‘Riverdale’ Spinoff ‘Katy Keene’ Ordered to Series at The CW

Welcome to the Big City. The CW has given a full season order to Riverdale spinoff Katy Keene, the network announced today.

Per the official description: “In a timeless New York City, as enchanting as Riverdale is moody, aspiring fashion designer Katy Keene (Lucy Hale) meets Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray), fresh off the bus to chase her musical dreams.

Their world is populated with kindred-spirit starving artists, including mysterious socialite Pepper Smith (Julia Chan) and Broadway-bound performer Jorge Lopez – and his drag queen alter ego, Ginger (Jonny Beauchamp). While their climb to the top is rife with obstacles, this found family will stop at nothing to see their names in lights. Based on the Archie Comics characters.”

The network also unveiled the first key art from the series, which you can see below.

Katy Keene joins fellow freshmen series Batwoman and Nancy Drew for The CW’s 2019 – 2020 season.
