Since its premiere, Riverdale‘s success has brought them three seasons, and a spinoff called The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina which premiered on Netflix October 2018.
Now, the CW is attempting to do it again with another Riverdale spinoff.
Though a premiere date hasn’t been set yet, the show’s has been receiving a lot of hype on social media. The show is based on Archie Comic book character, Katy Keene. But, apparently it is going to be much different than Riverdale. Katy Keene is a passionate and driven young woman but her dream is to make it in the fashion industry in New York.

The spinoff is going to focus on Katy, but creators hint that she won’t be at it alone. Three essential characters from the comic book will be joining Katy on her fashion escapades in New York.
The secrecy has made fans more interested and curious. Who will be in the show? Will there be any crossovers from any other previous CW shows?
Many seem to think Katy Perry is the perfect fit for the role of Katy Keene. Throughout Perry’s career, she has been compared to the comic book character, and fans think she could be the perfect Keene.

As for crossovers from Riverdale or The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, it’s all up in the air. Keene’s story seems to take far away from the world of Archie Andrews and Sabrina Spellman. But, Aguirre-Sacasa as the creator, you never know. He always seems to find a way to connect them all, and fans are excited to see the Archie Comic U
niverse come together once again.
