Katy Keene And Her Friends Chase Their Dreams In An Extended Trailer

by Erik Amaya

The CW has released an extended trailer for the upcoming series Katy Keene. Based on Archie Comics characters, the series stars Lucy Hale as the title character; a would-be fashion designer with an obsession to work at Lacy’s Department Store. She is joined by Ashleigh Murray, who continues to play Riverdale‘s Josie McCoy on this new series. Both characters chase their dreams in a magical version of New York populated with kindred-spirit starving artists, including mysterious socialite Pepper Smith (Julie Chan) and Broadway-bound performer Jorge Lopez (Jonny Beauchamp) – and his drag queen alter ego, Ginger. All hope to find fame and they might be able to do it together. From the trailer, the show seems light as air, but with Riverdale executive producer Robert Aguirre-Sacasa involved, there is always the potential for the magical New York to contain some darkness.

Then again, maybe a puff pastry with Archie Comics characters will be a nice balance to the darkness on Riverdale, which will air before Katy Keene in the Mid-Season (a new Nancy Drew series will be Riverdale‘s lead-out in the Fall). From the trailer, the show resembles earlier CW and The WB programs, but time will tell if it continues The CW tradition of long-running shows based on comics, or become another short-lived CW series starting Hale.

Katy Keene debuts in 2020 on The CW.
