    Hiram Lodge Isn't Actually Dying On "Riverdale," And Here's Why

    The truth comes out!

    Yesterday, Riverdale announced the departures of Marisol Nichols and Skeet Ulrich, who play Hermione Lodge and FP Jones.

    And a few episodes ago on Riverdale, we found out that Hiram Lodge was diagnosed with an unnamed neuromuscular disorder, and is dying.

    So it's safe to assume that the Riverdale parents only have a few episodes left, right?

    The CW

    Well, here's where the plot thickens.

    Katy Keene star Lucy Hale came on set with us to talk all about the show and spilled one verrrrrrrrrrry interesting secret in particular.

    When we asked which Riverdale characters would appear on Katy Keene, Lucy said this:


    Keep in mind that Katy Keene takes place five years after Riverdale.

    The CW

    Meaning that Hiram surely can't be "dying" during this season on Riverdale if he's gonna eventually appear on Katy Keene.

    Riverdale and Katy Keene creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has also teased a crossover later this season where someone from Riverdale will face off with Katy's boyfriend, K.O., in the boxing ring.

    And we know Hiram Lodge is no stranger to face-offs OR boxing!!!!

    The CW

    So, right now, we can't confirm exactly what Hiram will be doing on Katy Keene, but we do know that there's about to be some MAJOR Hiram Lodge drama on Riverdale.
