The secret is out. 

Lucy Hale (Pretty Little Liars, Privileged, Truth or Dare, Life Sentence) has announced that she has landed the lead role in an upcoming Riverdale spinoff. 

Yep, it’s really happening!

The spinoff exists within the Archie comic universe (like Riverdale and Sabrina currently airing on Netflix) and will no doubt tease a dark, mysterious plotline.

Another interesting point of difference – the new series is touted to have a more musical theme. And we know that Lucy has the pipes, so we’re not too worried about it just being an autotune overload. 


Katy Keene follows four Archie comic characters navigating life in New York City in their 20s – so a bit of an older skew to the show than its predecessors .

Katy (Hale) is an aspiring fashion designer, juggling work, love and friendships. 

The new show is created by the same people responsible for Riverdale – Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Michael Grassi, so we’re sure that glossy plotline will be met with a darker angle. 

The pilot was ordered in January, so hopefully we can see something from Katy Keene before the end of 2019!
