Riverdale season 4 cast: Who is Veronica Lodge's sister Hermosa? Who is Mishel Prada? | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV

Season four of teen drama Riverdale will be premiering on The CW in America on Wednesday, October 9. Netflix is then going to be making the opening instalment available to UK fans from Thursday, October 10 at 8am BST. The show will be dealing with the mystery of Jughead Jones (played by Cole Sprouse) as the main characters enter their final year of high school.

Filming is taking place on season four with the first half of the run believed to have been completed.

As work on the new episodes continues, The CW announced a new cast addition in the form of star Mishel Prada.

The actress will be portraying Veronica Lodge’s (Camila Mendes) older sister Hermosa but it’s not clear when she will be arriving.

Her casting was announced last month by The Hollywood Reporter, which described Hermosa as "a Miami-born and -raised private investigator who arrives in town in classic femme fatale fashion. Hermosa is confident, ambitious and calculating — and knows that everything comes with a price."

Actress Mishel shared the news on social media with her 29,000 Instagram followers: “So... I’ve been spending some time in Riverdale lately :) || can’t wait for you to meet Hermosa Lodge #riverdale.”

She also shared a shot of some money and a match packet bearing the logo of La Bonne Nuit, Veronica’s speakeasy underneath Pop’s.

Although the casting news came last month, Hermosa was featured in a brand-new Riverdale season four trailer which dropped at New York Comic-Con over the weekend.

In the teaser, Hermosa is seen in court suggesting she could be representing her father Hiram Lodge (Mark Consuelos), who is languishing in a prison he ironically built.

Hermosa is as equally chic as the rest of the Lodge family and could be part of the plans Hiram was alluding to at the end of season three.

Veronica Lodge star Camila Mendes previously teased that she would be meeting an unknown family member which looks like it could be Hermosa.

Hermosa is Veronica’s half-sister and could be the love child Hiram had with his mistress Mrs Mulwray (Kelly Ripa), who audiences met last year and was being kept at the Five Seasons Hotel.

Veronica isn’t the only one meeting estranged or long-lost family members. Last year, Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) met her brother and FBI Charles Smith (Wyatt Nash).

Who is Mishel Prada?

Prada is a US actress of Latin American heritage who grew up in Hialeah, Miami in Florida.

She has risen to fame thanks to the likes of The Walking Dead, Fear The Walking Dead as Gabi and most recently TV series Vida as Emma.

The actress landed the part in Vida after approaching the casting director for Stranger Things, Carmen Cuba, who later called on her to audition for the Starz drama.

She’s also had roles in Bachelor Lions, The Two Dogs and TV series Corporate.

Speaking about her upbringing to Marie Claire, she said: “In Miami, it feels like a melting pot. You have to learn Spanish to be able to truly survive in the business world.

“I was surprised when I came to L.A.; it felt like everything was much more sprawled out. You have communities—specific neighborhoods that are deeply rooted in other cultures.”

Riverdale season 4 starts on October 10 on Netflix
