On January 24th, 2019, it was announced that there will be another spin-off connected to Riverdale.
The spin-off will follow Katy Keene and will also by titled the same name. Riverdale show-runner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa will be writing the pilot episode, as it is only the pilot episode that has been ordered so far. Roberto will also be an executive producer, alongside Michael Grassi.

No release date has been hinted at or announced as of yet, however that doesn’t mean we can’t look ahead!
Here is all we know about Katy Keene so far and what we could possibly expect:
Sex and the City meets Riverdale?
Katy Keene is a 21-year-old model, singer and actress in the Archie Comics, however we are expected to see this Katy conquer the city of New York as a Fashion Designer.
Cue the dance numbers
It will be a musical dramedy – and with Crazy Ex-Girlfriend ending, we need one!
It has been highly hinted that Katy Keene and Veronica Lodge were friends, whilst Veronica still lived in the Big Apple. Although a Riverdale/Kelly Keene crossover isn’t certain, Veronica could manage a trip away to NYC sometime in the future.
Katy has a crew
In addition to Katy being the show’s lead role, she will be joined by three other main characters as her best friends and aspiring artists. In the Archie Comics, one of Katy’s best friends is redhead Lucki Lorelei, meaning this character could also be brought to life.
Teen sass – yes, please
In the Archie Comics, Katy has a younger sister who goes by ‘Sis’ and although she begun the comics as a seven-year-old, she was later re-imagined as a fifteen-year-old. If the comics are anything to go by, Katy is Sis’ legal guardian, meaning there is a possible chance that we may get to meet the character.
Roaring for this dream casting
Katy Keene is often compared to the singer Katy Perry, due to their similar appearances, although we highly doubt Perry will be cast in the role.
