Riverdale Casts Veronica's "Dangerous" Sister for Season 4 - Watch Trailer

at .

Riverdale is bringing in a new member of the Lodge family for Season 4. 

During the show's New York Comic-Con panel, it was revealed that Mishel Prada would take on the role of Veronica's "dangerous" older sister. 

Given that the Lodges are not exactly known for being the nicest of families, then it's not surprising to hear that Hiram's eldest child will arrive to cause trouble.

It's unclear what brings Hermosa to town, but it probably has something to do with her father being in jail. 

Whether Veronica and Hermosa will be friends has not been revealed, but given that Veronica turned against their father, there's a good chance they will be adversaries.

It has not been revealed which episode is Prada's debut, so fans will have to watch the show when it debuts later this week. 

A brand new trailer was unveiled for Riverdale Season 4, and some of the cast members, as well as EP Roberto Aguirre Sacasa, were at NYCC to tease what's to come.

Fred's death will haffectArchie. The red-head will set out to be a better person to keep his father's memory alive. He does that by making the gym more of a community center to allow people to drop in and out at their own desire. 

His ultimate goal is to rid the streets of crime, but he knows that's not going to be easy. That's why we see him in the trailer suiting up.

Riverdale Quotes

Cheryl: Well, well, well. Stop the presses! The Riverdale rag finally reported a story accurately. Not only is there going to some hideous janky parade snaking its way through town, you four are the architects of this outrage.
Veronica: What’s your problem, Cheryl?
Cheryl: My problem, Veronica, is that the Fourth of July is a day of tragedy for Riverdale. Not celebration. Or have you forgotten what happened to my poor brother Jason?
Betty: Cheryl, Riverdale hasn’t held a parade out of respect for what happened to your brother in like years. It’s time.
Jughead: I mean, you don’t have to come.
Cheryl: Oh, I’ll be there, Insufferable Smurf. Front and center. With a sign of protest in one hand and a horn of compressed air to silence any revelry in the other.

Your name may be “Honey,” but I will always be the queen bee. You have no power over me.
[Cheryl hair-flips and walks away]
