Hall is set to appear in fourth episode of season 3 titled “The Midnight Club”.

Aguirre-Sacasa has confirmed at the TCA (via Deadline) that The Midnight Club was a long-planned flashback episode with the adults as high school teens.“It’s our take on The Breakfast Club, says the creator. Essentially, all the younger actors will play their parents, read K.J. Apa (Archie) plays the younger version of Archie’s dad Fred (Luke Perry), and Camilla Mendes (Veronica) will play her younger mom Hermione (Marisol Nichols), etc. We learn learn about a really dark secret that the parents have been keeping since they were in high school,”
