The special will also serve as a mini reunion from the Josie and the Pussycats live-action film. Rachel Leigh Cook will reprise her role as Josie McCoy and voice Cheryl Blossom as well. Cree Summer will provide Josie’s singing voice. Seth Green, Breckin Meyer, and Donald Faison will revisit their roles as DuJour, the boy band from the film. However, the early description of the special suggests that Josie and her friends have gone through some wild adventures of their own.
“In the half-hour special, Archie faces the action-packed return of Josie and the Pussycats from outer space to Riverdale in this animated comedy. Featuring the origin of Archie Andrews as only the Robot Chicken writers can tell it!”
