WATCH: The official trailer for Riverdale spin-off Katy Keene has landed

Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale plays the lead


The official trailer for Riverdale’s spin-off series Katy Keene has landed.

The new CW series, which takes place five years after Riverdale, stars Lucy Hale as Katy Keene – a fashion designer who welcomes aspiring musician Josie (Ashleigh Murray) as her new roommate.

Katy designs clothes for anyone she can, including her roommate Josie, whose singing talent catches the attention of Alexander Cabot (Lucien Laviscount), a CEO who hopes to reboot the record label division of his father’s corporate empire.

But Alexander’s dream of signing Josie to a recording contract meets resistance from Cabot Media’s powerful senior vice president Alexandra, who also happens to be his twin sister.

Josie and Katy’s roommate, Jorge (Jonny Beauchamp), works at his family’s bodega and has his eye on Broadway, but after a series of rejections, he hopes to take his drag performance career as Ginger to the next level.

The mysterious Pepper Smith (Julia Chan) plans to open her own version of Andy Warhol’s Factory. She has the connections, but no one seems to know where she got her money or if she really has any at all.

As these aspiring artists take on the runway, the recording studio, Broadway and the New York social scene, they find more than just a career in the big city — they find long-lasting friendship.
