It's official, guys! Kicking off our Pinoy pride this 2021 is none other than AC Bonifacio, who just revealed on her Instagram that that she's set to appear in an episode of Riverdale. Yup, you read that right!
The Filipina-Canadian performer, who recently celebrated her 18th birthday last December, took to social media to make the most epic announcement. "Here's my page 1/365 submission," AC subtly dropped the bomb, posting a video clip from the show that features her having a dance showdown with Madelaine Petsch, who plays Cheryl Blossom in the US teen drama series. "Startin' off the year right [with] a lil sneak peek to #Riverdale Season 5!"
AC's IG upload was a repost from Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, creator of Riverdale and Chief Creative Officer at Archie Comics. "2021 Goals. Buckle up, Gang. #Riverdale returns on the @thecw with new episodes on 1/20/21," his original caption read.
There's no word yet as to what exactly AC's role will be on Riverdale, but we'll know soon enough since the CW series—which also stars KJ Apa as Archie Andrews, Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper, Camila Mendes as Veronica Lodge, and Cole Sprouse as Jughead Jones—is coming back for its fifth season on January 20, 2020.
So exciting! Congratulations, AC!
