Mishel Prada will star as Hermosa, a new private investigator, in Riverdale season 4. Why is Hermosa coming to town? What could she be investigating?
In the new season, Prada will play Hermosa, a new private investigator from Miami who journeys to “the town with pep,” via THR. We don’t know why she comes to town or when she will arrive, but it will be some time in season 4.
Based on the time of the casting news and the nature of the season 4 premiere, I don’t think Prada will arrive in the Riverdale season 4 premiere, which airs Wednesday, Oct. 9. Based on THR’s character description, it will likely happen a little later in the season.
From what I recall, this is one of the most intriguing castings in Riverdale so far. There’s obviously a lot of mystery and mysterious people in the small town, but why would a private investigator come to town? Who would hire Hermosa to dig up some dirt or get to the bottom of some mystery?

That remains unclear and will likely remain that way until Hermosa appears in the series, but I have a few theories, of course.
There are a lot of secrets, but one of the big secrets concerning the main characters in the show has to do with the death of the alleged drug dealer in the Cooper House. It’s unclear who killed the guy, but Betty, Jughead, FP and Alice are all accomplices in destroying and manipulating evidence and covering up the crime.
Could someone who knows him have hired Hermosa? It seems possible.
We also have other people are unaccounted for, especially those who worked for Hiram Lodge. Perhaps, Hermosa could have something to do with Hiram’s various enterprises.
More likely, I think, is that Hermosa is in town investigating something that has to do with that flashforward/cliffhanger scene from the Riverdale season 3 finale.
As we know, Jughead is moving to a new school, a prestigious prep school. It sounds like that flashforward has to do with that prep school in some way. We don’t know how, but I’m guessing there is some underlying darkness at this school that Jughead gets caught up in.
If someone dies, and someone always dies in Riverdale, Hermosa could be in town investigating the death or disappearance of some kind. That’s my prediction at this point. We’ll find out more soon.
At the time of publishing, we’re officially one month away from Riverdale season 4! Stay tuned for more news about the hit series.
