stroke.

Sad scenes from his memorial play in the trailer, and we see Archie endeavour to turn the boxing gym into a coaching school for kids.

After Luke's death, it was announced that the first episode of season four, titled 'Chapter Fifty-Eight: In Memoriam', would be a tribute episode to the former cast member.

Speaking to TV Line about the finer details, show runner Roberto revealed the episode would not begin with a recap as former series have.

"After we finished the episode, everyone said, 'You know what? You don't really need that,'" he said.

"The producers also wanted a little bit of extra time, so we took out the 'previously on'... We wanted to let the episode breathe a little."
