ICYMI, Filipino-Canadian dancer AC Bonifacio first revealed that she's making a cameo in the popular CW series Riverdale on January 2, 2021. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the creator of the series, also shared the news on his Instagram account by posting a video of AC all decked out in the Vixen uniform doing a dance battle with Cheryl Blossom, played by Madelaine Petsch.

The fifth and latest season aired in January 2021, but we've yet to see AC on the show. Good news, though: more details have been revealed about her participation in the new season! Riverdale After Dark, a podcast hosted by Comic Book Club that's dedicated to the show, shared never-before-seen photos of AC on their Instagram account. According to their post, AC will be taking on the role of Star Vixen. She'll first make an appearance in Chapter Eighty-Three: Fire in the Sky, which will drop on Netflix on March 11.


In case you aren't caught up with the latest season, the first few episodes saw the Riverdale gang graduate from high school, followed by a seven-year time jump. By then, Archie and the gang have also graduated from their teenage antics and are now navigating their way through adulthood. Toni is now in charge of the Vixens and has started recruiting her new squad, one of which is the character played by AC.

It wasn't mentioned if AC's character will only be making a appearance in that one episode or if she has scenes in future ones, but fans of the show and of the 18-year-old performer are excited to see her show off her dance skills as a Vixen on the show, alongside its cool cast members. How many of us can say they've worn the iconic Vixen uniform while doing a show-off with Cheryl Blossom?!
