Posted by at 1:50 pm on February 6, 2019

Last month it was announced that The CW has placed a pilot order for a Riverdale spinoff based upon the Archie Comics title Katy Keene, and now we’ve got our first piece of casting news for the potential series. Riverdale star Ashleigh Murray – who plays Josie McCoy of Josie and the Pussycats fame – will be reprising her role as one of the leads in Katy Keene. The description reads as follows:

Spinning off from her time in the small town of Riverdale, a now 20-something Josie McCoy (Murray) sets off on a new adventure to make it in the big city. More determined than ever to break into the music scene as the next Diana Ross, Josie finds herself forging new friendships, falling into new relationships, and, one day, becoming the star she is destined to be.

The pilot will take place several years after Riverdale and revolve around fashion-legend-to-be Katy and three of her Archie Comics friends as they chase their twenty-something dreams in New York City. Should it make it to series, Murray will be exiting Riverdale, which was recently renewed for its fourth season.

Archie Comics chief creative officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Riverdale, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) is developing the spinoff, and writing the script for the pilot with Michael Grassi.
