MANILA, Philippines — Kapamilya dancer AC Bonifacio will appear on the 5th season of popular US TV show “Riverdale.”

In her Instagram account, AC shared a video of the US TV show featuring her in a dance battle with the series’ main character, Cheryl Blossom, played by American actress Madelaine Petsch.

“Here's my page 1/365 submission :) startin off the year right w a lil sneak peek to #Riverdale Season 5!” AC captioned her post.

The new season of “Riverdale” is set to premiere in the US this January 20.

This is reportedly the first time that a Filipino talent will be appearing in the US series. In 2010, Charice Pempengco appeared on the musical drama "Glee" as Sunshine Corazon.

AC was last featured in "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" last 2013. AC made headlines last year for her dance covers of Blackpink songs, which the K-pop group recognized.
