The CW Archieverse continues to expand as Riverdale’s first spinoff starts shooting in New York. Katy Keene, played by Lucy Hale, is not as well known as Betty, Veronica or Sabrina, but she was a long-running comic book star back when comic books could be about anything, rather than just male power fantasies. In this version of the story, the always fashion-minded Katy is “a twenty-something New Yorker who aspires to be a fashion designer. When she’s not working as a personal shopper at a luxury department store, she’s navigating friendship and dating in the big city.”
So it’s your basic “style gal juggling life and love in the city” take for a new generation. Carrie Bradshaw with a lot less baggage. And appropriately, the costumes look pretty cute:
Bear in mind that the coats and footwear probably aren’t going to appear on camera. They appear to be dressing her like a walking Valentine’s Day card, which also strikes us as fairly on point. We’re not the demographic for this show, but if the fashion’s good, we might check it out.
