'Riverdale' & 'Jane The Virgin' Are Getting Spinoffs!

'Riverdale' & 'Jane The Virgin' Are Getting Spinoffs!

It’s always good news when The CW announces that new shows are on the way, but when they are spinoffs of our favorite ones, that makes it incredible news.

Both Riverdale and Jane The Virgin have new spinoff pilots on the way. Something important to note is that this just means a pilot episode will be created, but the shows are not officially heading to television yet.

Jane the Novela will be an anthology series that follows one of Jane’s fictional novels each season with the character narrating the story. The first season “will take place at a Napa Valley vineyard, where family secrets (and family members) don’t stay buried for long,” according to THR.

Gina Rodriguez will serve as one of the executive producers. She tweeted, “We got good news from the CW! Jane will be birthing a SPIN OFF!!!!! Jane The Novelas!!!”

A Riverdale spinoff titled Katy Keene will follow “the lives and loves of four iconic Archie Comics characters — including titular fashion-legend-to-be Katy Keene — as they chase their twenty-something dreams in New York City.” Archie Comics chief creative officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa will be running the show!

More pilot orders included an untitled Nancy Drew drama, the Batwoman pilot starring Ruby Rose, and a reboot of the 1987 vampire movie Lost Boys.
