It’s not known exactly how Skeet and Lucy got together, but it could have been through The CW series Riverdale.

Skeet stars in the show as Jughead’s dad, FP Jones, while Lucy made a cameo in Riverdale in season four during a crossover episode, as her character Katy Keene is best pals with Veronica Lodge and the girls reunited in New York.

Lucy was then seen reprising her role as Katy for her own series Katy Keene – a Riverdale spinoff that takes place five years after the events of Riverdale.

It was only commissioned for one season, with Lucy telling fans she was ‘heartbroken’ over the series being axed in July.

Tearing up in a video shared online, Lucy said: ‘Truly, one of the highlights of my life. Just such a joy from top to bottom. It’s happened a few times to me and each time it’s just heartbreaking. It’s a job that has broken my heart numerous times.

‘This is a bad one, it’ll take some time to get over but that’s not why I’m making this video. Mainly I wanted to make this video so you could hear it straight from me so nothing is misconstrued. Long story short I am just grateful, I’m grateful for the role of a lifetime, what a blast.’

She continued: ‘I’m so proud of what we made. I do believe it’s timeless. I think sometimes things just don’t work out and maybe it was just not the right time for it. I don’t know, I’m a little confused.’

Skeet, meanwhile, announced his exit from Riverdale at the end of season four.

He told TV Line last year: ‘I’m incredibly grateful for the friendships I’ve made on Riverdale, and I will miss seeing everyone on a daily basis. But I’ve decided that it’s time for me to move on to explore other creative opportunities.’

Fans still get to see FP season five of Riverdale, however, as the first three episodes pick up from where season four left off, after it was cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The remaining episodes have been carried over to the new season, with episode four seeing Riverdale jump seven years into the future.

Metro.co.uk has reached out to reps for Lucy and Skeet.
