Josie Might Be Returning To 'Riverdale' For Season 5, But What About The Pussycats?

You can take the girl out of Riverdale, but only for so long. After leaving Riverdale for one season to star on the short-lived spinoff, Katy Keene, it looks like Josie will return to Riverdale for Season 5, though whether she's really back for good or just a fun guest arc, remains to be seen.

Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa teased Josie's Riverdale comeback in an Instagram post on Sunday, Jan. 18, celebrating actor Ashleigh Murray's birthday. "Ashleigh, like Josie, you are a super-star. You are passionate, a pro, and a class-act through and through," he wrote in part, alongside a photo taken during one of Riverdale's many Comic-Con experiences. "Can't wait to for what's coming next," he added, "Starting with...A BIG REUNION!!!! Love you, Lady!! ๐ŸŽ‚โค๏ธ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿงจ๐ŸŽค๐ŸŽน๐ŸŽŸ."

Now, what would be a bigger reunion than Josie's triumphant return to Riverdale?

If Murray is getting ready to reprise her role as Josie on Riverdale, it's unclear whether or not she'll be back as a series regular, or a guest star. What is certain, however, is that she will be singing. Aguirre-Sacasa has been dropping Season 5 hints via emoji all over his Instagram and Twitter this summer, and this Murray birthday post is no exception. The first few emojis โ€” a birthday cake, a heart, a present, and a trophy โ€” seem more Murray-specific, but the last four โ€” dynamite, a microphone, a piano, and a ticket โ€” are definitely hinting at Josie's comeback.
