The CW is not moving forward with a second season of the `Riverdale` spinoff `Katy Keene.`
`Katy Keene` was the last remaining show on The CW's slate not to be `picked up for another season after the network did a bulk renewal back in January of all its other scripted series that weren't headed for a pre-planned ending. Two other freshman dramas, `Batwoman` and `Nancy Drew,` were among the early renewals.
At the time, the network ordered additional scripts for `Katy Keene,` suggesting some confidence in the series, which had not yet made its premiere on the network. However, `Katy Keene` was not able to match the success of `Riverdale` during its run, hovering around a 0.2 rating in the demo with a week of delayed viewing factored in, according to Nielsen.
Co-created by Michael Grassi and `Riverdale` creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, `Katy Keene` followed the lives and loves of four iconic Archie Comics characters - fashion legend-to-be Katy Keene, singer/songwriter Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray), performer Jorge Lopez/Ginger (Jonny Beauchamp), and `It Girl` Pepper Smith (Julia Chan) - as they chase their twenty-something dreams in New York City together.
