For years, Riverdale has become a bonafide phenomenon on The CW, giving generations of viewers a whole new appreciation for the Archie Comics world. Next week, that is set to expand in a pretty epic way, with the debut of the show's spinoff, Katy Keene. Before the series officially premieres, the network is giving fans a chance to get properly acquainted with Katy Keene (Lucy Hale). On Wednesday, The CW released a preview for "Chapter Sixty-Nine: Men of Honor". You can check it out above!
The episode will feature a meeting between Hale's character and Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes), years before the events of Katy Keene actually take place.
"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," Aguirre-Sacasa and fellow executive producer 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!"
Oh, and the promo hints at quite a lot of fighting between the show's male ensemble of characters, including Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse) and Bret Weston Wallis (Sean Depner) settling their differences in a literal duel. But at the moment, that feels like small potatoes.
