'Riverdale' and 'Katy Keene' Crossover: Kevin Keller visits Josie McCoy in the future to 'confront his past'
It seems as though Keller is in town for a reading of a Broadway play possibly involving all the famous people that Smith, a socialite and gossip columnist, knows
Our favorite Kevin Keller (Casey Cott) from 'Riverdale' is leaving the murder capital of the world for a short visit to New York. Of course, he's leaving in the future to visit his friend Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray) in the big apple on an episode of 'Katy Keene' on April 23.
If you don't watch the show, 'Katy Keene' is a spinoff of 'Riverdale' and is set five years in the future.
Because the show is set years into the future after the events of 'Riverdale' has occurred, we are yet to see what Mr Keller is up to. Also, this is evidence that 'Riverdale' won't kill our favorite character off — we weren't too sure, because it's Riverdale' and we've encountered too many murders and murderers.
After Kevin gives his all in 'Riverdale' April 15 musical episode titled 'Wicked Little Town' — they will be adapting 'Hedwig the Musical' — we can gear up to see him on the streets of the city that never sleeps. He visits his best friend and sister Josie. In case you've forgotten, Kevin's father and Josie's mother are married in 'Riverdale'.
Photos from the April 23 episode titled 'Gloria' show Kevin chilling in the infamous apartment 4B that Josie shares with Pepper Smith (Julia Chan), Jorge 'Ginger' Lopez (Jonny Beauchamp) and Katy Keene (Lucy Hale).
It seems as though Keller is in town for a reading of a Broadway play possibly involving all the famous people that Smith, a socialite and gossip columnist knows. "Pepper helps him confront something from his past while he's there, is the way I'd phrase it," Cott said in an interview.
Cott was also asked if he was likely to join 'Katy Keene', to which he replied, "Kevin is a really important piece of 'Riverdale' so the romantic idea of doing a show from the beginning to the end, I'd say I lean towards that."
We are so excited to see that Kevin is alive though, but we don't know much about the narratives of the other 'Riverdale' characters. The characters in 'Katy Keene' have a warmer approach in which darkness is given a new meaning — more like relationship drama over murders, and we are here for it.
We don't know the future of 'Riverdale' as the cast members are set to graduate soon, but what we are happy about the crossover episodes of our favorite characters.
