The CW Cancels ‘Katy Keene’ After One Season


One of The CW’s newest series for 2020 was Riverdale spin-off Katy Keene, starring former Pretty Little Liar Lucy Hale and Riverdale‘s own Ashleigh Murray. The series was set five years in the future and followed Josie McCoy as she journeyed to New York to pursue her dreams of becoming a recording artist, befriending and rooming with aspiring fashion designer Katy Keene, drag queen Jorge Lopez, and entrepreneur Pepper Smith. The drama had many musical moments and romantic plots and was almost like Riverdale, minus the murder and dark storylines. However, it just wasn’t enough to keep the song and dance going.

TVLine reports that after just one season, The CW has surprisingly given Katy Keene the boot. The series had its season 1, and now series, finale in May, bringing the show’s run to a total of 13 episodes. It included appearances from familiar Riverdale faces, including Sierra McCoy, Kevin Keller, and Hiram Lodge. Even though fans won’t be able to see the Fab Four on new adventures, with Riverdale reportedly getting a time jump early on in its upcoming season, it could mean they’d catch up to Katy Keene‘s timeline. Maybe the Fab Four and Core Four will cross paths, but until then, it’s just a mystery what Katy, Josie, Pepper, and Jorge will be up to.

Katy Keene is available to stream on HBO Max and for free on The CW app.

Megan has been passionate about writing since she was little and has been passionate about all things pop culture and nerdy since almost as long. Joining Nerds and Beyond in 2019, she also graduated from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh in 2020 with a Bachelor of Arts in Multimedia Journalism. Megan is constantly binge-watching shows and finding new things to obsess over. 9-1-1 and Marvel currently reign as the top obsessions. You can find her on Twitter @marvels911s if you ever want to discuss some certain firefighters.
