Ashleigh Murray Might Be Leaving 'Riverdale' for 'Katy Keene!'

Ashleigh Murray has joined Riverdale spin-off series Katy Keene!

The actress – aka Riverdale‘s Josie McCoy – has signed on for the new CW pilot, Deadline reports.

Katy Keene hails from Riverdale creator/executive producer Robert Aguirre-Sacasa.

The musical dramedy centers on four aspiring artists trying to make it on Broadway, on the runway, and in the recording studio.

Josie, now 20-something, will set off “on a new adventure to make it in the big city. More determined than ever to break into the music scene as the next Diana Ross, Josie finds herself forging new friendships, falling into new relationships, and, one day, becoming the star she is destined to be.”

If Katy Keene is picked up to series, Ashleigh will be leaving Riverdale.

Katy Keene takes places years after Riverdale High School,” CW president Mark Pedowitz said. “There are no plans to do anything [regarding a crossover]. Any of the Riverdale characters who come to Katy Keene will be older. Robert is getting the pilot right.”
