Axed: Katy Keene
Riverdale spin-off ends after just one season.
Riverdale spin-off Katy Keene has been axed by The CW after just one season.
But Variety reports producers Warner Bros. hope to keep it continuing on another platform (Netflix presumably as a natural home?).
Katy Keene follows aspiring fashion designer Katy Keene (Lucy Hale), who 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).
The axe falls after it drew poor ratings in the US, at around 400,000 viewers.
Katy Keene aired in Australia on FOX8.
