Riverdale has grown into one of the most popular TV shows of the modern era and Hollywood is taking notices. As first reported by Variety, the latest Riverdale spinoff, Katy Keene, has found its star in Lucy Hale.
Based on the wildly popular Archie Comics series, Katy Keene is set to follow the life and times of a charismatic fashion designer, Katy Keene, and her ragtag group of friends as they attempt to make their unlikely dreams come true. The titular character, played by Hale, is described as a “bold, big-hearted and independent twenty-something New Yorker” who will struggle to balance both her work and social life at the same time.
Hale, who has made a name for her self on the small screen with her roles in Pretty Little Liars, joins Camille Hyde, Lucien Laviscount, Ashleigh Murray, Jonny Beauchamp, and Julia Chan in the cast and the series is set to be a part of an upcoming lineup on The CW. If it is anything like other shows based on Archie Comics, it is bound to be a gritty cult classic.
