August 24, 2017: The CW Planning a "Supergirl" and "Riverdale" Crossover Episode?

by Neil Cole

A new photo from the set of "Riverdale" suggests that The CW might be planning a "Supergirl" crossover episode for the upcoming Fall season.

Earlier today, Archie Comics Chief Creative Officer and "Riverdale" creator/showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa tweeted a photo of actress Melissa Benoist in full costume as Supergirl alongside Betty (Lili Reinhart) and Veronica (Camila Mendes) at Pop's Chock'lit Shoppe with the caption, "Look who dropped in to #Riverdale for a visit! Worlds colliding!! Can a crossover be far behind??"/

Considering that Benoist has visited the "Riverdale" set before, since both shows film in Vancouver and are currently in production, it's possible that this latest photo is from just another friendly visit by the actress to the set.

However, since Benoist is wearing her Supergirl costume in the photo and it appears to be taken during an actual filming sequence, fans just may indeed be treated to another epic crossover episode at some point in the near future. Only time will tell...
